Ministry Philosophy

New Life Corrections Ministry exists to serve as a catalyst in enlisting, training and supporting believers from local churches to reach out to people behind bars with the transforming power of the gospel and practical expressions of God's love.

"Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as God is making His appeal through us: We urge you on Christ's behalf, be reconciled to God!" ~ 2 Corinthians 5:18-20


The NLC Advisory Council, consisting of volunteers in institutions where ministry is currently taking place, helps bring unity to the local correctional ministry, as an answer to our Lord’s prayer in John 17.

NLC is busy encouraging and equipping volunteers through Fellowship & Training Meetings, sharing ministry opportunities, needs, and prayer requests via our newsletter and recognizing and recruiting more volunteers.
