Bishop Rudy and CJ Bond are founding pastors of New Life Worship Center - a spirit filled and multi-cultural church located in Tyler, Texas.
In November 2002, Pastor Bond and CJ felt directed to help give birth to a new church called New Life Worship Center in Tyler, TX. In May 2005, the congregation moved into a brand new 40,000 sq. foot facility and in 2010 added an additional 12000 sq. feet for education and administration. New Life will celebrate the grand opening of the new 35,000 sq. foot community center this year. Currently, over 1500 members call New Life Worship Center their church home.
As senior pastors they oversee pastoral staff, elders, church leaders, and all areas of ministry and ministry development. Special attention is given by Pastor Bond to the preaching of the gospel and care for the church family. They have seen God’s faithfulness in growing the church from a handful of people in it’s infancy to a church with multiple ministries and outreaches. They place a high priority on ministry to youth and children. As a result, you will find thriving and growing youth and children’s ministries here at New Life.
