“If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory and the power forever and ever. Amen.” 1 Peter 4:11

The New Life Christian School Parent Volunteer Organization (PVO) is a volunteer organization consisting of parents who intend to be the light of Christ through servant leadership. The PVO acts as the link between volunteers and the service opportunities at New Life Christian School. The PVO will be the central hub for volunteer inquiries and volunteer staffing. NLCS is a community of Christians, including parents, grandparents, family, church, and friends who express commitment through volunteering. “Committed to Service” is a fundamental aspect of our Core Values, and we’re seeking your assistance to uphold this important commitment to our community.
