At New Covenant we believe that our lives are to be lived in light of Jesus’ mission to make disciples. Our members practice this Missional Living in various ways both locally and around the world through ministries that show the love of Jesus in word and in deed. If you would like more information on how you can take part in this mission see the ministry areas and contacts listed below.
NCPC supports mission work through over 20 missionaries in almost every region of the globe. These missionaries represent Bible translators, church planters, campus ministers, evangelists and those who train indigenous leaders for future ministry. If you would like more information on NCPC’s work around the world, contact Gary Senn.
For many years NCPC has sent a team to minister to the people of Haiti. The teams focus their efforts on ministering to the orphans and on teaching women to sew with the hope that the women might be able to sell their sewn products. Just above are pictures from our most recent trip to Haiti to minister in the name of Jesus. One team member was overheard saying, "I believe those childern minister more to me than I do to them .They are truly one of God's good blessings!"
At NCPC we also believe we have a responsibility to minister to those in need in our own back yard. Our members participate in several local ministries, many of which are listed below with people you can contact to find out more about how you can serve Jesus here in Aiken.

Many of our members have felt a burden for serving others through disaster relief. In response to hurricane Katrina, our deacons led a disaster relief team to the Gulf Coast. Following that trip, we have continued to work towards FEMA certification so that they will be officially prepared to respond quickly when the need arises. Contact Henry Holley.
