Matchmaking - For Heaven's Sake

(Respond to this exciting news at

The landmark (former) Cavaleri's Restaurant now feeds souls at New Hope Ministries at the corner of 2nd & Hoffman Avenues in Albany, New York.

By Pastor Jay Richmond, Renewal Prayer Network

Sometimes I feel like I have the greatest job ever. It’s like I’m a match maker for the Kingdom of God.

I recently had the privilege of introducing two pastors to one another: Mike Moore from City Church and Keith Davey from New Hope Ministries. Both of these guys serve in Albany, New York and have a passion for seeing lost souls come to a personal relationship with Jesus. Keith (left) & his family.

Their desire for this is very strong and they understand the need for working together.

Mike Moore at their church plant in the one of the most "unchurched" cities in America that now has over 150 committed attendees every Sunday.

To see the thousands of souls they’re asking God for, they realize it is much too much for any one individual congregation. It was great watching Mike and Keith dream for the Body of Christ in Albany. What will come of this new relationship? I don’t know, but I am anticipating God to bring together more of his leaders and to unite the Great Church of Albany.

Who needs a little matchmaking in your city? Prayer: Pray with me for Albany! I believe Albany is a very important city in what God wants to do in New York State as well as in the nation. I’ve heard it said that Albany legislates New York City and New York City is the capital of the world. This next week, Pastor Keith is hosting 3 nights of prayer, Jan. 28-30, 7-8:30 pm, at New Hope Ministries, 334 Second Ave., Albany, NY 12209. Several congregations will be praying focusing on this theme – Albany Churches pursuing His presence for unity, revival and the lost. Join us in prayer and if you’re near Albany, join us in person.
