Our Church History

          Pastor Foy and his wife, Angela, started a Bible study in their home in 1996, in New Orleans.  As the Bible study grew, so did the need for a bigger place. Pastor Foy shared this need with the Elysian Fields Baptist Church and they graciously allowed us the use of their facility.  In November of that same year, we held our first public Bible study. Exactly one month later, we held our first Sunday worship service. The New Orleans Baptist Association (NOBA), heard of our work and presented us with the opportunity of joining their Association as a Mission Church. Thus, New Life Ministry was the birth of New Life Ministry.

          Next, we thought it would be fitting to develop a Praise Team to lead us in worship experience. After establishing our praise team, we turned our attention to developing an educational component to the ministry called Sunday school. Hence, we started training individuals to teach our Sunday school classes. Approximately six months later, we hosted our first Sunday school with three age appropriate classes. Not long afterward, we increased our Sunday program to seven age appropriate classes.

          After six years of ministry, God blessed us with the opportunity of purchasing our own building. Notwithstanding, the purchasing our own building generated a spirit of excitement among the members. It was at that time that we began reaching out to our new community which allowed us to develop and cultivate new relationships.

          To our surprise, the excitement of owning our on place of worship facilitated us growing into a stronger and healthier ministry. Unfortunately, in 2005, we did not calculate Hurricane Katrina. We had assumed that New Life Ministry would out live us all. However, like many churches in New Orleans, we too were totally unprepared for devastation of this storm. New Life Ministry had crashed beyond repair. The church body was scattered, our homes were lost, and families were disconnected. It appeared that the city of New Orleans would not recover. However, we were proven wrong, for God had other plans for both New Orleans and New Life Ministry. God had overruled both the devastation of Hurricane Katrina as well as our personal expectations in the matter. 

          In April 2009, Pastor Foy and his wife, Angela, with the help and support of the New Orleans Baptist Association decided to restart New Life Ministry.  Once again, after six years of ministry, we were able to purchase our new place of ministry in the New Orleans east arear. As of this year, we celebrate over 11 years of ministry in our new place of worship at 10054 S. I-10 Service Road. It has become amazingly clear to us that God has a definite plan for New Life Ministry. For this cause, we thank each member of this ministry for their labor of love and support in the rebooting of our ministry.  Please continue to pray for us as we prepare for the great things God has in store for the New Life Ministry Baptist Church.  "For if God be for us, who can be against us?"
