NLF Testimonials - George Bull

Twenty two years ago Scott Borden, the pastor of Pine Knolls Alliance church in South Glens Falls and the elders had a vision to start a church in Saratoga Springs. Since the Saratoga Alliance Church had closed several years prior and had merged with the Ballston Spa Alliance Church, many families traveled from the Saratoga area to attend PKA. As one of the elders in PKA, I agreed that we should hire a church plant pastor. After much prayer we took our request to the congregation and they voted to go ahead with planting the church. We also had the blessing of the C&MA District office.

The interview process began and the Lord led us to Joel and Debby Smith.  Joel was hired full time at PKA to develop and shepherd a core group of 150 people for our daughter church. As the mother church PKA agreed to financially support New Life with pastor salary and start-up costs until it became self sufficient. The church started in a vacant store in the Saratoga Mall.  PKA continued to support Joel and his family both financially and in prayer.  I was selected to be a liaison between PKA and New Life by sitting on both governing boards. When New Life, with the help of the Lord, was stable, I as a liaison was no longer needed. The Lord has truly blessed PKA and New Life. I thank God for allowing me to be part of his work.
