our history

In mid-1997 God moved our founding pastor Ron Hunt and his wife Monica from Honolulu to start New Life here in Petaluma in collaboration with Petaluma Christian Church and the Northern California Evangelistic Association. At first, we were a portable church but God had big plans for New Life, and in 2008 we were able to purchase our current campus. 

We love being a Jesus-centered church that consistently endeavors to walk with Him as He leads us. We’re excited that in addition to helping people experience the life Jesus offers, He’s enabled us to build several church buildings in India and Mexico, take hundreds of people on short term trips to both of these countries, and in our local congregation to baptize nearly a thousand people since our launch. While recognizing all of that, our focus and vision is really on the future God has for us and hope that you will join us.
