Vinny & Nicole Restivo, Chosen Youth Ministries (Bronx, NYC)

Chosen Youth Ministries

Chosen Youth Ministries is the youth ministry based out of Christian Assembly of the Bronx. Our church is located just a few blocks from Fordham University, the Bronx Zoo and historic Arthur Ave. Our youth group, like our church and like our neighborhood, is diverse in ethnicity, culture and walks of life, but our hearts are joined in a strong desire for community – the common unity found through the Holy Spirit.

Our purpose and vision for the ministry is to reach the young people in our community (both inside and outside of the church family) with the transforming power of the love of Jesus and thereby extending our family. We love when our kids refer to Chosen as their home or their family.

A Place Called Home – We continue to seek God for avenues of opportunity to offer physical, emotional and spiritual support and healing that so many young people need. (1 Peter 2:9, Isaiah 56:7-8)

For the past 17 years we’ve been in pursuit of a distinct spirituality that will make Jesus clearly visible to the world.
