nightLIFE church was a dream in the heart of Pastor Adam Friedrich for many years, and in early 2017, he and a few others began to plan how it could be made into a reality. For the following 7 months, they organized a team of excited and passionate young people who want to see their world change. At that point, NLC was born. The team worked every week on developing a new and exciting form of church, which is based on involvement, friendship, and unity.
The central desire of NLC is to win one to Christ, build them up in their gifts, and release them into the destiny that God has for them. This is the foundation of who we are, and why we exist. We aim to develop a culture of involvement, where everyone who attends feels welcome, and engaged. Our ministry is geared toward collage students, young adults, and young professionals. When Jesus began His ministry, one of the first things He did was develop relationships. We intend to follow His example.
Our services are energetic, dynamic, and unapologetic. Our in house band HeartReach has pursued a unique way of worship with original music and an involving ambience. The worship is original and expressive, creating an atmosphere full of life. Everything that is done in our services are planned and purposed to connect with those attending, and steer them towards a powerful encounter with God. The messages at nightLIFE church are interactive, challenging and inspiring. We don’t want people to leave the same way they came in.
Our in house band, HeartReach is a professional group of young musicians who are dedicated to expanding the Kingdom of God through their own original worship songs. They display a level of excellence without losing the heart of what worship is about. The worship sets at NLC are very high energy, and encourages everyone to participate in exiting Jesus Christ.
nightLIFE church meets at The Vault performing arts center in Orange CA, and provides a variety of unique spaces for interaction, and fellowship. When you enter the building you will immediately notice the coffee aroma from our cafe. Here you can enjoy either iced coffee drinks, or a number of hot coffee beverages from our espresso machine. Our services are held on our stage and through a state of the art sound system with full lighting and production, or outside in our amphitheater. Attendees can enjoy spending time by our fire pit, or build relationships on our patio. In our facility, we also have a fully professional recording studio, which we use to record worship, and bands from all over OC.
