Ministries

Jesus’ earthly ministry was focused on the broken, the needy, the sick, and the desperate. He is a God of compassion and unending love, and our mission is to embody that love to those who need it most.

Worship

We believe that God inhabits the praises of His people, worship is one of the core foundations of Rescue. Our desire is to use music and songs, to help lead others into an uncompromised worship with God and to connect with Him in a greater way. Rescue is committed to extravagantly and passionately expressing our love to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Our primary purpose is to give God the Glory, Honor and Praise that He is worthy of. We desire to sense and experience God’s presence every time the church gathers in fellowship. We want to hear His voice so that more of His character and nature can be found in us!

Discipleship

Small groups and discipleship classes

Children

ROCKs (Reaching Out Christ 2 Kids) In a safe and fun atmosphere, children will grow in the Lord and have their own testimonies. Trained and dedicated leaders, teach children how to have an intimate relationship that will touch Gods presence and encounter a personal calling through Jesus Christ in the Holy Spirit. Our desire is that every child would learn how to live for the Lord in knowing Jesus and walking in relationship with Him.

Jewels of Christ Dance Ministry

The Jewels of Christ Dance Ministry is a form of artistic expression that Glorifies God. In essence to worship, we are used to introduce others to a saving knowledge of God’s Love and Salvation. Our first and foremost desire is to point people to the Lord through this form of The Arts.
The Ministry provides well-rounded biblical principles through quality instruction. Our environment adapts to the students age and desire to develop. The act of expressiveness goes beyond our Sunday church experience, it is our lifestyle. It is the act of worship, whereby we proclaim the value of God in our lives. The public presentations of creative expression, communicates the Word of God, in a living and breathing mode that paves the way for God to touch and transform people to be followers of Jesus.
Let them give praise to his name in the dance, For the Lord has pleasure in his people: he gives the poor in spirit a crown of salvation. ~Psalms 149:3,4

Rescue has launched teams into countries such as Argentina, Columbia, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Peru, Puerto Rico, and Santo Domingo.
We have planted churches, brought relief funds, sponsored water wells to be built, organized conferences and outreach services, supported pastors and their members in developing leaders, in order to maintain healthy ministries. We believe that we are many member of one body with Christ being the head, this is why we are driven to help the whole body of Christ no matter how far we need to reach out to bring the Living Gospel of Jesus Christ. We will continue to serve in missions until all have had an opportunity to hear about our Loving Savior.

Yolanda Valentin-Aviles and has grown and developed into several programs, such as our four feeding programs, a soup kitchen, partnerships with Senior Centers, Flu shots, nutrition workshop, blood pressure & HIV pre-screening, and SNAP pre-screening, along with off-site referrals just to name a few. Situated in the heart of Port Richmond on Staten Island, in New York; all programs are designed to serve the needs of the community at large in diverse and meaningful ways.
