It is the revolutionary empowerment event whose participants are society’s rejects, the poor, fatherless, and homeless, but who are finding hope through the revolutionary Gospel of Jesus Christ to the extent that they are able to reach out through the work of New Life Evangelistic Center as leaders in the fields of broadcasting, renewable energy, and direct help services to others who are in need.
