Our Mission:

The Mission of the New Life Symphony Orchestra is to share the Gospel through the symphony halls of the world.

The New Life Symphony Orchestra [NLSO] is mobilizing Christian instrumentalists to use their God-given gifts and talents to share the Gospel. The orchestra is unique in that it is targeting the symphony halls of the world, reaching a strata of society that would typically never step foot in a church. All of the instrumentalists of the NLSO volunteer their time to prepare and perform free, world-class concerts for the DFW and Tulsa communities. Financial donations received at these concerts permit, in part, the orchestra’s larger involvement in our community and throughout the world and beyond.

The NLSO evaluates its success by concert attendance, in-kind support, number of loyal patrons, feedback from local and international ministry partners, conversions, and testimonies from members of the orchestra as God works through us. The NLSO draws an average of 1,500 attendees for each of its semi-annual performances. The orchestra receives annual in-kind and professional support valued at nearly $4,000,000.00. Local fund-raising concerts consist of classical masterworks, while mission trip “performances” include symphonic arrangements of hymns (with an explanation of the hymn texts), reading of Scripture, faith stories from members of the orchestra and a clear presentation of the Gospel from the pastor of one of our church partners in the ministry location.

Locally, the NLSO has developed partnerships with Children’s Medical Center in Dallas, Children's Medical Center in Plano and Scottish Rite Hospital in Dallas.

Contributors have a significant role in the success of the orchestra. Many of the instrumentalists on our mission trips would have been unable to participate had it not been for the generosity of numerous individuals. Local ministry efforts to sick children and their families are made possible by loyal supporters of all ages and levels of income.  Click here to partner with us.
