Partnering For A Purpose
Here at New Life UMC, supporting ministries and missions around the world is a core value of our church. We have made it our mission to help sisters and brothers in Christ as they bring the Word of God and the Light of Christ to a broken and hurting society.
Brake Ministries International
Kelly and Lenora Brake have been involved in world missions since their childhood, both having been called to cross cultural evangelism and outreach at almost the same time in 1973. They met at Nyack College in 1980 while preparing for ministry, and since then have been devoting themselves full time to preaching the powerful good news of Jesus Christ.
Pastoring for 16 years in New York, traveling to over 90 nations, and ministering to over 250 people groups in some of the most remote places of the world, the Brakes are dedicated to going wherever God may send to share God’s grace in every way possible to meet the spiritual and physical needs of both churches and the unreached.

Jericho Partnership is a nonprofit collaboration of word and deed ministry organizations and congregations dedicated to serving the at-risk community of Danbury, CT, focusing on issues related to life and health, our youth, those in need materially, and neighborhood transformation.
Taking our name from the Biblical parable of the Good Samaritan, who aided a beaten and bruised traveler on the ancient road to Jericho, we aim to fulfill the Bible’s twin directives of proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ and of doing good deeds to demonstrate His love – benefiting our community by helping those in need of spiritual, emotional and material transformation.

The United Methodist Church
The United Methodist Church was formed when the Evangelical United Brethren Church and the Methodist Church merged in 1968. But we trace our heritage back so much farther than that. From a small movement in 1700s England, our church is now global with more than 12 million members around the world. While our languages, cultures and nations of origin may differ, a common mission and history unite us in powerful ways.

The Upper Room is a daily devotional magazine published in more than 30 languages and 100 countries around the world. The daily meditations are written by readers of the magazine and others interested in sharing their faith experiences through writing—both laity and clergy, published authors and new writers. The meditations are stories of real people working to live faithfully with the Bible as their touchstone. Every day, readers of The Upper Room around the world read the same story in many different languages and pray the same prayer together. Some of our readers share comments on our website (upperroom.org/devotionals), and some writers share extra pieces of their writing on our blog (upperroom.org/devotionals/blog-posts). The daily devotional guide and the community it draws together invite people to:
- listen to scripture as God’s personal message, linking their stories to God’s story;
- commune with God in prayer;
- see their daily choices and small acts of obedience as part of God’s work;
- realize our connection through Christ as a universal family of believers;
- encounter the living Christ and be transformed into Christ’s likeness.
We offer the daily devotional in a variety of formats, and we encourage you to learn more about our digital and print offerings here: upperroom.org/subscriptions.
