PASTOR TIM AND LESLIE BUMPOUS
Pastor Tim is a humble, yet bold servant of God. He is the senior pastor and founder of the New Life Church of God in Newport, Arkansas and the Director of Project New Start. Pastor Tim was called to the ministry in 1994 and began preaching to those behind bars in the jails and prisons. He began to evangelize in churches around Arkansas, however he knew that God had placed a calling upon him to pastor a church. Pastor Tim gave up a successful building contractor business to follow the Lord’s calling and become a full time pastor.
God promises a new life when we accept Him and Pastor Tim is a vessel that God is using. God has given Pastor Tim a calling for the lost, the depressed, the needy, the elderly, the sick and those who are dealing with addictions in their lives. God is using Pastor Tim to change lives in Newport, Arkansas and the surrounding area. After much prayer and fasting, Pastor Tim found himself at 1417 Dewey Avenue in Newport, Arkansas, where a church was for sale. God made a way for him to purchase this church and God is changing lives in Newport and the surrounding area. This building is now the New Life church where the congregation is growing in number and growing in the Spirit..Our pastor has a true anointing over him. Our pastor is a man who truly cares for everyone. Our pastor is a man who wants everyone to come and know the love of Jesus Christ in their lives. Pastor Tim started Project New Start and its numerous outreach programs.
Project New Start is based upon the teaching of Jesus Christ as outlined in Matthew 25: “For I was hungry, and ye gave me meat; I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink; I was a stranger, and ye took me in; naked, and ye clothed me; I was sick, and ye visited me; I was in prison, and ye came unto me.”
