Step into the heartwarming history of St. Paul's House!
In 1943, Rev. J.J.D. Hall and Creighton Dunlap embarked on a journey that led them to a brownstone tenement house in Hell’s Kitchen. United by their admiration for the ministry of the Apostle Paul and their Episcopal roots, they named it St. Paul's House.
Rev. Hall, known as the "Bishop of Wall Street" for his fiery street preaching, and co-founder Creighton Dunlap, a former real estate agent turned devoted follower, shared a commitment to Christ and pioneered the U.S.'s first sermon telephone ministry in 1939.
Fast forward to today, and St. Paul's House is a vibrant, non-denominational Christian community. Our mission? To spread Christ’s love locally in NYC and globally through food and community. From our soup kitchen to neighborhood pantry, youth initiatives, and beyond, we're here to support the holistic needs of our neighbors.
At SPH NYC, we also nurture young Christian leaders through our outreach leadership training program. For 80 years, we've educated and trained countless young adults preparing for a life enriched with loving neighbors in love and truth.
Our iconic SPH NYC cross stands tall on New York's Westside, capturing the attention of tourists, newspapers, and even the big screen. It's not just a symbol; it's a beacon of hope that continues to shine into the night, spreading its message far and wide.
