The lead pastor, pastoral and support staff are responsible for leading our church in the mission and values of our community under the authority of the elder board.

RICH VILLODAS

LEAD PASTOR

Pastor Rich has served as the Lead Pastor of New Life since October, 2013. Prior to becoming Lead Pastor, he gave oversight to our small group ministry. Rich was born and raised in the East NY section of Brooklyn. He graduated with a BA degree in Pastoral Ministry and Theology from Nyack College. He went on to complete his Masters of Divinity from Alliance Theological Seminary. Rich enjoys reading widely, preaching and writing on contemplative spirituality, justice-related issues and on the art of preaching. He’s been married to Rosie since 2006 and they have two beautiful children, Karis and Nathan.  When Rich is not leading, preaching and writing, he is watching his beloved Mets, Knicks, and Jets play (pray for Rich!).
