Through the presentation of the uncompromised gospel and powerful praise and worship, we nurture and navigate the people of God towards fulfilling their destiny in life. 

NDCC seeks to help every person to discover their divine purpose in life. It is not our job to as individuals to create our purpose but to discover them. NDCC is a church that operates on purpose and cultivates people in purpose. Collectively we are “Purposed People Directed Towards Destiny.”



Pastor Jamyle J D Searcy

Pastor Jamyle J. D. Searcy is an anointed vessel destined to make an indelible impact for the Kingdom of God. A fourth generation preacher, Pastor Searcy has been rooted in the rich tradition of the church, yet has a charismatic and current presentation of the gospel allowing him to effectively minister across generational lines.

Pastor Searcy is a native of Boston, Massachusetts where he grew up in the harsh, yet historic Roxbury community. He was able to escape the lures of the streets through being educated in the Newton Public School System, a suburb of Boston, and being actively involved in Morning Star Baptist Church. A gifted musician from a young age, the church served as an incubator for his God given skills. His talents continued to be cultivated through formalized musical training in high school. As a result, his musical abilities have taken him around the world serving as preparation for his anointed ministry in music and the preached word.

Upon graduation from high school, Pastor Searcy was awarded a full tuition scholarship to the world-renowned Berklee College of Music in his hometown. However, after a brief time at Berklee, he followed the Lord's leading and relocated to Columbia, SC and enrolled in Benedict College. In 2002, he graduated with Honors earning a Bachelor of Science Degree in Music Education. Still committed to the cause of education, Pastor Searcy is the Choral Music teacher at the historic Lucy Craft Laney Comprehensive High School in Augusta, Georgia. A seminary-trained preacher, Pastor Searcy earned a Master of Divinity Degree with a concentration in Biblical Studies - New Testament from the Interdenominational Theological Center in Atlanta, GA.

Pastor Searcy has served faithfully in many different ministerial capacities throughout his life. Most notably, he served in ministry at Brookland Baptist Church with Rev. Dr. Charles B. Jackson, Sr. becoming a licensed and ordained minister through the Gethsemane Association of the South Carolina Baptist Education and Missions Convention. He also served as Pastor of Worship at Family Worship Center under the leadership of Pastor Derrick w. Hutchins, Sr. Submitting to the evidential pastoral calling on his life, he now faithfully serves as pastor of New Direction Christian Center in Augusta, GA. His love for education combined with his passion for a ministry that reaches the masses allows Pastor Searcy to present the Gospel of Jesus Christ from a scholarly approach delivered with a simplistic appeal.

Pastor Searcy is the loving husband of Dr. Kristie Searcy and the caring father of Jamyle II, Jayla, Kayden, and Myla.
