- About Us
Upper Room Ministries was founded around a kitchen table, which then progressed to a house basement in Deer Park. As the work rapidly grew, the need for a bigger venue became necessary, and by the Lord’s faithful hand, Upper Room moved into its first sanctuary in 1980, where Bishop Anthony D’Onofrio began declaring that Long Island will become the Lord’s Island.
Upper Room has been the forerunner in bringing food, clothing, and prayer to all who need a helping hand. This burden for the lost and hurting is evident in the many outreaches to the community and evident in our Mercy House food pantry. As one of the largest in the tri state area, this mega church spans over 16 acres, houses 2 sanctuaries and seats 4,000. Included on the premises are a family life center, a full gymnasium and a Christian School that serves Kindergarten to 12th grade, and has served as such for the past 3 decades.
