Our History

Pray for Africa

Movement Day (MD) was launched in 2010, as a one-day to three-day gathering of ministry, marketplace and not-for-profit leaders passionate about cities and the Gospel of Jesus. It is an initiative of The New York City Leadership Center (NYCLC), a not-for-profit ministry focused on training Christian leaders to impact their cities.

The goal of Movement Day is to accelerate a gospel movement – catalyzing highly trained, motivated and sold-out leaders determined to find solutions to the, “stubborn facts” plaguing cities around the world. We define “stubborn facts,” as crime, poverty, apathy, failed educational systems, unemployment, etc. The approach is to multiply the impact of one – through the unity of many (www.movementday.com).

Movement Day Africa

During the month of October 2016 a delegation of almost 300 African leaders attended the Movement Day gathering in New York, USA. The focus of the gathering was to learn what God is doing in cities around the world, as well as identifying key / significant elements of importance to how the church can play a leading role towards City Transformation. 

During the last day of the gathering the African delegation came together to discuss the possibility of  a Movement Day - Africa. The feeling throughout the room was positive, and a small group of facilitators were selected to lead the development of such a possibility.
