Emmanuel Echidime

Pastor Emmanuel Echidime, Founder and Chairman of Board of New Life Global Church accepted the Lord in 2000 under the ministration of a German evangelist, ReinhardBonnke. Since then Pastor Emmanuel has been so passionate about the word of God. After answering God's call on his life and attending Bible College in Nigeria, he served as a youth pastor for three years. In 2007 he followed God's call to travel to Malaysia as a missionary where he served as assistant to the Lead Pastor at CGMI Malaysia branch. 

He moved to Canada in 2010 after marrying his wife Sondra and served with Redeemed Christian Church of God as prayer and outreach director prior to his ordination as a Reverend Minsiter in 2013.

Following his ordination he served with Canadian Christian Ministries as District Pastor for Durham Region, responsible for the CCM ordained ministers within that region and has recently been promoted to Regional Overseer for the province of Ontario within Canadian Christian Ministries.

In addition to serving in international ministry in Malaysia, Pastor Emmanuel has had the privilege of travelling both to Trinidad and Nigeria to minister the word of God and looks forward to the divine favour and grace of God opening many more ministry opportunities across nations.

Alan Wood

Pastor Alan accepted the Lord as His Saviour in 1973 and was baptized with the Holy Spirit a year later. He taught Sunday School as a teenager and served in the ushering department.

Alan met and married the woman of his dreams and they were blessed with two children.

He served faithfully in the children’s program of his childhood church and within  several years was acknowledged as a gifted children’s leader and was promoted by God to lead the children’s program in that Church.

In 2005 Alan had the pleasure of going on a missions trip to Porto Rico and at that time God spoke to him and gave him direction regarding his future ministry of leading and guiding children to the Lord.

It was over a length of some time that the LORD, through His word, through dreams, through visions, called Alan and his wife to go to the Phillipines to be missionaries. They were led to build a camp for the Lord there to be used for His glory.

For the past two years the Lord has been using Alan and his wife atNew Life Global Church in Whitby, under the lead pastor, Emmanuel Echidime to lead and guide our teens within the Church.

Alan was called by God to become an ordained Reverend Minister and received this designation in June, 2015. He and his wife continue to be a blessing to New Life Global Church and to the ministry in the Phillipines.
