We're Better Together

We believe that relationship is key to life, work and worship.  We have designed our ministries around a team concept that values excellence and placing people where they are gifted.  We have such an important mission and such a simple strategy that we don't leave it to chance or to one person to get it all done.  Newlife is about community, caring and leading others into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ and that happens best in the context of real relationships.  That's why we embrace teams.
