Who We Are

It is our pleasure to introduce to you our church. A friendly, and caring family church. We are a full-gospel, multiracial, non-denominational, Holy Spirit filled, led, and Holy Bible based church. We are located at the very heart of New York City on Roosevelt Island. Roosevelt Island is part of Manhattan, sandwiched between Manhattan in the Westside, across from the western artery of the East River, and Queens in the east, across from the eastern artery of the East River. With the Bronx in the north and Brooklyn to the south. The church is nestled on the Manhattan side of the water front at 851 Main Street. A quiet and serene environment for those seeking quietude, and a place for meditative contemplation and spiritual consciousness and growth in Christ Jesus. The Island can easily be accessed by road from Long Island City, Queens by ground transportation, as in cars, buses and bikes, or by Train and by Roosevelt Island Tram or Cable Car.
The church was founded in 2003 with a mandate from God to be a witness for Christ To take the light of the gospel to the dark places of this world and shine the same on the hearts of men everywhere.
To tell the world of the love of God for man that was expressed through the Cross of Jesus Christ.
To authenticate the truth of the Word of God through the manifestation of the works of the Holy Spirit.
To demonstrate the power of God’s grace through the simplicity of the ministry of Jesus Christ.
To tell Every man everywhere that there is hope and help in Christ Jesus and that you can have a new beginning in Him. That salvation is in Christ alone. Jesus Christ is Lord of all.
To this end, we are committed to the restoration of the Apostolic Ministry, the Lord’s Commission is our battle cry and our goal is “To Raise An ARMY Of Witnesses for Christ by fostering an environment of love and brotherhood in a multiracial and multigenerational congregation where people are trained for Covenant servant leadership as fervent and ardent recruiters for this army.
We invite all seekers and lovers of truth in Christ to our mature church setting with very conservative doctrines and values, modern and current worship style and a happy church where the Holy Spirit makes all the difference.

Senior Pastor

REVEREND OLUSEGUN S. I. O. OBED (Ph.D.) Pastor Olu Obed, the president of International Christian Outreach Ministries (ICOM), and the founding and Senior Pastor of Dayspring Church, New York, was saved, by the grace of God in 1986. The same year joined the Redeemed Christian Church of God in Lagos, Nigeria, where he was discipled, trained and ordained a minister of the gospel. Pastor Obed served in various capacities, including in church planting teams in the RCCG while in Nigeria until he and his wife, Pastor Elsie Obed, relocated to the USA as pioneering pastors for the RCCG in 1991. For the next ten years Pastor Olu Obed served as a member of the RCCG North America Board of Coordinators, and continued to serve as a church planter, as well as the Coordinator in charge of New Church Planting, and Coordinator Legal and Immigration Matters. In 2003, Pastor Obed retired from the RCCG ministry to answer the call from God to come out to a different ministry. The same year, ICOM and Dayspring Church were established to pursue this new call. Pastor Obed preaches and teaches the Word of God without compromise. He strongly believes in the ministry of Reconciliation founded on love, discipling of the body of Christ to raise the next generation of Covenant-Servant-Leaders, in answer to the call of the Master, Jesus Christ, on him to raise for the Lord an Army of Witnesses. Pastor Obed and his team of faithful saints hold several Urban Crusades annually around New York City. He is available to train churches and groups in evangelism, conduct seminars on Christian Marriage, Discipleship, and Leadership Development. Reverend Obed is a graduate of the University of Jos, Nigeria where he obtained a B.Sc. in Management Studies and an MBA in Financial Management and Advanced Accounting. He holds a Ph.D. in Conflict Resolution from Trinity College of the Bible and Theological Seminary, Newburgh, Indiana. Dr. Obed (The Viceroy) can be reached at 646.391.5112; email: [email protected]
