From our very beginning, New Life has supported Christ’s Kingdom work in our area and around the world. Many of our own members have been involved in cross-cultural ministry through short-term projects and by long-term missionary service. We support Christian workers primarily in the Mediterranean region and Europe.
Ministries that New Life currently supports in our own region include:
Bethany Christian Services
Christ the King Brazilian Church Plant
Eastern PA Presbytery Church Planting
Many of our members are personally involved in significant ministries in their daily lives.
ESL Ministry in Northeast Philadelphia.
In partnership with Northeast Community Church, we provide almost half of the staff that weekly teaches English as a second language to immigrants in that part of the city. This provides practical aid to help immigrants find jobs and function in our society, as well as a witness to the gospel of Jesus Christ.
New Life has a special relationship with a number of word and deed ministries that reach out to underserved populations both in our region and globally. Besides providing them opportunities to share their vision with us, we also take a significant annual offering the week before Easter to support them financially. We also have individuals and groups who visit and serve with these ministries as there is opportunity.
