New Life Youth 


We believe that God must be at the core in everything we do. And if God is truly at the core of our being it will be evident in the way we serve his people.



6:30PM | For our social time to hang out and have fun together. 
7:00PM | Service starts for a time of worship, prayer, teaching and fun together.

Meet Your Pastor!



My name is Brandon Smith and my wife Tara and I are the Youth Pastors at New Life Assembly in Oak Grove, Missouri. I am from the “Land of 10,000+ Lakes” also known as Minnesota. I grew up in the great city of Saint Paul and then moved to Minneapolis before pursuing a college degree. I am the youngest of four guys, meaning I have three older brothers.

After four years of college at MidAmerica Nazarene University, I graduated with a Bachelor’s in Youth and Family Ministry. During my college career, I had the opportunity to play football for a perennial team in the nation. I have learned through being at this school that: Alone, one can only grow so much, but with a community of believers the sky is the limits to how much we can grow with God!

  During my senior year of college I met a young lady named Tara. After a year and seven months of being together, I asked Tara if she would spend the rest of her life with me. She said yes and we got married in January of 2014.  Tara graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. She is currently teaching Kindergarten at Oak Grove Primary School..

In my spare time, you can find me hanging out with family, my wife, friends, or working out! I like spending time at Starbucks listening to “Explosions in the Sky” on Pandora while reading my Bible or any other book. I have just began reading more for leisure and it is relaxing. Movies and anything that has to do with most sports are also some of my hobbies. Tara and I are excited for what God is already doing and what He is going to do in NLY!
