About New Life Church:

We are most passionate about families who are far from God and who posses little to no church background. We currently average 600-750 on a weekend between three services. Successful staff hires here have a positive, can-do spirit and are comfortable building new teams of volunteers and developing future leaders. We are praying for God to send us workers for the harvest of the SF Bay Area, and we are dreaming to plant future campuses, which all starts with staff who know how to recruit and build-up teams.
