AJ & Sarah Newell

AJ was born in Papua, Indonesia, where his parents served as missionaries. He lived there until he was eleven years old, when his family moved back to Wheaton, IL. Sarah was born in Sacramento, CA, but spent most of her childhood in Portland, OR. Her parents served in college campus ministry at the local colleges. Since they both grew up in families involved in full-time ministry, it’s no surprise that they met each other while getting ministry training at Moody Bible Institute.

Sarah initially came to Life Action through Revive Our Hearts in 2004, where she served as an Administrative Assistant. AJ came in 2005 and initially served with our Facilities Team. They were married shortly after AJ’s arrival at Life Action and now have five children. In 2010 God called them to serve full time with The Camp as youth leaders. Currently, AJ is serving on the Facilities Team at The Camp.
