Job Description

Our Story

New Life ( is a growing church in the beautiful Upper Peninsula of Michigan with a mission to reach our region for the Kingdom of God.  Escanaba New Life Assembly of God (New Life Church) was started in the 1950s and has been actively growing since then.  We partner with our community in various ways including service projects, food distribution, free community events, concerts, and supporting other local organizations that are effectively reaching their mission.   In 2019, we started building a community center with a full-size gym and large indoor playground that is nearly complete.  This will be a huge tool in reaching and mentoring people (  New Life has a large online gathering and an in-person gathering of about 400 people.
