Knowing they were called into full time ministry, Pastors Brad and Jean felt God lead them to RHEMA Bible Training Center in Tulsa, OK in 1989. Pastor Brad went to school there and was trained for the ministry. While he was attending school, Pastor Jean worked at Kenneth Hagin Ministries. With pastoring in their hearts, God called them back to New Richmond in 1994.
They knew that starting a church was always in God's plan for them. After serving and pastoring in other churches, they felt called to start New Life Family Church in 1997. As they continue in their calling, they are believing God to use New Life Family Church to preach the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ in real and relevant ways to New Richmond and its surrounding communities.
