On behalf of the Council and congregation, we are so glad that you have taken the time to allow us an introduction of New Life Christian Reformed Church as we search for our next pastor.


By God’s grace, we have been serving Highland Indiana and the surrounding area since 1953. We have been blessed with a congregation marked with a passion for evangelism, community service, and creating an inviting environment where people of all ages can come together, grow in faith, and build meaningful relationships with each other and God. We are a close-knit community that is committed to worshiping God together, equipping each other to develop spiritual gifts and care deeply for people - body and soul. We are a place where one can hear the truth of God’s word as it is written through sound preaching, worship in song, and prayer.


We believe that God has a plan for us at the corner of Fifth and Ridge, and we are committed to working together to fulfill that plan. We look forward to finding a pastor who will partner with us to achieve our shared vision and make a positive impact on the lives of those around us.

Thank you for considering this opportunity to serve with us. We look forward to getting to know you better as we discern God's calling for our next pastor.
