About Pastor David Beidel
Pastor David Beidel is married to his High School sweetheart, Rebecca. Together they raised four beautiful children and planted a church in one of the most violent and under-served regions of NYC. After thirty years of ministry, they continue to lift up Jesus and represent His burning heart for the broken-hearted and oppressed.
David is the author of two books, co-producer of three worship albums, founder of Saturate NYC, creator of the SaturateNYC.app, and co-founder of Jesus Week, His prayer is that he would live up to his namesake and be known as "a man after God's own heart."
No sheep without a shepherd
Imagine for a second that every person in NYC is connected to a church family that prays and cares for them.
In recent years suicide has increased by over 70% in the USA. Loneliness is one of the primary reasons. That is heartbreaking. Most of those beautiful souls believed no one cared whether they lived or died. We can end the epidemic of loneliness by adopting our neighborhoods.
We are actively mobilizing 2000 churches to adopt 1-2000 homes surrounding them; so that there would be "no sheep without a shepherd, in our city of 10 million and "the Lamb for sinner's slain might receive the reward for His suffering."
