Located in Central Brooklyn, the Church of God of East Flatbush (COGEF) is an established not-for-profit organization in New York City that has been in existence since 1970. The Church has approximately 1,500 members and serves about 2,500 through its worship services, food programs, educational facilities, community outreach and training programs. It is located in an area characterized by high mobility, increasingly large waves of immigration and working class families (many below the poverty level). COGEF membership is made up of middle to lower income families of more than 15 nationalities.
For more than three decades, COGEF has been a source of spiritual strength, guidance and encouragement to thousands of individuals, families and New York City. This ministry has a rich legacy of dynamic worship, cultivating strong families, a commitment to community development and outreach, and an outstanding record of service to the community and the Church of God nationally and internationally.
