    My name is Mark Meyers and I have the privilege of serving as pastor of New Life. My primary job is to equip you to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. That means I journey with you in your personal faith walk and decision to follow Jesus. I am passionate about the living Word of God (Jesus Christ) and sharing his teachings which strengthen and challenge us. I am also passionate about the Means of Grace (including the Lord’s Supper and Baptism) which are ways we experience God’s love in our lives. This leads us to serve our community and world, bringing forth not only personal life change, but world change.

    I am an Ordained Elder in the United Methodist Church. I graduated from Cornell College and Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary (on Northwestern Campus). I enjoy movies, music, television shows, gaming and Chicago sports (but mainly the Cubbies!). I have been a touring musician (Clarinet), a martial artist (Tae-Kwon-Do) and am a published author (Urban Fantasy). My wife, Jennifer, and I are passionate about ministry with children and at-risk youth. We are foster parents and have three young children and two cats.

    My name is Jeff Brace and I get the privilege of being one of the Staff at New Life. In my 10+ years in ministry, no matter what my role has been, my underlying passion has been to see people discover and grow in a relationship with Jesus. I serve as the Director of Communications at New Life and I am thrilled to be able to contribute into the lives of our next generation. One of my greatest blessings in life has been my own family. God has blessed me with a beautiful and amazing wife, Karen. We have been married for over  29 awesome years. God has given us 2 wonderful children, Rachel and Andrew. I love New Life where you can - Be Loved, Be Challenged and Make A Difference. It is inspiring and something I will devote my life to.
