About us

New Life Ministries, Inc. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization founded in 1992 by Pastor Gary Cooper.  Since Pastor Cooper passed away in 2009, the ministry has been run by the man who had been his assistant, the Secretary of the Board of Directors, and the Assistant Pastor of the local church here, Jeremy Hilderbrand.  (If you knew the ministry team several years ago, or saw us on mission trips, he was the guy usually pushing Pastor Gary's wheelchair.)


We have a church located in Austin, Indiana and have done well over forty mission trips, including 5 to the Gallup, New Mexico area to work with the Navajo people and many trips from one end of the nation of Mexico to the other.  We are a non-denominational Christian group who believes that the greatest way to help people is to share what the Bible says.  The Bible's greatest message is that of salvation through Jesus, but it gives instructions and advice on pretty much any topic we may need help with in this life.
