Urgent Projects


Our first thought regarding poverty is lacking material possessions.  

Poverty's root cause is relational.

Broken relationships with God, self, others and creation.  

"the goal is to restore people to experiencing humanness in the way that God intended." Excerpt From: "When Helping Hurts."  Moody Publishers, 2012


Pastor Felix & Kim Russo, Missionaries to the inner city of Hamilton, Ohio.

Hope in Action

"The mission cared for me and showed me love after my son was murdered "-Burdell K.

Bag Hunger Campaign

Companies, organizations, churches and groups commit to fill a brown grocery bag with non-perishable groceries.  

NEW LIFE MISSION will provide the bag and a list of needed food items.  

Someone from the mission will drop off grocery bags then in about 30 days we will pick up the filled grocery bags.  


"Sometimes this is the only meal I have during the day"-Wayne E.

Hunger isn't seasonal, so join our year-round food drive, ​BAG HUNGER. Monthly, fill one or two groceries bags and help us Bag Hunger.
