- In 1997 Dr. Frank Harvey and New Covenant Church of Clyde sent out Brian & Shawn Cagle with several other families to begin a new church work in Jackson County, North Carolina. That July,
celebrated its first service in a renovated hardware store in the heart of downtown Sylva. The goal was to impact our world with the message of Christ through contemporary worship, relevant teaching, meaningful relationships and by putting our faith into action. In 2003 Brian left to establish The Worship Connection, equipping ministers and ministries in the area of worship. His passion for the presence of God left a lasting legacy in our hearts and lives. Mike &
have continued to build upon that foundation. Their contagious love for God and people has created a culture where church isn't something you do, it's something you are. That has brought together a diverse group of people committed to the cause of Christ. In 2007 we sent out Scott & Dianna Woodard to establish a new church in
. NewLife Community Church of Clayton is the first of what we believe will be many more to come. We are affiliated with Covenant Life Ministries and
Evangel Fellowship International
and continue to partner with other like hearted ministers and ministries locally, regionally and internationally.
