After making two trips to Africa and seeing first hand the afflicted and orphaned, Dave Kase was called into full-time ministry with Christ’s Hope USA.
Christ’s Hope USA is a mobilization nation of Christ’s Hope International, which is an organization that is working towards an AIDS free world by bringing the hope of Jesus Christ to those infected with and affected by HIV/AIDS. This includes people in danger of contracting HIV, those suffering from AIDS, their care-givers, and at-risk children whose parents have died due to AIDS.

Our three core ministries are: Prevention- through a sexual purity program called Genesis Design, Care & Compassion – ministering to those infected with HIV/ADIS, and Orphans and Vulnerable Children Care – through Ministry CarePoints.

West Side helps support Jessie & Mike Filicicchia who both serve with New Life Church on the University of Michigan campus.
New Life Church began as a student group in the mid-1980’s. The first pastor came to Ann Arbor in 1991 while doing research in biochemistry. Together with Great Commission Ministries, he trained and mentored Steve Hayes who became our first full-time pastor in 1997. Together they decided to develop an extensive strategic plan focusing on leadership development, discipleship, and church planting. The result was the official launch of “New Life Church” in January of 1998.
Since then, God has amazing things through NLC. The Sunday service, which began with 60 people and one service, has grown to three services and over 900 regular attendees. Student small group attendance exploded from 20 to over 250. The gospel is presented to hundreds of college students every year on campus. Missions teams are sent out each year to other locations here in the U.S. as well as international sites including Kenya, Haiti and several countries in Latin America. More than 100 students are now in leadership training ventures, learning to be more effective workers, with many of them training for full-time Christian work. There are now more than 20 full-time men and women on staff at NLC. The fields are indeed ripe for harvest!
