Our Leadership

“We are delighted to be a part of God’s plan to advance the Kingdom. Our focus is equipping, empowering and releasing God’s people to serve. In 1997, I accepted the call to serve as Senior Pastor of McKee Street Church of God, now New Life Church of God. God gave me a vision of a body of believers dedicated to making a difference in the lives of the city of Fort Wayne and throughout the world. What an awesome concept of the entire body being empowered to serve. Jesus gave us the model of shared ministry.

New Life is not just our name, but our purpose as world changers to help people soar. Our ministry is family focused, where everybody matters. We seek to continuously emulate God’s Word in every area of life. By faith, everyone can have the best life now and in the days to come. We believe that God has great plans for your life. The Best Is Yet To Come!”
