Christina Matcham is the Creative & Dance Director of Habitation NYC. Christina’s desire is to see creatives return to a place of co-laboring with Holy Spirit, and see the arts return to a place where individuals can encounter the very nature of God. She believes that the arts were never meant to be separated from God, but something to be done with Him; and that when done with Him, His loving mercy can be made manifest to bring healing, miracles, deliverance, transformation and so much more!
She longs to see creatives re-aligned to First-love, true identity, and creative discovery with the Father, and raised up on a foundation of worship, prayer, and the Word to shift culture.
Christina has chosen to lay down her life to establish a home for God to dwell in the midst of the arts again. Branded on her heart is Psalm 132: 4-5: “I will not give sleep to my eyes or slumber to my eyelids, until I find a place for the Lord, A dwelling place for the Mighty One of Jacob.”
Dean of Students
Launch School of Ministry
Alan Hsu is the Dean of Students at Launch School of Ministry, Habitation NYC’s very own equipping school. He desires to see all believers growing in intimacy with Jesus, being rooted in their identity as sons, and walking in their God-given authority and power to revive and reform their respective spheres of influence.
Alan loves to see people getting saved, healed, delivered and awakened to/activated in their calling through the prophetic. One of the cries of his heart is to see the body of Christ walking in unity, shining brightly in the midst of increasing darkness, and establishing the culture of the kingdom, on earth as it is in heaven.
Some of his favorite scriptures include John 15, Romans 8 and Psalm 1.
Ihra Gomez is the Mission’s Director of Habitation NYC. Born and raised in the Philippines, Ihra’s heart is to see U N I T Y across the body of Christ and across the nations of the world!
Her heart is to see the body of Christ - from college campus ministries to local churches - to come together! Ihra longs to see Jesus’ prayer into fruition that “they may all be one” just as He and the Father are one. She believes that when the Church comes together, revival will flood the cities and salvation fill the streets!
Ihra’s heart is to see the nations come together as one. She desires for every nation, tribe, people, and tongue to know that they belong to the family of God and they are invited to sit at the Lord’s ever-expanding banquet table to celebrate together! She believes that if people simply ate a meal together, fear and prejudice would crumble because people will actually get to know each other and build genuine love and care for one another!
Written in her heart is Ephesians 3:17-20, “…so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God…”
Ihra believes in her whole heart that since He is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, she can’t settle for anything less than the whole world.
