Meet Rick


Rick Bezet is the founder and lead pastor of New Life Church. With a God-breathed vision to reach Arkansas, Rick began planting churches throughout the state. Today, with more than a dozen campuses and a multitude of worship experiences, New Life Church continues to reach the state of Arkansas with the message of God’s love. Even as more churches are planted, New Life remains one house, fully devoted to the ever-expanding vision of drawing souls to the hope of Jesus.


Rick is one of the founding directors of the Association of Related Churches (ARC), an organization dedicated to planting life-giving churches across the nation. Rick also helps lead Relate, a coaching association focused on helping lead pastors uncover practical solutions, tactics, and strategies, to help break growth barriers and accomplish the vision God has given them.


He lives in Arkansas with his wife, Michelle, and their four children.
