Hearts, Hands and Hallelujahs

Don’t miss "House Afire"–a revealing three-part series beginning Sunday, January 14th in the New York Times. 

They are striving to change the character of New York, one soul at a time.  By the end of this year, their membership will include an estimated one million New Yorkers.  They are the Pentecostals, and they are taking in some of the city’s most troubled and needy and pointing them–and their neighborhoods–in whole new directions.

David Gonzalez spent a year with members of a small storefront Pentecostal church in Harlem.  His fascinating report takes you into the homes, and the lives, of church leaders and followers, giving you a rare behind-the-scenes look at the issues, the challenges and the faith of the world’s fastest-growing form of Christianity.

Meet some of the subjects of the series, and hear their stories in their own words, through a special English/Spanish multimedia feature, beginning January 14th, at http://www.nytimes.com/packages/khtml/2007/01/14/nyregion/20070114_EN-STOREFRONT_FEATURE.htmll


  1. Hey guys Looks good, but the link is bad.

  2. This link is not activated until January 14th.

  3. I congratulate and commend D. Gonzalez, The New York Times, and members of Arca de Salvacion for an honest portrait of a Pentecostal church family.
    Reared in the Pentecostal movement, I was reminded of dynamics–good and bad–I experienced as a youngster. Bravo!

  4. This a nice portrayal of a store front Pentecostal Church. It brought back a lot of memories for me. I’ve fixed the link. You folks really need to check this out.
