MYNYC Story: Stretch Dean ’87 (Washington D.C.)

Last spring UCNYI launched the “MYNYC” campaign, which represented an effort to tell the story of Nazarene Youth Conference (International Institute, WYC, etc.) in a new way–as a one, stitched-together movement. We believe that when the story of NYC is seen and heard in this light, it reads as a long and rich testimony to the power of gathering and growing together. Play the video below to hear from Stretch Dean, Eastern Field Youth Coordinator and Lead Pastor at Wollaston Church of the Nazarene, who attended NYC in 1987.
