Missions

“A church is first a family, next an organization, and finally an army.” 

Reverend Scott (“Rev”) Jackson

Spreading the Good News!

Our mission at Newlife is to see as many people reached for the Kingdom of God as we can. While the classic definition of Christian missions is proclaiming the Gospel message outside of one’s own culture, NLG actively participates in and financially supports missions within our own community, nationally, and abroad. While church planting is at the forefront of our mission work, we believe that God is using multipurpose ministries all around us. We want to be a part of supporting our neighbors in need as well as Spreading the Good News!

The Loco Drive-In

One of the area’s most unique entertainment venues, with the world’s first LED video board for movie viewing, now serves as the first Satellite Campus for NLG in Loudon, Tennessee.

Fostering Hope TN

The organization was created to help children in the foster care system feel a sense of hope and self worth.

Nick and Rachel

Nick and Rachel are serving in the Middle East, pursuing church planting amongst the unreached. They are focused on media ministry, outreach with Syrian refugees, and leading a field hub that sees 10-15 new workers brought into the region each year. They are passionate about intercessory prayer, team dynamics, and are currently undefeated in Spikeball. Though they have never lived in Knoxville, it always feels like home.

Restoration House

The Restoration House (TRH) helps restore single mothers and their children back to God’s good intent for their lives. Through supportive transitional housing, ally teams, family advocacy, and youth development, TRH walks alongside low-income single-parent families, helping them break harmful cycles and regain hope and a future.

Vital Families

We empower families to fulfill that holy purpose by developing three habits which produce deep meaning in their lives and bright hope for their communities.

The three habits are:

to love deeply

to build leaders

to strengthen communities

To instill these habits in our families, we surround them with authentic friendships, wise coaches, and strategic resources.

Young Life

Young Life doesn’t start with a program. It starts with adults who are concerned enough about kids to go to them, on their turf and in their culture, building bridges of authentic friendship. These relationships don’t happen overnight — they take time, patience, trust and consistency.
