My name is Jason Hedrix and my wife Anna and I have been attending New Life for 8 years since moving from Minnesota. We have found that we can come as we are, and become who God has created us to be. I am an Elementary PE teacher and coach in the school district. We also have two children, Grace (6) and Levi (1). Being a parent, teacher, and former youth pastor, I have a heart to see the next generation come to know and serve the Lord. I am excited to see how God will use New Life in our community to draw people to Himself.
