New Life Christian Academy

  • In 1985 the vision for New Life Christian Academy began in the hearts of the people of New Life Assembly.
  • In our first year, the school was held in the church basement.
  • Although, as the vision began to spread, it became obvious that God gave our people a heart and a mind to work.
  • During that time many worked for low wages and some even worked only for the tuition of their children.
  • Before the second year began, the school moved to its present location.
  • However, the original facility did not include the two gymnasiums or the secondary building.
  • This move was triggered by an extraordinary service one Sunday morning when God moved on the people to pay off the original church mortgage before taking on additional debt.
  • It was also interesting that the average age of the congregation was only 25-40 years old.
  • These people were just starting careers, had young children, and not particularly established financially.
  • Nevertheless, these people gave from the depths of their hearts.
  • Their sacrifices included some items that were later converted into cash.
  • Some of the gifts included weddings bands, engagement rings, precious stones, an 18 th century Hawkin rifle, a car, a camper, one 150 year old railroad watch, and an uncirculated coin collection.
  • Others took out personal loans, some gave away college funds for their children and even monies that had been set aside for vacations.
  • All were gifts above and beyond their tithes and everyone who made a commitment that morning kept their vow.
