Our Short Term Missions provide churches, school groups, families, and organizations with the opportunity to come alongside the vision of the Dream Center NYC for a week at a time as they work with our Leadership Program students to serve the city of New York. The Lord is constantly at work in our city and in our lives, and we believe that our Short Term Missions teams multiply the seeds that He has already planted.


  • Dream Center Church ::
    • The Dream Center Church Sunday service is the culmination of each of our weekly community events. Our church exist to give people a place to know God through the sharing of His word, to find freedom through various community groups, to discover their purpose through our next steps program, and to make a difference by finding a place to serve. 
  • NYC Prayer Tour ::
    • On this four-stop tour of the city, our team will guide you through the diverse neighborhoods that New York has to offer. Each stop includes an educational look at what goes on behind the scenes as well as an opportunity to pray for the city and the issues it is facing. We believe that once your heart is broken for the people, your hands will follow the rest of the week as you give your all to serve their community.
  • Residential Assistance ::
    • or over three years now we have been serving disabled, elderly and lonely clients in their homes through our Residential Assistance Program. We clean, de-clutter, and organize apartments, and have the chance to spend time in fellowship with our clients. Residential Assistance is a tangible way to serve people right where they are to where God dreams for them to be.
  • Chelsea and East Harlem Adopt-A-Block ::
    • Our Adopt-A-Block is a weekly outreach that began in Chelsea, Manhattan. Our AAB program serves communities of people living in public housing, or those living on limited income or governmental assistance. What began as a simple hand-out-ministry in 2010 has become a full community courtyard party and bread give-away event. In 2017 we are expanding our Adopt-A-Block program to serve the public housing community in East Harlem.
  • Harlem Restore ::
    • Harlem Restore is a program that was primarily established to to serve the transient, homeless community in East Harlem. We meet immediate physical needs by providing food, clothing, and hygiene products. Through consistency, we also aim to create lasting relationships by means of offering a place to sit, talk, and pray. 
  • Special Projects ::
    • Your team may have the opportunity to participate in special projects throughout the city, including but not limited to painting, deep-cleaning, canvassing, outdoor garden work, and prison ministry.
