In Appreciation Of Jack Miller (2): A Fresh Hearing of the Gospel

New Life was founded by the vision and drive of a remarkable man of God—Dr. C. John Miller, or as most knew him, Jack. There were many others who came alongside Jack, including Rose Marie, his wife, whom we still think of as the “mother” of our church. But as part of our celebration of our 40th anniversary I want to try and capture something of what compelled Jack forward in a ministry that included the starting of New Life Church and World Harvest Mission (now Serge).

In Appreciation Of Jack Miller (1): A Man Compelled By His Conviction That God Keeps His Promises

New Life was founded by the vision and drive of a remarkable man of God—Dr. C. John Miller, or as most knew him, Jack. There were many others who came alongside Jack, including Rose Marie, his wife, whom we still think of as the “mother” of our church. But as part of our celebration of our 40th anniversary I want to try and capture something of what compelled Jack forward in a ministry that included the starting of New Life Church and World Harvest Mission (now Serge). I will be asking others to do the same (and I welcome many of you to write if you have an insight that will add to our understanding), not to laud the man, but to remind ourselves of core values that are still critical to the kind of ministry that Jack and New Life has represented through the years.

My Revival

“We welcome another challenge from Clair Davis, who is a scholar on revivals but is also very concerned about his own personal revival.”                                                                                                 Steve Smallman

A Few Thoughts from Sean and Claire Transitioning-Part 2

Today we continue our reflections on transitioning and are excited to introduce you to our new home. As we’ve thought about leaving New Life, one of the things that is deeply meaningful to us is knowing that we go with your prayers. Our hope is that those prayers might extend beyond us to become prayers for the city of Portland, its surrounding region, and for Christ the Redeemer Presbyterian Church (CTR). When we think of our leaving, we see it not as something that we are doing on our own, but something that you are a part of, as our “sending” church.
