How do you evaluate the success of your programs?

The greatest evaluation tool that we use at New Life Ministries is the word of God and the mission to which God has called us to. Are we teaching and preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ to the poor? Yes. Are we bringing release to the captives, recovery of sight to the blind and lifting the burdens of the downtrodden? Yes. This was and is the ministry of Jesus. Are we winning young people to Christ and making them Disciples of Christ? Yes. Are we fulfilling our mission and vision to urban Jackson? Yes. Are we developing leaders that are committed to God’s truth and God’s purposes? Yes. We thank God how He has used us in urban Jackson these past 31 years. We are now ministering into our third generation of some families.

We know that we are successful if we see lives being changed and molded by God. I could list for you a number of young people who grew up in our ministry and have been changed by God through the gospel work of New Life over the last thirty years. Let me mention a few: Demetria who has served the Lord in China for many years. Maurice graduated from Princeton University and is a computer programmer. Carlos graduated from Belhaven and serves the Lord both in the public schools as a teacher and as at New Life volunteer. Jacco and Chris has returned from an early life of rebellion but now are serving the Lord at New Life. Shana, who graduated with high honors, is serving the Lord in Iraq as an intelligence officer in the Army. There have been many more children like Christy, Reginald, Barb, and Tiff who graduated from high school and went on to go to college and some even to graduate school. The ones of these who are married are centering their lives on Christ.

There have been others like Mark, Nick, Pat, Pie, Dwann, Tony, Ben and Curtis who were turned from a path of crime and violence and directed in paths of godliness and are living quiet lives of integrity. We even have had several of our youth receive college basketball scholarships and now are playing in the pros.

There have been many young people in whom we have planted good seed and we will never know until heaven whether it took root and grew. I would like to think that they all did and that I will see them all there in eternity worshipping our King.
