About Us

"Where Everyone is Accepted, and No One is Judged."

Founding member Alan Jones and Pastor Tracy Patton were called by God to open a loving and affirming church in Southern Indiana in March of 2010.  They held their first service in May of 2010 in a bingo hall in Jeffersonville, Indiana and shortly thereafter New Beginnings Non-Denominational Church was incorporated.  By June of 2011, the congregation had grown from its five original members to the point that the bingo hall could no longer accommodate the group, and New Beginnings moved to a new location in the basement of the 300 Spring building on Spring Street in downtown Jeffersonville where the congregation continued to grow.  

In January of 2014, recognizing the need for more space as the congregation grew to include over 100 members, the church relocated to a purpose-built space in the Quartermaster Station in Jeffersonville.

In October 2016, New Beginnings moved to a new location at 1615 Spring Street in Jeffersonville and for the first time had a stand alone facility.

In June 2019, we had an opportunity to purchase a church building in New Albany, but needed to raise a substantial amount of funds for the down payment. God provided for us, the down payment money was raised, and the church was purchased on August 5th!

On August 6, 2019, NBC moved to our new permanent home at 2219 Spring Avenue, New Albany, Indiana. We know that God has led us to our new home and into a new community to minister and spread His love to our new neighbors.

Cassie Champ

E-Mail Cassie

Cassie is one of our new Board Members. I started attending New Beginnings Church in March of 2015. After a hardship that drew me back to church I decided this was the corner stone that was needed to reground my family as well as myself. As a single mother of two (Gabriel and Guinevere) we used most of our free time volunteering with the church from cleaning to event time volunteering as a way to give back. I became a member in 2017 as this felt like home. My church family has had my back from day one with no judgments, and open arms. In 2019 I felt God advising me to do more, and so I ran for a seat on the church board. I am excited to see where my new role in the position will lead me.
