Shakespeare Behind Bars

September 1, 2009

For those of you in the New York City area who attend our film series, this will be familiar; but for those of you who do not attend Revolution here in person and instead listen online, we are very happy to announce that Shakespeare Behind Bars is now available for free steaming on YouTube. We showed this film a while back and it was very well received. We speak a lot about Grace, forgiveness and mercy here at Revolution- but this film perfectly shows what that looks like in practice and in the real world. We hope you enjoy and invite you to come back to this blog post if you’d like to discuss and share your feelings about the film.

We need your help!

August 14, 2009

Hello all,

I am writing you this letter with a heavy heart. As you know, RevolutionNYC has been struggling financially for the last year. I know these are difficult times and we appreciate all those that have helped keep us afloat.

As of late, our situation has reached a critical level. I want to be honest with you about where we are.

1. We did not make payroll this pay period.

2. We are sending this email using our old server which runs out this month. We do not have the money to purchase a mailing list plan for the next newsletter.

3. At the rate we are going, we will not have enough fund to pay our internet server. If this happens we will not be able to continue the weekly podcasts that many of you enjoy.

These financial constraints have severely limited our ministry. It seems that our staff time is dedicated solely to keeping our basic operations going. We continue to minister to people both on line and here in Brooklyn, but we could do so much more if we didn’t have to worry about meeting our monthly bills. Most of our staff is volunteer, and Pastor Vince and I have salaries that are well below an average church salary. All of this, in one of the most expensive cities to live in. We run a bare bones operation. No health insurance. No office space. No expense accounts. Your donations go directly to the ministry of grace. Hanging out with people. Listening. Helping with their struggles. Communicating the message of God’s unconditional love.

I am convinced that in times like these, a ministry like ours is so sorely needed. Please help us continue to exist.

You can donate with a credit card or debit card by clicking here, and you can donate through PayPal by going to our homepage (http://revolutionnyc.com) and using the link on the left side of the page.

You can also mail in checks to 190 Bedford Ave. #211 Brooklyn NY 11211.

Humbly in Grace,

Jay Bakker

Pastor, Revolution NYC
