Metro New York/North Jersey Central Asian Outreach


“Sifting Weeks” are a huge part of the day-to-day ministry we do. There are hundreds of thousands of Muslims in our area, many of whom are already searching and wondering about spiritual things. Your team will help us do the work of finding these People of Peace! That being said, this trip will be very heavy in prayer and personal evangelism. The only way to find People of Peace is to share Christ with people.

This year we will be focusing our efforts in Northern New Jersey. Your team members will engage people in the communities, learn about them, offer to pray for them, seek to share the Gospel with them, then ask them if they are willing to meet together again with their family/friends to hear more. We believe new groups of people studying about Jesus together can start as a result of our Sifting Weeks! Our prayer is that you would also gain something during this trip that you can return home with to be more effective in your own ministry.

Hotels are probably the best option for a place to stay in our area. Please make sure the number of people per room matches up to what you’re planning on (some rooms only hold 2 people or have fees for more than 2 people). For a hotel near where we’ll be working, with free breakfast and free parking, expect somewhere around $60-$75/person per night, assuming the people on your team are okay with sharing a room. 

Here are some hotels in or near Clifton, NJ. If you find a better rate, or choose to make other arrangements, please run it by us first before booking. 

  • Home2 Suites by Hilton Wayne (350 US-46, Wayne, NJ 07470
  • La Quinta Inn & Suites (265 Rte 3 East, Clifton, NJ 07014)
  • Comfort Inn Paramus (50 N Rte 17, Paramus, NJ, 07652)
  • Howard Johnson (680 NJ-3 West, Clifton, NJ 07012)
  • Holiday Inn Express Meadowlands100 (Paterson Plank Road, Carlstadt, NJ 07072)

There is public transportation in our area, but for the purposes of this trip, we highly suggest renting a vehicle. Using services like Uber and Lyft would also work and is easy to do, but will most likely be more expensive in the end, depending on where you are staying.

We do recommend smaller vehicles (for ease of parallel parking!). When we did a rough estimate with the company listed below it came out to be basically the same cost ($1,000 for 7 days) to do one 12-passenger van OR two 7-passenger minivans.

  • Enterprise (1316 Main Ave, Clifton, NJ 07011)

We strongly encourage lunch/dinner to be eaten at local ethnic restaurants. Plan for a high estimate of $30-$50/day per person for food, and you should be good to go.
