The First Impressions Team at New Life CityChurch is committed to providing a smooth, welcoming experience to you when you visit. We exist to open the door to your worship experience with us, and provide the foundation of a community environment in which you are inspired to know and follow Christ.

Researchers have said that people often decide in the first 5-7 minutes whether to return to a church they are visiting – we want people to come back to New Life CityChurch. Our First Impressions ministry gives effort and intentionality to being aware of the aspects, attitudes and information people need to feel welcomed, get connected and want to come back. I am passionate about First Impressions because every person that comes through the doors of New Life has value and is created to belong because that is how God sees them. We want to show everyone hospitality so they can see the amazing love God has for them.
