Pastor Dwain Wolfe, his wife Joel and their family pioneered New Horizon in 1991.
Pastor Dwain and Joel both grew up in ministers' homes. Dwain graduated in 1982 from Northwest University with a Bachelor's degree in Biblical Studies and a minor in Business. Joel graduated in 1983 as an RN and in 1998 with a Bachelor's in Theology. Together they have served in full time pastoral ministry since 1983.
With ministry assistance, prayer and support from Christian Faith Center, New Horizon started with a small home meeting at the Wolfe's home in June of 1991. Official Sunday services were started at the end of 1991. *Since that time the church has developed numerous ministries to help people grow and succeed in life, I.E., Recovery programs, Uprising Youth, Small Groups, Marriage Mentoring, Growing Kids, Wealth Builders classes, etc.
The church is also known for its *exuberant worship music, *for experiencing God's presence, 24/7 prayer ministry, emphasis on lay leadership, youth and children's ministries and its faith for interracial fellowship.
The church building sets on six acres at 5600 Valley Avenue E. in Fife, just 5 blocks south east of I-5. They moved into their beautiful ministry center, a 13,000 square foot multi-purpose building in 2004. You'll love the contemporary look with the coffee bar and high tech sound.
