New Life Christian Church
On October 2, 2005 the first service was held in rented space in the Seventh Day Adventist Church building. New Life began with about 20 full-time members and 20 seasonal members. Matt Malott has been the minister of the church since its inception and continues in that position.
In the summer of 2006, nine acres of ground on CR 462 near Wildwood was purchased with the intent of it becoming a permanent church location. Plans for a worship center that would seat 300 was presented to the congregation and construction began in January 2008. The first service in the new worship center was held on July 27, 2008.
During the fall of 2012, Hugh Wicks of Lakeside Park, Kentucky was added to the staff to oversee the music and worship elements of the church.
As the church continued to increase in size, it became evident that more space would be necessary for continued growth. In the fall of 2015 an expansion program was presented to the congregation that featured a new 500-seat auditorium, a suite of church offices and the remodel of the existing building to accommodate educational and fellowship activities. The church overwhelmingly approved the plan. Groundbreaking for the project was held on April 10, 2016, and the first service in the new building was held on September 17, 2017.
While we are grateful for God's blessings in the past, we believe that NLCC's greatest days are yet ahead!
