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. 
Pastor Scott Mann
Pastor Scott Mann has been leading New Vision Ministries since 2006. His heart and passion is to see people come to know Jesus in a real way. He cares deeply for the people of New Vision and for the community, and his desire is that all would come into a relationship with Jesus. Pastor Scott and Glenna have been married for 35 years and serve together to make New Vision the kind of place where all are accepted, all are welcomed, and all have the opportunity to explore who they are in Christ.

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.

Timothy (Tim) Christopher  Children’s Ministry Pastor
Pastor Tim aims to introduce children of all ages to Jesus!  Pastor Tim has volunteered within our children’s ministry for 6 years.  He began volunteering as a chaperone during services and special events then progressively became more involved with the ministry in a teaching and evengalism aspect.  He was recently promoted to Children’s Pastor and is excited to continue ministring to the children and working with their families.  His heart is to see children grow in their faith. To have a real and personal relationship with God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit,  and to walk in an anointing that transforms lives around them.  We do not believe that there is a junior Holy Spirit but one that operates fully in and through our children.  While teaching Biblical truths to the kids is his main goal, he also encourages and teaches them to do their best in school, home, and play because they are to do all things as unto the Lord.
