We are New Life.
One church, many locations.
One family, many backgrounds.
One message, many stories.
But one cross, one gospel, and one God.
Joshua and Nancy Holec — Pastor
Pastor Joshua Holec has been serving with New Life for over 17 years. He fell in love with Jesus here, met his wife here and received his call to the pastorate here. He graduated from the Moody Bible Institute in 2005 with a major in Pastoral Studies. As a child he spent a lot of time in Berwyn, attending grade school and graduated from high school here. Joshua and his wife Nancy, also a Moody graduate, live just a few blocks from the church building with their young children and have a heart for unlocking the untapped potential in others to live all out for Jesus Christ. Nothing gives them more joy than seeing others released into their full impact in Christ.
Roger Cortez — Location Elder
Roger Cortez came to know Jesus at the age of 15. He started serving at New Life since 1998. For almost 20 years, he and his wife Martha have served in many different areas of ministry including worship, small groups, discipleship and KidZone. Roger and Martha have been married for over 30 years and have two grown children and four grandchildren. Their passion is to mentor and disciple people and guide them through their spiritual walk. They have assisted in planting several New Life locations, including New Life Little Village, New Life Montgomery and New Life Berwyn where Roger serves as location elder.
