Pastor Dwayne Eslick grew up in the city of Miami and by sixth grade had been arrested twice. At that time, he met a group of Christians who reached out to him and his single mother. He made a serious commitment to follow Christ at the age of 13. After graduating from Moody Bible Institute, he went on staff at New Life Community Church in 1998, at their first location on the south side of Chicago. For 15 years he served as a youth pastor at that location, leading hundreds of youth to the Lord. In late 2011, God called Dwayne to plant the 15th location of New Life in the NE corner of Chicago. God brought together New Life Community Church - Rogers Park, a vibrant congregation that reflects the diversity of a neighborhood famous for its ethnic, racial, and cultural diversity on Chicago's north side. Dwayne's wife, Cecilia, grew up on Chicago's south side and has worked with young girls and ministered to women for over 20 years. Together they have four beautiful children. Dwayne is currently the Assistant Director of Miami-Dade County for First Priority.
