Your Gift Counts
NewLife Behavior Ministries (NLB) is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit, tax-exempt charitable organization founded in Dallas, Texas by Dr. H. M. Motsinger in 1984. Buck Griffith has been President of NLB-USA since July 2002 and its central office is in Corpus Christi, Texas. Today, Dr. Motsinger coordinates NLB efforts that are outside the USA.
NLB is a curriculum-based program that develops, designs, publishes and distributes curriculum to "reconcile individuals to God, their families and society." We also seek to recruit and train volunteer instructors throughout the USA in the use of materials. We now have 2000 volunteer instructors in the USA. Over 30 "Regional Directors" scattered throughout the United States assist.
NLB exists through the generosity of churches, corporations, businesses, foundations, trusts, and individuals committed to helping persons transform negative behaviors.
The NLB curriculum is often used inside prisons, with family members of offenders, with ex-offenders and with anyone struggling to overcome addiction. Our curriculum now consists of 14 courses, including a Children's Edition. The courses are not Bible studies but they use God's Word as a foundation. The curriculum is used in 43 states in the U.S.A. and in almost that many foreign countries. Several courses are available in Spanish, Russian, Bulgarian, and Chinese in addition to English.
How You Can Help
Regular financial support helps NLBM meet ongoing daily expenses. NLBM does not have any paid employees. We are all volunteers. So, 100% of funds contributed go directly into support of the ministry. Many friends send a gift every month to: NewLife Behavior Ministries, P. O. Box 270720, Corpus Christi, Texas 78427-0720. Our physical address is 3833 S. Staples, Suite S-101, Corpus Christi, Texas 78411.
However, some donors have "special interests" and request that help be directed to one of our many unique efforts such as . . .
|•Little Angels||•Workshops||•Curriculum Development|
|•BCC Work||•Tracts||•In-Prision Seminars (R&R)|
|•CDs, DVDs||•Postage||•Baptistries in Prisons|
|•Awards||•CASA||•Training new Volunteers|
You can learn more details about most of the above by going to our "Programs" section.
NLB offers an automatic banking preference for those not wanting to write and mail checks each month. Or, your local bank can do this same through "direct pay". If you need our assistance, notify us by contacting us at (361) 855-3372, fax (361) 855-7469, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Annual Fund Drive
Over the last several years, NLB has conducted its Annual Fund Drive during the final quarter of the calendar year. We track the success of this effort so we ask that you earmark your gift - "Annual Fund Drive". Each year builds upon the preceding one.
These contributions allow us to end each year in a healthy manner and start the New Year on a positive note. Even regular donors usually make "special" or "year-end" gifts. Some prefer to send a gift to NLB at Christmas-time in lieu of sending gifts to loved ones. This is a lasting gift.
We understand that some are not aware of just how much they will be able to contribute until nearly December 31 but these last-minute gifts truly make a difference. And, we are grateful!
Honoring & Remembering Others
A gift to NLB is a powerful way to honor or remember a loved one or friend. It carries the potential of eternal impact. In addition to thanking you, we are happy to notify all the individuals and/or families for you.
Also, we will send them information about NLB so they can appreciate your thoughtfulness and generosity even more.
As a convenience, you may donate through PayPal.
You Can Donate Used Vehicles
We call this program . . . "OLD CAR = NEW LIFE". But the vehicle does not have to be a car. It may be a pick-up truck, 18-wheeler, farm tractor, RV, trailer, boat, yacht, freighter, motorcycle or jet airplane!
Consider this option when about to purchase a new vehicle. Even used-car dealers and junkyards give old vehicles away!
You can receive a tax-deduction and we can quickly turn what you donate into cash to turn a life around that has been headed in the wrong direction. Hence . . . "Old Car = NEW LIFE!"
When you call the NLB office to donate a vehicle, you will be asked a few simple questions (have the VIN number ready, please). It does not necessarily have to be in "running" condition but you must have a clear title to it.
Usually, you will be contacted about the vehicle being picked up within 4-5 working days.
You Can Donate Stock or Bonds
We will gladly put you in contact with our professional investment friends who can guide you (or your money manager) through the process of smoothly transferring stock or bonds from your account into NLB’s account in a way that is best for YOU.
This usually means that our donors end up making tax-wise decisions that leave additional monies to contribute to NLB or other good programs.
Wills & Estates
God has blessed NLB with many forward thinking friends since 1984. A number have kindly remembered us in wills and estate-planning. Though the timing of fruition is unpredictable, such gifts seem to arrive when most needed. We believe the Lord continues to work in mysterious ways that we will never fully understand.
If you need assistance, we will gladly have you (or your attorney) discuss future plans with NLBM’s attorney to determine what best suits your long-range dreams and desires.
Each quarter we send out an "update" to give donors a "sampling" of what is going on here at the Central Office and out in the 43+ states. It is hard to stay 100% informed on every aspect of this work. This fast-moving, changing and adapting ministry is hard to keep up with but you will find these reports most helpful.
