A Message From Pastor Rich

Dear New Lifer,

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving. Truly, we have much to be thankful for!

I also pray that this letter finds you in joyful and wondrous anticipation this Advent season.

In our early days, we sent out leaders to form New Life church plants in NYC. As we saw the need to serve the poor and immigrant communities in our neighborhood, we sent out leaders to local parks to provide medical services. Throughout our history as a church, we have sent leaders throughout our city to form small groups for the sake of connection and discipleship. Every year—through a commissioning service—we send our congregation to their places of work to be the presence of Jesus, working for the shalom of the city.

At New Life, we must continue to hold onto this ancient calling. Our responsiveness to this calling from Jesus will determine the short term and long term impact of our church in our city, as well as our own personal life in God.

To that end, this Christmas Offering is for the purpose of helping us continue this “Season of Sending.”

God has entrusted our New Life community with three large missional components: 1. Our Local Church, 2. New Life CDC, 3. Emotionally Healthy Discipleship.

In each of these areas, we are looking to take the next step of being sent on mission. This Christmas offering positions us to do just that.

This year’s goal is to reach $500,000 by December 31, 2018. All donations made after Thanksgiving will go towards this Christmas Offering.

Please review this page for more about our vision and ways to give. Then, pray and ask God how you are to participate. The potential impact on thousands of lives is very exciting.

In prayer and partnership,

Pastor Rich

Emotionally Healthy Discipleship

As part of our contribution to the global church, we will strengthen our capacity to support our partner churches with Emotionally Healthy Discipleship content by:

Expanding our emotionallyhealthy.org website to give us the ability to send point leaders in the 25 countries where we are active.

Translating our emotionallyhealthy.org website into Spanish.

Publishing our Emotionally Healthy Spirituality course in the Philippines, sending Rick and Jiji Harner, current New Life Staff in the Philippines, into a greater national ministry role as point leaders for EHD.

New Life CDC

Under our community development arm, our people are being sent to those on the margins. We are looking to deepen these efforts by:

Positioning New Life CDC programs for expansion by creating the Director of Development role. It is time to have senior leadership whose focus is to secure more funding from private foundations for greater missional impact.

Strengthening our Food and Clothing Pantry by hiring a manager. This will help us ensure that we are offering high quality service to those who are vulnerable and often overlooked in society.

New Life Fellowship

At New Life Fellowship, we will send new missional neighborhood groups to reach unchurched people for Jesus.

Our hope is that God would open the door for us to proclaim the gospel as we secure various spaces to meet people in their local neighborhoods through programs like Alpha and after school support.

We want to prudently prepare ourselves with financial resources for the exciting next phase of multiplication. These resources will be stored away in a “Preparation Fund” to help us seize opportunities as God presents them to us.
