James & Kimonie Dearmond
James and Kimonie are originally from south Louisiana. In 2000, they helped plant a church in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. After returning to the US, they knew God was calling them to the relational ministry they had experienced with Pastor Rick and Michelle. So they joined the vision of New Life and planted a campus in Heber Springs. They have four sons—Philip, Hayden, Nathan, and Jonathan—and are continually thankful that God chose their family to live in Heber Springs and be a part of the vision God gave New Life Church!
