Amanda Snyder     Worship Leader

Amanda has been serving Christ for more than 20 years. We are fortunate and grateful that the Lord opened the door for her to lead praise and worship at the New Life House of Refuge. When she is not getting her praise on, she lives her life as an adventurer who loves Jesus, coffee, and DIY projects.

Mike Price

My name is Michael Price. I’m a 37 year old Christian Black American man. I’ve been a GOD-fearing man my entire life. My mom raised my sister and I in THE WORD & in Church. In daily prayer and worship we rose in the morning and went to bed at night. Knowing & loving THE LORD has been the centerpiece of my life. I was raised in my family’s neighborhood daycare. The responsibilities I had as a caregiver from an early age had a permanent effect on me. I’ve always loved to help develop others from that time on. I’ve prayed, counseled, preached and taught in my schools, neighborhoods, & workplaces without ceasing. Ive been a member of more than nine Churches in my life: Aiding in serving communities & growing the Churches. I’ve served as a teacher & deacon for many years, youth minister for seven, worship leader ten. On October 4th 2020, I was officially ordained as a pastor of the Gospel of JESUS CHRIST. This feels both natural to me & presents an everlasting reminder to continue to mature and grow for THE GLORY of THE LORD & the sake of others. My vision is to disciple others and lead them closer to THE LORD JESUS.

Debbie Sicurella

Debbie loves the Lord Jesus. She has the heart to see captives be set free, with chains broken and lives transformed by the power of the Blood of Jesus. She is a wife, mother, and grandmother. Debbie enjoys crocheting baby blankets to be a blessing to new moms.

Our History

New Life Ministries was established in 2015 as a house church. In pursuit of our goal of spreading the Word of God, we have proudly built two additional churches to reach out to other communities.

New Life House of Refuge was established in Croomacoochee in 2019 after a major renovation and intensive prayer for revitalization. We have temporarily relocated New Life Church Ridge Manor to 34006 Cortez Blvd. as of December 2019, with plans to build on our Windmere Rd. property in Sherman Hills, Ridge Manor.

Our vision for our church includes a Spanish ministry in the East Pasco area. For more details, do not hesitate to connect with us.

Let us uplift each other and achieve spiritual fulfillment together as we worship and serve.

What We Believe

We affirm the Holy Bible as the inspired Word of God and as the only basis for our beliefs.
