Therefore go and make disciples of all nations,

Baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.

MATTHEW  28:19

In this season of change and uncertainty, it is our prayer that Jesus the Christ will remain your pilot and guide as your journey through life. Amen

The Christ for the World Chapel continues to be a beacon of hope to the JFK Airport community and beyond.  In partnership with CitiMed and JFKIAT, we hosted our annual Health and Wellness Day on Tuesday, November 14 and our annual Christmas Concert was held on Saturday, December 9 - we were able to bring peace, hope and joy to all through music and songs!

Our mission is to be God's 'city on a hill' at John F. Kennedy International Airport, bearing Christ’s light, love, hope, healing and grace to the traveling public, airport employees and neighboring communities.
Matthew 5:14–16: “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good.”

A Journey Ahead

So many travel each day through the airport, whether for work or play, each have a unique journey!

We would love to hear about where you are, where you are going and also to pray for whatever your journey may be ahead.

Taking Flight

No matter the itinerary, taking flight in any adventure can be nerve racking. Whenever you face moments of uncertainty or worry, bring it God.

He can bring you comfort and peace in those moments.

Capture Every Moment 

Coming back from a trip?

Whether traveling the world or a visit down the airport corridor - Tell us all about it. We would love to know how it went and share in those moments with you

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.


When you travel, it is easy to get frustrated with delays and the other hundred things that may come up. Wouldn't it be great to bring "Peace" with us to everywhere we go?  Be a peacemaker and let God handle the rest.
