Pastor Javier Villa has served in New Life since 2012. He is married to Karina with whom he has 3 daughters. He began a relationship with Jesus during his childhood through the testimony of his uncle and in the midst of family conflicts. He has served the Lord from his youth in various ministries. Pastor Javier's approach is to show others the love of God, train them and help them take part in the mission of God's family. His desire and prayer is that each person can have a fervent, personal relationship with Jesus, and that the kingdom of God is established in every believer, in their family, their neighborhood and their city.

We believe that small groups are the place where real discipleship and life transformation take place. In small groups, people form meaningful relationships and take steps of faith that have long lasting impact. On Saturday, September 10 we are gathering leaders from 25 New Life locations to breathe fresh vision, training, and encouragement into our small groups for the Fall season. All small group leaders and assistants should plan to attend! The conference is available in both English and Spanish. Register online at http://nlc.io/SGC
