Pastor Peter DiCroce has been the Senior Pastor of New Life Church since January of 2013. It was then that he and his wife Judy, decided together that he would leave his secular career to devote himself fully to Ministry. And although he had always experienced success in his career, his passion for people was far greater.
Ministry has never been about having a title for Pastor Peter. It is a way of life. He has served in various capacities, including missions, outreach and worship. Though his particular passion is to teach and equip people to be fully devoted followers of Christ. His desire is to teach in a Biblically sound way, so they may in turn, teach others. Pastor Peter has a heart for people and a desire to impact lives and families for the Glory of God. He cares deeply about the needs of people and leads with a servant’s heart.
Scripture teaches us that our families are our first and most important ministry. Therefore, we are pleased to say that Pastor Peter has been happily married to his wife Judy, for over thirty years. They have raised two beautiful children, Dane and Paige, who are a testament to the fruit that comes from raising a family with Christ as the foundation!
Judy DiCroce has been happily married to the New Life Church Senior Pastor, Peter DiCroce for over thirty years. Since giving her heart to the Lord, Judy has been an example to women throughout the different stages of her life and walk with the Lord.
Her role in the Connections Ministry is not only fitting for her as our Senior Pastor’s wife, but more importantly as someone who loves people. The Connections Ministry allows Judy to extend herself to meet and serve all those who are new to our church. We are thankful for her representation in this ministry!
In 2013 Judy made a choice to support her husband in the decision to leave his secular career to devote himself fully to ministry. We are grateful for her willingness to come alongside him and take part in the leadership of New Life Church, for the Glory of God.
You can see Judy every Sunday at our Connections Counter, where she would love to meet you and tell you about all that New Life Church has for you and your family!
