New Life Ministries Celebrates 25th Anniversary with Six-City Tour

New Life 25th AnniversaryNew Life Ministries in Laguna Beach, CA, is celebrating 25 years of transformational ministry this year with a six-city tour across the nation.

Founded by Pastor Steve Arterburn in 1988 as New Life Treatment Centers, New Life Ministries is today one of the nation’s top Christian counseling ministries. Its nationally syndicated Christian counseling talk show, New Life Live, is heard by millions on more than 180 radio stations nationwide in addition to Sirius XM Satellite radio. It is also seen on FamilyNet Television and the NRB Network.

“Over the past 25 years, we have seen ministries come and go, and we are so grateful that God has blessed us and allowed us to continue minister to those who are struggling in their walk with Christ,” shared Arterburn.

“From the beginning, we have hoped to bring God’s truth and light into the personal and emotional and spiritual darkness that exists within us all at one time or another and for many throughout an entire lifetime,” he added.

Initially, the ministry developed Christian treatment programs in secular psychiatric hospitals, where many were able to gain new hope, insight, and tools for living even after having been admitted in the worst of shape.

Eventually, New Life established Women of Faith for eating disorders, The Calvary Center for alcohol and drug treatment, and a network of counselors throughout the United States. 

“All of this was done with an amazing team of professionals, the power of the Holy Spirit and the amazing grace of God,” commented Arterburn, noting in particular his on-air radio team, which he says is the “strength of New Life.”

To mark its 25th anniversary, the ministry is taking its celebration on the road to six cities across the country. Already, New Life has stopped by two cities – Los Angeles, and more recently, Seattle, where hundreds joined Arterburn and his radio co-hosts, Dr. Jill Hubbard and Dr. Dave Stoop, for an evening filled with worship, laughter, a stroll down memory lane, and a look at what’s ahead.

Upcoming celebrations will be held in Dallas, TX (June 7); San Jose, CA (July 19); Chicago, IL (September 20); and Washington, DC (November 15).

Details will be posted on the New Life website as they become available.
