New Life in Christ Christian Church

New Life in Christ Christian Church, led by Interim Minister Rev. Denise Watts-Wilson, is located inside Dismas Charities – Diersen House, a detention center in Louisville. Most of the women in this congregation, which was founded in August 2013, are serving out the last six months of their incarceration due to drug or alcohol-related offenses. Dismas – Diersen houses up to 85 women at maximum capacity and New Life in Christ consistently averages 35 to 40 in worship – that’s approximately 44 percent of the women regularly attending worship. Under the umbrella of Mission Behind Bars and Beyond and their Executive Director, Rev Dean Bucalos, Pastor Carol continuously offers the women of her congregation numerous Life Skills classes throughout the year.
