Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of ministry.

Lead Pastor John D. Milam is an Ordained Bishop with the Church of God (Cleveland, TN).  In his 25 plus years in ministry he has served the Lord as a youth pastor, associate pastor, special speaker/evangelist, conference/seminar speaker and Senior Pastor. He is a very anointed preacher who is passionate about the Word of God.  Pastor John believes that a "balanced diet" of the whole Bible leads to a healthy and vibrant congregation that operates in the Five Fold Ministry gifting.  Through his conviction, transparency, humor, boldness, and openness to the leading of the Spirit he communicates the Gospel in an very relavent, yet uncompromising manner that leaves you full of the victorious power of God and always wanting more. He is very sensitive to the move of the Holy Spirit and strives to create an atmosphere where the Holy Spirit has liberty to "make Himself at home" in our midst.   God has given Pastor John a great vision for New Life and for the Milledgeville/Baldwin Co. area. Pastor John is without doubt a Shepherd who loves his sheep...and they love him.

Pastor John has been married to his beautiful wife and our First Lady/Co-Pastor, Lori Milam,  for 27 years and have been blessed with three amazing children. John David (22), Hayley (19), and Seth (14)


A word from Pastor John:

"I want to thank you for stopping by our site and getting to know us a little bit.  I don't believe that anything in the life of a believer happens by chance, so I want you to know that it is a divine appointment that you are reading this now. I also want you to know that  God loves you so very much and He has so many blessings in store for you and your family. His Desire is that you would have the true Joy of life and live it to the fullest!   His Word, His Power, and His Spirit will change your life forever!  This is the hope that we have in Jesus Christ and what you will experience at New Life.

If you have not yet had the opportunity to meet the one who made all of this possible, Jesus Christ, your Savior, then please go now to our Salvation page.  It will be the single greatest moment of your life...You will never regret it. 

I look forward to meeting you this week in one of our services.  Please make sure that you stop by our hospitality room so we can give you a special gift and spend a few personal moments with you.  Feel free to personally contact me if I can serve you in any way.

May You enjoy the fullness of the Rich Blessings of God as you Live the Abundant Life by the Power to Believe, Become, and Belong!"
