We are New Life.
One church, many locations.
One family, many backgrounds.
One message, many stories.
But one cross, one gospel, and one God.
John and Christine Palmieri — Pastor
Pastor John Palmieri made a decision to follow Christ at the young age of seventeen and immediately knew that God was calling him to be on mission in pastoral ministry. He studied and graduated from the Moody Bible Institute ('85) and in 2006 he completed his Master's Degree in Spiritual Formation and Discipleship at the Moody Theological Seminary. In the spring, 2012, he graduated from Bakke Graduate University with a DMIN (Doctor of Ministry) in Transformational Leadership for the Global City. Pastor John has over 25 years experience working in both the blue collar and corporate marketplace. Over the last twenty-five years Pastor John has served in various ministry leadership positions, including the pastorate, missions, church planting, live-in discipleship & job training, youth ministry and counseling. Frequently, Pastor John speaks at various church retreats and ministry conferences. He and his wife Christine have three children, Caleb, Hannah and Abbey, and together they are committed to fulfilling God's Purposes in their generation.
