Welcome

Your life matters to God and it matters to us.

Who are you? What’s your name? What makes you unique? What makes you feel most alive? We will never know our true identity until we know God. One of the most life changing questions Jesus asked His followers was: “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” Matthew 16:15

Together, we want to live the life that God alone can give. We are called to join Jesus in the story of God’s redemption in our families, in Tucson, and in our world.

We would love to have you join us! Check the calendar for upcoming events.  If you have questions or want more info please contact Dustin Tramel, our youth pastor, at youth@newlifetucson.com or send him a text: 520-490-9466.

We are a group of youth, adults, and families who love Jesus and want to know him more.

The most important influences on the spiritual lives of our youth are parents and adults so we do our best to support families as they lead their kids.

We are passionate about Jesus and the good news of his gospel.

“You’ve considered what seem like similarities in religion, right? But what of the differences? Look, when you think about it, Islam is not about love, but submission. Buddhism is not about love, but escaping suffering. Hinduism is not about love, but escaping the illusion of the world. Christianity is not about love, but forgiveness. Love may be significant in each, but it’s not the central message of each. Why do we think a modest similarity is more important than the massive differences? We can all be wrong but we can’t all be right.” -Greg Koukl, str.org

We believe the gospel is the good news of Jesus Christ who died for our sins and was raised from the dead. He is our savior, our rescuer, our Messiah, the glorious one true God. He is the hope of Tucson and the world. By his sacrifice on the cross our sins are forgiven and we receive the free gift of eternal life in the kingdom of God. We exist to glorify Him in all that we do.

“The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost.” 1 Timothy 1:15

“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9

Family First

We believe the most important influences on the spiritual lives of our youth are parents and adults.

“Belonging always comes through the context of relationship. People disconnect when they don’t feel like they belong.” -Chuck Bomar

ARTICLE: Why Youth Stay in Church When They Grow Up

They become Christians - We are on our knees praying that the Holy Spirit will do miraculous saving work in the hearts of our youth as the Word of God speaks to them

They have been trained, not entertained – “Are we sending out students that will show up to college in a different state, join a church, and begin doing the work of gospel ministry without being asked?”

Parents and adults preached the gospel to them — “The common thread that binds together almost every ministry-minded 20-something that I know is abundantly clear; a home where the gospel was not peripheral but absolutely central.”

ARTICLE: Theology – Not Just A Problem With Youth Ministry

Many mistake the gospel with moralism – being a good person, reading your Bible, or opening the door for the elderly in order to earn God’s favor. But the gospel is altogether different.

ARTICLE: Family First in Youth Discipleship and Evangelism

The biblical model is that parents are to be the primary spiritual leaders of their children. Parents need to take responsibility for this, commit themselves to this work, and not assume the church will do this work. The church must actively place responsibility on the parents, and equip and encourage them in this work.

ARTICLE: Youth Ministry Done Well for the Benefit of the Church

Bible-centered – Send out students who believe, read, study, and love God’s Word.

Church-focused – “A church-focused youth ministry has leaders who go out of their way to remind the students (and themselves) that their youth group is not the church.”

Family-oriented – The youth ministry should stand with parents and families by partnering with them in their ministry to their kids.
