In 1934 a group of born-again ladies, members of the Italian Christian Church at 167th Street and Intervale Avenue, under the spiritual leadership of Pastor Silvio Margadonna, began holding home prayer meetings, seeking God's guidance for the establishment of a church in the Van Nest area. Their outreach began with door-to-door witnessing. Within a short period of time, a Friday night prayer meeting was established and space was rented at 1722 Adams Street, Bronx, New York.
