Jesus was preparing a core of real disciples. Wanting to make sure they were prepared to count the cost and are ready for this journey. They needed to know the difference between fair weather fan or authentic follower. Sometimes telling the difference between the real the imitation is challenging. In this message learn the three-fold cost of real disciples: 1. The Cost of Confession 2. The Cost of Commitment 3. The Cost of Consecration
These are some of the Hard Sayings of Jesus.

New Life In 2005, New Life Centers was born. A new day was on the horizon for the youth of Chicago. What started with a few volunteers has become a movement. We recognized the potential of our city, and worked alongside our neighbors towards what could be. New Community Over the last 10 years, we have worked with youth and families to strengthen and build community. Through God’s faithfulness, we have seen thousands of lives transformed. • Through one-on-one mentoring: providing a long-term, positive adult role model to over 1000 youth ages 10-21. • Through our award winning after-school programming: providing a safe space and enriching the lives of youth with the power of knowledge. • Through our juvenile justice programming: holistically mentoring every youth on probation in Little Village, advocating for youth city-wide that are caught up in the juvenile justice system, and training and equipping others with our nationally recognized Urban Life Skills mentoring model. • Through sports outreach programming: using the power of sport to provide safe space and play for over 1000 youth each year. New City From the beginning, our goal has been to reach the youth of Chicago with the love of the gospel. We believe that by empowering this generation, communities once plagued with hopelessness can experience renewal. As we celebrate 10 years, our mission is to continue that original vision to impact youth across the city of Chicago. Our neighborhoods, full of potential, are ready to be unleashed. Join us as we watch the story continue to unfold and work towards a city full of new…abundant…life. IN TEN YEARS we have seen God change lives, restore communities, and begin to build a new Chicago. We invite you to join us in our mission of bringing new life to the youth of Chicago. http://www.newlifecenters.org
