About My Family

Hi, I am Alonza Lewis Jr. I grew up in Birmingham, Ala. I attended Auburn University at Montgomery (AUM), where I majored in psychology.

While I was attending AUM, I got very involved in the Baptist Collegiate Ministry (BCM). There God really showed me His heart for the nations and then grew me as a person who loves to go on mission for Him.

During college, I had the privilege of spending some Christmas and spring breaks in New York City. During those breaks and other short-term trips in North America, I sensed God calling me to New York City. I have a huge heart for New Yorkers, and my heart hurts when I see the lostness in the city. I am so excited to be able to get there and meet people where they are and show them the love of Christ.

If you have any questions feel free to email me at

About My Church Plant

I will be primarily working the North American Mission Board (NAMB) as a church planting team member at One Community Church in Hell's Kitchen, Manhattan. I will have a chance to fill many different roles in the church, but my main role will be community outreach. Once the church grows, I plan on being part of the youth ministry.

NAMB Church Planting

Millions in North America are in desperate need of hope. Ultimately, the only hope that’s going to last - in this life and the next - is the hope of the gospel. North American missionaries build relationships and share this hope in their communities and beyond.

Mark 16:15 says, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation." Pray that I will be bold and do just that. Pray that I will be able to present the gospel in a way that people are able to understand and that people will be able to see Christ through me in the way I interact with them. Pray for persons of peace. Pray for me, One Community Church and the church staff. Pray for doors to be opened and that many people in New York City will come to faith.
