Welcome to the Church of the City Podcast.
Church of the City New York is a church community passionate about making disciples who "practice the way of Jesus together for the renewal of the city." We believe in the authority and power of the scriptures to shape our communal life and practice, as we seek to teach God's word with clarity and conviction.
Most of the teaching in our community is done by Pastor Jon Tyson and our teaching team. We have both morning and evening services and meet in the heart of Manhattan.

The Way of Jesus: Self-Denial - Jon Tyson
This Sunday, Pastor Jon continued our "The Way of Jesus" series with "The Way of Self-Denial." The greatest challenge to our discipleship is the centrality of our self and our desires. Jesus extends us an invitation for a transformed life by denying ourselves, taking up our cross, and following Him. We must not soften sin to the point of pain management, but rather kill it completely in our pursuit of Jesus. Only His love breaks the spell of our own self.
The Way of Jesus: Introduction - Jon Tyson
This past Sunday, Pastor Jon kicked off a new sermon series called "The Way of Jesus." He warned us against the ways our fallen world can trap and form our hearts through lusts, pride, and toxic religion, and instead spurred us to follow in the way of Jesus so that we can be formed, transformed, and conformed to His likeness. We were created to enjoy God and walk with Him, imaging our Creator, experiencing the our fully formed selves living with Christ in us.
Colossians: The Movement You Long For - Suzy Silk
This past Sunday, Pastor Suzy finished out our Summer Colossians series by teaching about the “Movement You Long For.” She reminded us that, as believers, we have all been called into the God’s movement to bring His Kingdom by spreading the good news of the gospel and making disciples.
Colossians: The Mission You Long For - Adam Durso
Pastor Adam Durso continued our series through Colossians by diving into “The Mission You Long For.” He Broke down Paul’s exhortation for the church to be devoted to prayer, watchfulness, and thankfulness as the starting point for living on mission. This heart posture brings awareness of where God wants us to partner with Him, and that often our mission field is at the intersection of our pain and in the comfort of the Gospel. Out of the overflow of how God comforts us, that we can begin to comfort ot
Colossians: The Family You Long for - Olivia Munn-Shirsath
This Sunday, Pastor Olivia continued our Summer series by breaking down the relationships in the home mentioned in Colossians with “The Family You Long For.” She reminded us that we are called to live like Jesus, who came “not to be served, but to serve,” and by taking this posture into our familial relationships, we can present a redemptive vision of families to the world.
Colossians: The Peace You Long For - Ralph Castillo
THE PEACE YOU LONG FOR: This Sunday we continued our journey through the book of Colossians with "The Peace You Long For" from guest Pastor Ralph Castillo, who implored us to let Jesus and the peace only He can provide reign supremely in our hearts.
The messages are timely and relevant to our current season. For new and for old disciples this is time well spent. Both challenges and nurtures the spirit and provides instruction in forward momentum.
