about NCC

Meet our Pastors

what is NCC?

NCC stands for New Community Church.

We are a church made up of a very diverse group of people - people of different ages, ethnicities, backgrounds. NCC was founded with a vision of

MAKING PEOPLE & PLACES NEW

You'll hear that phrase a lot because that is what we're all about - seeing God transform people's lives and families and workplaces; and as he works through us, we are a part of how he changes the world!

New Community Church has been serving the community of Mesquite for the past 11 years and we have seen God do incredible things here! We believe that what God is doing at NCC shouldn't just stay in Mesquite, but Make People & Places New in other cities as well!

meet pastor aaron

We are so excited you are connecting at NCC! We have had the privilege of being the lead Pastors at NCC since 2014 and have seen God do some incredible things in our time here. Sara and I have been in ministry for over 20 years, but some of our favorite memories and connections have been here at NCC.

 

We have been married for 24 years, have 8 kids, and two Havanese pups named Sam and Leia. Four of our kiddos joined the family through the adoptive process, and we are still passionate about foster and orphan care. Our crazy fun family enjoys watching NFL football, going to Dallas sporting events, playing one of our zillion board games, or going to the pool together. On date nights, Sara and I love eating great food and watching new movies.  When I have solo time, I enjoy taking early morning rides on my Honda ruckus while listening to my favorite true crime podcast.  

 

More than anything, the Escas love getting to serve people and help them connect with Jesus.  We are passionate about discipling people new to faith and helping followers of Jesus discover their purpose and identity in God.  

 

We are so excited you are on this journey with us!
