While MOVEMENT.ORG began in New York City in 2010, it now has expanded to 5 continents, with an interest from 200+ cities globally. In addition, MOVEMENT.ORG’s Global Hub Leaders are based in Asia, Africa, Canada, Australia/South Pacific, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The global organization is actively serving and supporting city leaders as a way to bring the Body of Christ together for the spiritual and social good of their cities.
MOVEMENT.ORG is a global organization focused on catalyzing Christian leaders to spiritually and socially impact the urban centers in which they live, work and do ministry. This is accomplished through connecting, unifying, equipping and motivating diverse leaders who share common goals. MOVEMENT.ORG serves as the parent (umbrella?) organization with three primary initiatives including MovementDay.com, LEAD.NYC and NxtMove.
MovementDay.com, an initiative of MOVEMENT.ORG, is a collaboration of Christian leaders and influencers uniting a region or city by crossing denominational, ethnic, geographic, and socio-economic divides. It’s a story of men and women experiencing the joy of driving measurable progress against the greatest spiritual, social and ethical challenges of their city or region.
MOVEMENT is fostering the development of Movement Day expressions around the world. Visit movementday.com to see what God is doing through Movement Day expressions.
Our mission is to catalyze leaders to spiritually and socially impact their cities through rigorous research, uniting prayer, unified local leadership, and powerful collaboration between diverse sectors.
We believe something powerful happens in a city when Christian leaders come together across generational, cultural, denominational, and socio-economic lines. While division in the church breeds atheism in the world, the unity in the church is the aroma of Christ to the world.
God is using Movement Day to bring the Body of Christ together in a region. But beyond a gathering, Movement Day serves as an accelerator for leaders – church, business, non-profit – to collaborate together in addressing a region’s most stubborn spiritual and social realities. non-profit = community? service?
We all have many diverse gifts to offer and, in turn, there are many ways in which you can make a difference to Movement.org’s work. Our mission focuses both on intense prayer and organized action to transform our communities. So please pray for our vision of cities united in the gospel.
You can also volunteer in a number of ways, by donating your time to networking with church, community and marketplace organizations in your region to share Movement.org’s mission; helping launch an expression in your city; volunteering at expressions and Movement.org events and by donating what you can to help us spread the gospel around the world.

Movement.org, which was founded in 2008, was formerly known as The New York City Leadership Center. The Center's purpose was to increase the leadership effectiveness of church and non-profit leaders across Greater New York City. The focus was primarily NYC based.
Beginning with the launch of Movement Day in 2010, the Center increasingly received invitations to serve cities nationally and globally. The invitations focused on how best to convene church, non-profit, and business leaders within a city so that the city could flourish spiritually and socially. Now Movement.org is a relationship with 200+ cities across 5 continents who have either launched Movement Day Expressions or are actively working to start initiatives in cities across their countries.
In addition, we deepened our commitment to the New York City area in 2017. Recognizing our increasing national and global reach, we established a division – LEAD.NYC – with a dedicated focus to ministry in Greater New York City. Under the leadership of Adam Durso, LEAD.NYC focuses on engaging and equipping NYC-area pastors, marketplace, and ministry leaders for the spiritual and social flourishing of the city.
