Ministries
 Here at New Testament, we believe that life is a team sport – best done together! So we want to encourage you to check out a Discover Group. Discover Groups are what we call our small groups, and they are integral to all that we do here at NTCC. In fact, small groups are one of our core values because God uses relationships to help us grow. You can’t grow spiritually without connecting relationally. Being involved in a Discover Group will help you do both: connect and grow. They provide a great way to meet new friends, grow in your relationship with God and make a difference. We encourage everyone to be involved in a Discover Group on a weekly basis. There’s one for almost every night of the week, plus afternoon Discover Groups, so find what’s best for you and get connected! Discover Groups are also a great place to bring friends with you so invite friends to join you whether they attend church or not.
How Discover Groups Work Discover Groups consist of a handful of people who meet once a week for just an hour or 2 in convenient locations all across our community. Through these groups, you will experience friendship, accountability, belonging, care and growth. The majority of our Discover Groups are centered around the Sunday morning message and will use a series of questions to aid in the discussion and life application. Others use books, exercise, crafts, sports…anything really that brings people together. What a small time commitment for something that could add so much value to your life!

Great reasons to get involved in a Discover Group
Jumpstart
"You have made known to me the ways of life; You will make me full of joy in your presence.” Acts 2:28 Kids matter to Jesus, and they matter to us. Each child has been “fearfully and wonderfully” created with unique gifts and a specific life purpose. Jumpstart is committed to helping each child personally encounter and understand God’s presence, power and promises. There’s nothing that compares to knowing and enjoying the goodness and faithfulness of Jesus.

InsideOut
The Bible says that a merry, happy heart does good, like medicine. A cheerful, happy heart brings a smile to your face. We like to make sure that happens around here. INSIDEOUT provides a place where teenagers can hang out with friends, make new ones, play some ridiculously crazy games, find encouragement and meet with God. We believe that the power of God is able to change any situation. When nothing seems to be happening on the outside, great work is being done on the inside. As we yield to His Spirit and allow Him to change the motives of our heart (inside), we will see a change in our actions and behavior (outside). Translation: God’s grace transforms us from the Inside Out!

Women's Ministry
Our Women’s Ministry is committed to assisting every woman to find her true identity in Christ. Our main focus is to minister to each woman through spiritual application, relationship building, prayer and support for each other. Growing, learning and serving are all key elements to helping women obtain their full potential. The Women’s Ministry holds monthly meetings or events that foster fellowship, support, prayer and fun! Periodically we have corporate gatherings where women from NTCC and other churches gather in the format of breakfasts, lunches, conferences and seminars. These times are a great means to meet other women in different walks of life, providing fellowship but also continued growth and direction.
Those who look to him are radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed. Psalm 34:5

Men's Ministry
Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9
The purpose of the Men's Ministry is to reveal Christ to all men in order that God's Kingdom will be manifest tangibly in their lives. We seek to sharpen and strengthen men through God's Word, fellowship, encouragement and support. The men of New Testament gather every Saturday morning at 7am to pray for the church, current events and each other. They then go out to breakfast to continue their fellowship. The men also host a variety of gatherings thru the year, as well as find opportunities to serve those inside and outside the church in practical ways. The men have become especially popular with their quarterly church breakfast, where they cook for all to enjoy after service!
