Position Description

Who are we??

With origins that can be traced back to almost twenty years, New Life Community Church is a non-denominational fellowship of Christ-seekers who want to be a safe harbor for those who are seeking a relationship with Jesus. We also want to “keep it very plain and simple” – love God and love people – because God is into loving people. We are imperfect people striving to become more Christ-like, not just on Sundays, but in the way we live our lives every day. We want to be relevant, down-to-earth and real by connecting to people and the community.
We feel like God has positioned us to reach the un-churched and the de-churched in the Clarenville area. Our desire is to encourage all to attain an accurate revelation of who they are in Jesus Christ – that in Jesus Christ we are: Complete, Accepted, Secure and Significant. At New Life Community Church there is no judgement but acceptance and encouragement that we all step into purpose and destiny by becoming all that God calls us to be.
