Some of Jesus’ last words were the command to “Go and make disciples of all nations.” New Life prays for opportunities to tell others of the grace and mercy found in Christ, while raising up disciples who long to know and obey the truth to which they’ve been called.
Missions work occurs anywhere that God’s people are going and making disciples. This includes our own backyard in the greater Cedar Rapids metro, to nations across the globe. Internationally, New Life has partnered with Christian leaders in some of the most unreached areas of the world where Christianity is discouraged, and believers are persecuted. We have provided financial support to train new and existing pastors, who have planted hundreds of new churches and seen thousands of men and women accept Christ. New Life pastors and members have traveled overseas yearly to help with these efforts. New Life also has also supported missions efforts in Costa Rica, Mexico, Ukraine, and West Africa.
Since 2018, God has helped New Life give more than $575,000 to support missions, primarily through annual fall giving campaigns. (Updated December 2022)
