Training

In Ephesians 4, Paul teaches that spiritually gifted leaders in the church are, “to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ.” To that end, we offer several training opportunities at New Life:

Discipleship Classes

Each Sunday morning during our regular schedule, we offer discipleship programming for adults, youth, children, and preschoolers in The Preserve (Suite 110). Our goal is to help people of all ages understand and apply God’s Word to their lives. You can click on the following links to learn more about our Adult and NextGen Ministries.

Exploring Pastoral Ministry

If you are considering pastoral ministry (either as a vocation or as a lay elder), Pastor Allen leads a discussion group twice per month each academic year to introduce you to pastoral ministry and help equip you with tools to serve the church. We discuss great books on calling, the local church, and Christian leadership. Exploring Pastoral Ministry is open to any man who is a member or is pursuing membership at New Life. Contact us for more information!
