The Upstate NY Ministry Network was founded in 2016 by Donna Hansen Munafo and Bob Lucido. They began holding quarterly fellowships for pastors and ministry leaders in an effort to bring UNITY and to connect the Body of Christ.
The meetings were well attended, and the facebook group grew rapidly. Today the page has over 1,000 members. Bob parted in 2017 to focus on his music ministry. Soon after, Donna aligned with Pastor PJ Murray, and became a 501c3 organization under "Accelerator Ministries".
