New Life Ministries transforms lives through compassionately communicating God's truth and connecting people into redemptive relationships. Family, friends, and churches want to help but are not always equipped to care for those dealing with problems like addiction, pornography, infidelity, anxiety, anger, fear, depression, and hurts from the past. We combine a deep commitment to biblical truth with the best in psychological knowledge. We firmly believe that applying proven techniques for emotional, physical, and spiritual health is in accordance with God's call to live in wholeness and redemptive relationships. And, we're not afraid to share our own struggles, because we're all on this journey together.
