Pastoring a church has its own unique challenges, but what if your church is right next to one of the largest Air Force bases in the country, McGuire Air Force Base? Imagine for a moment that a military family or single person is looking to join your church, knowing they cannot stay longer than 3 years. What does ministry look like when 70% of your church turns over every two to three years?
Meet Brian Fisher, Senior Pastor, New Life Assembly Wrightstown, NJ.
Brian has been pastoring New Life Assembly since 2009, and has gained tremendous favor with several leaders at the base by developing a family life approach that ministers to the entire military family. His mission is to train congregants to serve those who serve through highly organized ministry teams that focus on the needs families and their children, singles, and the military community at large.
Over the last five years, New Life Assembly has seen over 350 members move to locations around the world, taking God’s message of love and redemption with them on their deployments.
McGuire Air Force Base is home to over 12,000 people, who need to connect to a community. The ministry teams at New Life build these connections each week with a measure of compassion that is evident when you meet them.
Pastor Brian’s passion is people and training disciples to serve this unique community. Over the next five years, the vision of New Life is to reach over 1,000 soldiers and airman, expand their counseling resources for those struggling with PTSD, while continuing to serve this community in practical ways that have a positive impact on their lives.
New Life Assembly has a Kingdom mindset, which is evident by the fruit of their ministry.
Thank you Pastor Brian for being an example of what it means to serve those who serve.
