These are the heroes with the passion to transform their communities



One-on-one discipleship

Minister | Teacher

— Charde Henderson

 Charde is the  PROVERBS 31  woman incarnate. The way she loves Jesus and serves others transcends human capacity.   Growing up in the church in an affluent household that demanded a high scholarly pursuit of education, she became a  STUDENT OF THE HOLY BIBLE  at a young age. Her strong desire to uphold the truth of the scriptures has always been her strength along her journey of faith.   As her Heavenly Father has matured her, she’s been able to increasingly apply the knowledge of the scriptures through the  LENS OF THE FATHER’S LOVE  for us.  She is constantly looking for ways to serve the body of Christ on a personal relational basis. This is one friend you can depend on who will bombard the Heavens for you!

     When she is not heading up corporate marketing campaigns, she is choreographing dances and building deeper relationships with others around her.

Minister | Father

— Steven Shonk

If anyone demonstrates the true compassionate heart of a  FATHER, it’s Steven. It’s a gentle,  HEALING LOVE  that radiates out of him. His heart is for people to experience the love of the Father like he has come to know so intimately. After climbing to the top of his field in electronic engineering and semi pro racing, it all amounted to nothing in comparison to encountering Jesus. “For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, but to lose your own soul?” (Mark 8:36) Jesus has declared his true identity over Steven and given him a newfound  PURPOSE.

When he’s not relaxing at the boat yard or running around being CEO, he’s pursuing God passionately and sharing his faith with others.

Senior Elder Pastor | Father

— Chris Delvan Gwamna

Pastor Chris Delvan Gwamna is a  GLOBAL MINISTER  based out of Kaduna -Nigeria, with an edge in the teaching and prophetic.  He is the presiding Pastor of The New Life Assembly in Kaduna.  Not only does he oversee other ministry arms namely: Arewa Christian Initiative; House of Jeduthun; Metahost Partnerships and Pisgah Media, but he disciples  INTERNATIONAL PASTORS  stationed all over the world.  He in 2003 successfully accomplished a  BIBLE TRANSLATION  of the Revised Standard Version into Hausa Language, for the Bible League of the United States of America.  Pastor Chris is also well known for his repertoire of songs, with which he has blessed the body of Christ as a Psalmist.  

Yet most importantly above all that, he is a true  FATHER IN THE SPIRIT,  just like Apostle Paul was to Timothy, and Elijah was to Elisha.  He lives his life by the wind of the Spirit. One day he could be in London, the next in Hawaii.  He doesn’t move unless God says move. “If you remain in me, and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”  (John 15:5)  The depth of revelation that he teaches is utterly profound and unparalleled to most biblical teachers.  We are blessed to have  INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP  with this profound man of God, who has become a spiritual father to us.

Pastor | Worshipper

— Jerry Lawrence Pedok

Jerry Lawrence Pedok, a spiritual son and pastor under Pastor Chris, is a  NIGERIAN BASED MISSIONARY who ministers both in music and the Word of God.  He travels widely, preaching the gospel.  He started singing as a young child; the hand of the Lord is mighty upon him.  He sings with much passion and power.  You can’t mistake the anointing of God upon his life.  He conveys the heart of God through his ministry.  He is a  TRUE WORSHIPPER.  God has given him the grace to bring congregations of both the young and old to a place of  HEART-FELT WORSHIP

He has led worship as a visiting minister throughout the world.  On one of his trips to Northern California we were blessed to meet him and build a strong bond.  Jerry’s life was the inspiration for the 2012 documentary film, “When God Leads.”  It was directed by iBEN Adeyanju (TKBN THE KINGDOM BUILDERS NETWORK), Executive Produced by Sola Adebawo.  He also leads the fight to  REDEEM OPPRESSED REFUGEES  from barbaric persecution in the countryside of Nigeria.

Jerry is known to be a man of integrity and credibility, whose life shines Jesus Christ, who is a  VOICE FOR MERCY AND JUSTICE,  sharing what God gives him to those around him.  He has also went on to plant daughter churches out of New Life Assembly to the persecuted and oppressed areas of Nigeria.  He and his family have become family to us, and we joyfully minister the Gospel together.
