New Life City Church began in 1998 as a humble Bible study group with members from two local churches. With one of these churches moving out of its UWA home of many years, a vacancy was left in its wake. With their blessings, plans were made to form a new church – called Genesis Fellowship – to continue to cater for the students at UWA.
During these early years, the church was led by a board of elders, but as the church steadily grew, so did the needs of the people attending – one of which was for a resident pastor.
The next chapter: New Life City Church
In 2001, Pastor Benny Ho was invited to take on the role of a supervisory pastor. Together with a small pastoral team, Pastor Benny brought a new element into the church, which was then relaunched as New Life City Church. That same year, the youth ministry exploded onto the scene, taking on the name Joshua Life, or “J-Life”. With a new-found sense of direction and vision, both J-Life and NLCC became established as an integral part of the Australian Asian Churches Network. However, the board of elders still recognised the need for a full-time residential pastor.
