in Non-denominational

For those who are new to Tyler and are in the process of searching out a new Church that leans toward the charismatic non- denominational side, New Covenant Church of Tyler is an excellent option. Pastor Sam Fisher and his wife Yvette have led the church since its founding nearly ten years ago.

                The church is a Bible based church, which places a strong emphasis on both worship and teaching. Since N.C.C. is a more charismatic church, worship definitely takes center stage. The environment is free and open to individual expressions of praise, but not (as the church’s literature states) fanatical. Each congregant is careful not to distract those around them from their private prayers.

                New Covenant has a very strong missions focus. The congregation is a really strong group of wonderful people who place a premium on both global and community outreach.  N.C.C.’s motto is “preaching the good news of Christ, around the world or across the street,” and this church is doing both. The global side of that creed has taken parishioners to Central America, the Holy Land and Eastern Europe. The church also partners with missions groups like Youth With A Mission by supporting staff members financially, and encouraging church members to attend outreaches and ministry events held by the mission. On the local side, N.C.C. partners with Zoe Prison Ministries, supports KVNE Christian radio and participates in the he annual “Arts With A Mission” camps which take place on campus at the Y.W.A.M. center in Lindale. The church also holds the “Mega Sports Camps” as an outreach to area children.  

                But the church does more than just reach out, it also ministers within. There are Sunday school classes for just about every age ranging from children’s church, to Jr. High and High school students. There is an active youth program consisting of teens and high schoolers, as well as a college and career classes for young adults seeking a place to connect with others at the same stage of life. Lastly there are home groups were families can meet to study the scriptures and share experiences.

                Tyler has just about every conceivable shade and flavor of church, but for those looking for a new one, New Covenant Church has a lot to offer. If you prefer a family oriented church with a lot of activities for the average person, consider this one. With plenty of places to plug in and areas to become involved you’ll never be bored unless you want to be. For those wanting more information N.C.C. has a great website.
