US North Atlantic

The North Atlantic is a densely populated and widely diverse region extending from Virginia to Maine (VA, D.C., MD, DE, WV, PA, NJ, NY, CT, RI, MA, VT, NH, ME). It includes the capital of our country as well as the unofficial ‘capital of the world.’ The North Atlantic is where the gospel first reached America’s shores, but it's now statistically the least Christian region in the nation.

This post-Christian context is reproducing many of the same challenges that arose after the collapse of Christendom in Europe. To see this trajectory reversed, the North Atlantic needs pastors and planters who lead their churches to preach the gospel faithfully in every city, from the massive boroughs of New York to the tiny hamlets of New England.
