Sam and Meghan Gryzwa's Mission

Our mission is to fulfill the Great Commission through the power of the Holy Spirit, building spiritual movements everywhere so that everyone knows someone who truly follows Jesus.

Our Ministry

Here’s a few ways we carry out our mission and vision on the ground:

  • Teaching students how to reach their peers with the Gospel and raise up disciples of their own
  • Evangelistic conversations with students seeking to explore faith and hear about Jesus for the first time
  • Campus Bible studies
  • One on one or small group discipleship
  • Pioneering a Gospel presence on campuses across Manhattan & The Bronx where none exists
  • Short and Long-Term Mission Trips


Manhattan schools represent some of the most competitive colleges and universities in the country, but underneath the veneer of social progress and personal achievement New York also represents one of the most tumultuous, challenging environments for Christianity. The decisions students make about life-styles, careers, relationships, and beliefs during their time in college can set the trajectory for the rest of their lives. 

On different campuses, we were once students just like them.

God used other Christian students and Cru staff to transform our faith and change the trajectory of our lives. Sadly, the majority of students in NYC today will enter and leave college without meeting another Christian, let alone hearing about the grace of God and a personal relationship with Jesus. We’re trusting God for movements of NYC students passionate about loving Jesus and committed to making disciples who will make disciples – so that one day everyone will know someone who truly follows Jesus.

On August 26, 2021, IL Governor J.B. Pritzker issued an Executive Order mandating that masks be worn at all indoor gatherings. Although churches are exempt from the Executive Order, out of respect for governing authorities, Parkview has continued to ask staff, leaders, volunteers, and those attending Sunday gatherings to wear a mask while indoors. We are grateful for our people’s understanding and willingness to do so. The Governor recently indicated that his Executive Order will be rescinded on Monday, February 28th making masks no longer required in most indoor settings. In anticipation of that, on Sunday, February 27th Parkview will return to a “mask optional” policy.

While the mask policy has once again shifted, our commitment to your health and wellbeing has not. We remain dedicated to thoroughly cleaning our public spaces before and after our gatherings. Masks and hand sanitizer are still readily available to those who want them.

Navigating these difficult days has not always been clear or easy. Whatever your perspective on current realities, as fellow Christians, let us allow kindness, grace and compassion characterize our interaction and relationships. In the words of the Apostle Paul, “Let us be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.”

I look forward to being with you on Sundays.
Grace and Peace,
Ray S. Kollbocker
Lead Pastor
