Why I Love This Opportunity

David Santistevan

Senior Associate

God’s work in South Minnesota at NewLife Community Church is remarkable. People are being reached, and disciples are being made. We’re excited to partner with this great church to find their next Worship Pastor. The team is committed, excited, talented, and ready to move forward into a powerful new season. The best days are ahead.

About This Organization

NewLife Community launched in January 2012 as an In Step Open Network church partnering with Life Church, and Joel Stauffer is the lead and founding pastor. For the first seven years, the church met at a local high school and then moved to a local elementary school that provided more space to match the consistent growth. That same year, NewLife Community launched a building campaign to build a new church building in Owatonna. This is an exciting project that the whole church is energized by and invested in moving forward. Due to COVID-19 restrictions in the public schools, the church currently meets in a local movie theater.

Connected in schedule, mission, and heart as an In Step Open Network church, NewLife partners with Life. Church to help equip people to be fully devoted followers of Christ. Thought-provoking messages based on the Bible teaching from Life. Church Senior Pastor Craig Groeschel is delivered via video. In addition, the church is partnered to share fun and relevant teaching for kids.
