United Evangelic Leadership & Christian Counselors Associations Inc. was established by the gifts and love of Christ, placing the impact of worship, wisdom, counselors, lay-workers, and leadership up front so that others who will or have attended our programs, shall truly see the transformation within themselves, love ones, co-workers, family and even in the community.
Since the first day of opening the doors in November 12, 1999, in order to provide not only communication to those was incarcerated, but also given them the method and the tools to work on changing their lives, while truly mentoring others. We blessed to name this program: "New Life C.O.M".. Yes we was small in numbers, but was full to the max spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically.
The call had came, and we answered with love and grace, for we knew that no matter what take place, it was truly important for us to be open minded, compassionate, humble. All that has come together, we was prepared to answer that important call from God, and be able to truly help others obtain a strong, productive, and spiritual relationship with the Lord.
Since the first day the doors was open, we begin to get out pour of letters, calls, and even invites. We begin to see certain changes took place, different churches inviting us to come forth and train their ministers, youth programs, county jail and prison begin to see the differences in certain individuals in prison become more aware, more understanding, and have the ability to forgive.
As we expressed back in 1999, we continue to express the same concept, values, core impact, and faith. As servants of the most high, we know that when ever God touch someone and that person truly have the desire to change, to help others, to share the word of God, you can see the empowerment of that amazing love touching others one by one, two by two and more to come.
The ministry "News Life Christian Outreach Ministry (NLCOM) became a non for profit (church, ministry etc.). Our designation as a non profit ministry, we accepted the calling on many different levels, which also allowed us to work closely with other ministries, programs, and organizations to ensure that each individual, each community, each family have the opportunity to seek the truth, and allow themselves the joy of sharing the word of God.
There was little doubt that this was a leap of faith, with the love of God, the wisdom of the Holy Ghost, and the teaching of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, we was prepared and able, like solider ready for war.
At its core, the foundation was formed to minister to those who are incarcerated, as well as those who are now being release from prison. What we begin to see more, is that while incarcerated they are allowing certain aspect about faith come into focus, and they know God is real, but it is as if the moment they realize they have freedom, no more bars, no officers watching, no lights out, they begin to slow step back from God, and begin to obtain the things they felt they lost from the past.
We pray about it, and we continue to move forward, just as months went by, we begin to obtain phone calls and emails asking for us to come forth and speak at a few programs. I say without doubt, that God plans never fail, it never stop, man on the other hand, when things seem to not working, they begin to look for answer some where else.
Within time God place the next amazing change when the vision begin to focus on the community, ministering to others as well as helping them to obtain the things that they needed. We begin to host night church services, BBQ Sunday Services, Inspiring Minds Video Church and a few others things that allowed many individuals within the community become a strong part of the ministry. NLCOM became one of the main resources and a fellowship that prayed for the hurting; the downtrodden; restore the fallen; to empower and to effect change within the hearts of every believer, and for those who are tired of the religious mindset within this region.
New Life C.O.M is a dynamic progressive ministry:
In sanctioned by God and unhindered by man-made philosophies or traditional religious practices. Our primary theme is "God is our Inspiration - Changing Lives is our Calling - Serving the Lord is our Passion". We've been given a specific mandate by God to advance His kingdom. The message of Jesus Christ is about advancing the kingdom of God.
-- New Life C.O.M is a dedicated non-denominational and independent faith, with a strong connections within the Apostolic Ministry, Evangelic Foundation, and AME Principles, for we believe that wisdom is not held by the name of the church, but it planted by the seed of Christ, and when that seed begin to grow it is not looking who, where, when, why, or what, but it is fighting daily to make sure it unleash the fruit that is needed so others can live too.
-- Our platform is chosen by God, not by man, for we are far from confusion, the truth of the ministry consists of multi-racial and multi-cultural fellowship, ministers, directors, leaders, and partners who love the Lord. God has mandated that we serve as a covering for those without a church home, to be effective within the community, to change the lives of those who come forth and seek the truth. The leadership team is governed by the U.E.C.A (United Evangelic Leadership & Christian Counseling Associations and is committed to teaching sound biblical doctrine.
Are leadership focused on preaching and teaching the "apostolic vision". In 2007 the vision of the ministry was articulated to the leaders, partners, and fellowship as the concept of the Five-fold Ministry Ascension Gifts was taught. The "Hand of God," which incorporates all five-fold Ministry Gifts are essential to the fullness of God being revealed. Ephesians 4:11-13 articulates God's ministry gifts to His church:
And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry; for the edifying of the body of Christ; Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ;
Jesus Christ is the Head and we are members of His Body. As God's ambassadors, we are called to exhibit the qualities (very nature) of the Kingdom of God. We are committed to teaching and preaching the Word of God with a simple approach. The primary job of the leadership team is that of equipping the saints for the work of the ministry. It is well known that our Senior Bishop has obtained an understanding that the Lord is interested in birthing, equipping and preparing leaders and lay-persons for the work of the ministry.
January 2011 is marked as a significant period for New Life C.O.M & the founder Bishop T. Smith. The foundation was appointed as a outreach ministry, within the Ministerial Alliances of Apostolic Foundation, and confirmed through validation within the Evangelic Purpose and Preaching ministry. The validations also placed a deeper call into ministry by allowing Bishop Smith to travel to different cities, churches, programs, and organizations sharing the word of God through a very remarkable point in his life which he has now called "The Journey - 1 Life Gone, 1 Life Found"......
The leadership team received apostolic accreditation, as well as a spiritual platform within Evangelic Movement as Leaders & officers, given their ministerial charge through "the laying on of hands."
