Travis & Christy Renfroe
After growing up in Arkansas’ River Valley, Travis and Christy Renfroe married in 2004. The couple then became a part of the New Life family and led life groups at New Life Church Conway, where they worked to connect people to each other and, ultimately, the heart of God.
When the Russellville campus launched, they were excited to take on the role of life group pastors closer to their home region. Travis and Christy enjoy spending time with their two boys, Pyrce and Dautry.

Mark & Leslie Pagley
Mark and Leslie have been pastoring for over 27 years and have been on staff with New Life since 2009. Originally from Ohio, Mark and Leslie experienced New Life’s relational, life-giving example of how to do church and knew this was where they needed to be.
Mark and Leslie started out pastoring at NLC Greater Little Rock and overseeing student ministries at all of our campuses. In 2014, however, they moved to Russellville to plant a New Life campus in the River Valley. They have three kids and four grandsons and are passionate about Jesus being the center of every family
