New Life is a Christ-centered campus ministry at Appalachian State University.

As a community of believers we set out to encounter God through worship, biblical teaching, and everyday life.

By loving each other and purposing ourselves for the success of those around us, we desire to equip students and young believers to know God and become living examples of His love to this world.

However, most of the time will be spent in the Word. This group will be a place where men can challenge one another in their faith and also be vulnerable. We all have issues as men in college, and God has given us a brotherhood to fight together.
