The respective research focuses on Haitian Christian leaders’, particularly Millennials’, perception of commitment to community service in the metro New York City area in their churches’ neighborhood. Prior to this present study, Haitian Christian leaders’ perception commitment to community service in their churches’ neighborhoods were unknown. Therefore, this present research created a measuring tool – “Rubric for Evaluating Commitment to Community Service” (RECCS) to assess Haitian Christian leaders’ perception commitment to community service. The present research author interviewed three leaders (senior pastors and two youth leaders) from five different churches totaling fifteen participants to determine their level of commitment to community service. Afterward, the present research author did a second interview with senior pastors of each church and searched for indicators of common traits/factors that three highest and the two lowest scoring churches had in common. The present research author discovered that the level of commitment to community service differ among the five churches and between senior pastors and their youth leaders. In addition, the research found that there were no common trait/factors among the highest scoring churches, but there was one trait in common among the lowest scoring churches. Despite this, that trait/factor could not yield a conclusion making the research results be inconclusive. Lastly, the present research author offered ministry recommendations to future research and the Haitian church community.
