New Vision Leadership Team
 
Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our purpose as a church at New Vision Ministries is to LOVE those that no one else loves. To REACH those who others deem unreachable. To EQUIP saints to do the work of God & to be FOUND FAITHFUL when Jesus returns for us.

Tommy Freeman- Worship Leader
 

Tommy has been leading New Vision in worship since 2006. His heart is to lead people deeper in their relationship with Jesus through music and connect with the Father every time he sets foot on stage. His desire is to see the church, the Bride of Christ, rise up and worship the Father is spirit and truth as we have been called to do. Each service is another opportunity for New Vision to do just that- seek God in worship and respond to God’s greatness through music. When Tommy isn’t leading worship at church, he is the frontman for 3:16 Band, a local Christian band with a heart to reach those who are far from God with the Gospel. You can contact him via email at tommyfreem@gmail.com.

Anita Neagle – Youth Director & Ministry Coordinator

Anita is our Ministry Coordinator and Youth Director.  Anita has served at New Vision for 10 years.  Before coming to New Vision she served at her childhood church for fourteen years in various ministry aspects such as teacher, youth leader, a member of the praise team as well as the ministry outreach team.  You can usually find her doing something with our youth – whether it is teaching, mentoring at the middle school, taking them to outreach opportunities, coming up with some crazy game for them to play or taking them outings.    

 Her personal testimony is this, “I surrendered my life to Jesus when I was in 4th grade. I owe a lot of that to my grandparents who took me to church.  I answered a call and said, ‘Here am I Lord. Send me.’  I always thought I would be a missionary and I am to an extent but in a much different field.  God is truly taking me on a great adventure. The road has not always been easy but every step of the way Jesus has been with me. Sometimes sitting quietly by my side. Sometimes running beside me and sometimes carrying me along the way. I can’t imagine life without Him. I am a mother to 2 teenagers, Samuel & Elizabeth. A daughter to the best mom and dad in the world. A sister to the coolest brother, and friend for many but most of all I am Anita, daughter of the Most High God!”
