The question of when we will be gathering together again has been the subject of much prayer and discussion by our church’s leadership. We are asking God for wisdom as we attempt to follow the guidelines of New York State and New York City regarding the timing for reopening our church campus. At the same time, we are making plans and putting protocols in place to ensure your safety and well-being when we are able to meet again. Stay tuned for updates as more information becomes available.  

In the meantime, we hope that you will continue to join us for Tuesday Prayer Onlinebeginning at 7pm; Sunday Worship Online, beginning at 9am; and weekday Devotions Onlinebeginning at 10am. We also invite you to check the Churchwide Announcements on our home page to learn about additional online events for each member of your family.

Navajo Nation
Mark and Gail McKeller felt a call to go to Arizona to minister to the Navajo people. They joined a Navajo Nation church and serve as youth and young adult pastors as well as directors for annual Reservation-wide children and youth camps.

Mark and Gail McKeller were longtime members of The Brooklyn Tabernacle serving in a number of ministries, but with a focus on youth and children's ministry.  Over several years, the Lord began to give them a heart for Native American ministry in Arizona.  They began to pray and consult with Pastor Cymbala, and in 2004, they went to Arizona.

For two years, they served at a predominantly Native American church in Phoenix, working in young adult and children's ministries as interim associate pastors.  In 2006, the McKellers joined Broken Arrow Chapel on the Navajo Reservation where they have remained.  Officially called the Navajo Nation, it is the largest reservation in the United States. 

At the church, they are the youth pastors, teaching Sunday School, leading Friday night youth meetings, and directing the summer kids and youth camps.  Many of the teens and children Mark and Gail serve come from troubled homes. This includes homes where parents (one or both), or a close relative to the family, are alcoholic. Most are poor— far worse than what is commonly seen in urban or mainstream America.  Some families struggle mightily to have food to eat and could spend considerable time without electricity or running water.

Mark and Gail desire to see the young people develop into mature believers in Christ, assisting at their local churches and being used by God as ministry leaders throughout the Navajo and other reservations and to the ends of the earth.
