Throughout 2015, everything we did was motivated by our goal to be Compelled by the Spirit of God. We knew the calling of our church was to be more aware of God’s voice leading our individual lives. As a result, God’s grace and favor overflowed into our church, and we were able to reach many people who live and work around us.
This report is the celebration of the blessings that come when we seek to do His will for our church. These numbers represent the people, marriages, families, and communities that grew stronger in their personal walk with God and in relationship with others.
Thank you for partnering with us in 2015! We are so honored to be a part of the incredible vision God has for this state. Arkansas has been forever impacted for His kingdom because of the willing and generous hearts within our church. And we pray this influence will continue in 2016 as we grow together in the Word in what we are calling the Year of the Bible.
We love you, New Life!
Pastor Rick & Michelle Bezet
