As part of the New Life Church vision to be involved in gospel renewal in the Brunswick area communities and beyond, we support a number of ministries involved in mercy, justice, and evangelism locally and globally. We support these partner ministries by uplifting them in prayer, giving financially to their work, and serving side by side with them in action. See the ministry descriptions below and click direct links (where available) to find out more about these ministries. (Note that information for some ministries is not published on the website due to persecution concerns in challenging countries.)
