Are you coming for the first time?

We know that showing up to a new place for the first time can be intimidating. At New Life Community Church it’s our desire that you feel right at home from the moment you pull into the parking lot! As a first-time guest, you are VIP to us so we'll be there with you every step of the way!


What about my children?

Our Kids Zone is available for children birth through sixth grade at every service. The care and spiritual growth of every child is our highest priority and our passion is to create fun, Bible-driven, interactive lessons especially designed for your kids!

What should I wear?

At New Life Community Church, there's no dress code and no judgement. Some show up in suits or dresses, and others wear t-shirts and jeans. We want you to wear whatever makes you feel comfortable!

Meet Our Pastor

Pastor Jason Peña

Pastor Jason Peña grew up and currently resides in the Hobart area. Upon graduation from high school, he studied criminal justice at Indiana University Northwest. Roughly two years into the program, God saw fit to call him into pastoral ministry. Knowing he needed training, this led Jason to transfer to Moody Bible Institute, where he received his undergraduate degree in Biblical Studies in 2015. After one year at North Park Theological Seminary, he returned to Moody Theological Seminary, where he recently earned his Master of Divinity in 2020. Pastor Jason wants everyone to know and accept the love of Christ and embrace the lifelong journey of following and growing up in the ways of Christ.
