Church Partnerships

At NewDay, we know that it can be challenging to care for someone struggling with addiction effectively. Also, we believe that the local church is at the center of God’s work on earth today. For these reasons, NewDay partners with and equips churches to respond well to substance abuse and addiction.


Our heart to care for church congregations started with NewDay’s Founder, Dan Johnson. At Dan’s church, many people sought his help to confront their addictions after he taught through the book of Exodus. Following his teaching, Dan’s burden grew for individuals and families that struggled with addiction.


At NewDay, we draw upon our years of experience to help church leaders. In fact, our help for leaders includes valuable information, training, and various resources. Subsequently, we equip church leaders to serve those in their congregation and community that are impacted by addiction.
