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.
Many of us have our own preconceived notions of who God is and what He is like. We truely begin to know and discover God as He reveals Himself in the Bible. When we come to understand how holy, powerful and amazing He is, we begin to worship Him with confidence.

An Atmosphere of Fasting, Prayer, and Worship

A New Year's Prayer
We were created to make some noise with our lives. Noise that reflects the One who has created us. But often our lives are muted by many competing things. In this series we will learn what bold worship is and how to amplify the God given message of our lives. This series will go along with our 21 days of prayer and fasting. Look for opportunities to spend extended times in prayer and worship at your location.
Join us for a time of prayer and worship in the hospitality room. The kick-off will start at 6:00pm on Friday and we will end fast on Saturday at 6:00pm with a closing service.
We all long for genuine relationships in our lives, but finding and experiencing these relationships can be challenging. This conference will equip you to better relate in authentic ways and create strong, thriving relationships that last. Couples – http://nlc.io/GRCC Singles – http://nlc.io/GRCS
