WHO WE ARE
New Life Fellowship is a church in the exceptionally diverse neighborhood of Elmhurst, Queens with a community impact through its Community Development Corporation, and a global impact through the wider Emotionally Healthy Spirituality movement. Our mission as a church is to lead people to a deep, personal relationship with Jesus, and we do that with a unique flavor as expressed in our 5 Ms:
1. Monastic: Slowing down to be with God in the midst of a fast-paced and busy city. We draw deeply from the contemplative and monastic traditions.
We strive to create a culture on our staff team of fun, autonomy, and integrity, where people have the freedom to experiment, make mistakes, learn, and grow in both their inner life (their journey with God) and their outer life (their skills and role in the organization).
Leadership Residency Program
The New Life Fellowship Leadership Residency provides opportunities where you will receive personal spiritual formation, and leadership development, to lead people to a deep, personal relationship with Jesus Christ. The end goal of the program is to train and develop “emerging 5M leaders” in soul and role, through our formation pathway (connect. grow. serve), and release them to steward their life and gifts in one of the New Life congregations. The New Life Leadership Residency is designed to give participants local church ministry experience, as well as a glimpse into the life of someone in vocational ministry. Participants will gain valuable experience while working alongside New Life staff members.
