Leadership Team

New Life has a fairly unique leadership arrangement. First and foremost, we believe that every follower of Jesus IS the Church and has a role to play in an organized, local church body. Because of this, we strive to avoid an "Us"/"You" mentality; It isn't Leadership and Congregation or staff and volunteers.

We are all just "THE Church". 

At New Life, we practice elder leadership. This means that we trust a group of equals to perform their role as leaders, and to do it well.

We also have Co-Pastors; each contributing different strengths, experiences,

and perspectives as they serve the church and speak God's Word.
