Rev. Casey McDorman accepts role as senior pastor

I am pleased to announce, that Rev. Casey McDorman has accepted our invitation, by today’s vote of the congregation, to be the pastor of New Vision Church of the Nazarene. The process of calling Pastor Casey as our next pastor has been a healthy and spiritual journey for all of us, however, it is not an end but a beginning, as God continues to clarify our mission and ministry through Pastor Casey’s leadership.

As we welcome, Pastor Casey, Jamie, Jason and Kylee, let’s bathe them in prayer and ask for God’s blessing to be poured out on them.

Pastoral Candidate Announcement

In consultation with Dr. Jeren Rowell, our District Superintendent, the church board has voted unanimously to extend a call to Rev. Casey McDorman to be our next pastor, and as such, to place his name in nomination before the congregation, for election by the members of the church. This step was taken after seeking the direction of the Lord in prayer and fasting. The board has also held several interviews with the McDormans as well as interviews with other candidates.

Rev. McDorman has accepted the nomination of the board and has agreed to place his name before the church. This election, by ballot, will be open to all members of the New Vision Church of the Nazarene who are at least fifteen years of age. The vote will take place on Sunday morning February 5, 2017, during the morning worship service.

We will hold a congregational meeting this Thursday evening, January 19 at 7:00 pm in which Pastor McDorman and his wife, Jamie, will meet the church and will share with us their testimonies, his vision for ministry and his pastoral experiences. There will be a time of questions and answers between the McDormans and those in attendance.

We encourage all of our New Vision family to join us for this meeting and to continue in earnest prayer for the selection of our new pastor.

Holiday Craft Fair: Nov. 12th, 10am-4pm

Help Make A Difference in People’s Lives

1 in 10: The number of people in the world who don’t have access to safe water.
1 in 3: The number of people who have no access to a bathroom.
700,000: The number of children that die every year due to lack of clean water.

Almost a billion people in our world are living without access to clean water. As a result, the leading cause of death worldwide is illness due to waterborne disease, lack of sanitation, and poor hygiene practices. In fact, every 15 seconds, a child dies due to water-related causes.

Water is essential to basic living, hygiene, food security, and health. A water well provides essential drinking water and hygiene, prevents sickness, and is the basis for successful farming and food security, especially during times of little rain. A well in a village can help keep women and children from having to walk long distances and carry heavy containers of water every day.



The money raised by New Vision from our Holiday Craft Fair will be used to dig and build a well that will provide clean, safe water for an entire community.

Here’s how you can help-

BE A VENDOR – Your booth space rental fee will go towards the well project.
DONATE YOUR CRAFTS – The sale of your craft items will go towards the well project.
DONATE YOUR TIME – Help on one of our create-a-craft workdays in October or help during the hours of the Craft Fair.
SHOP! New Vision’s portion of the proceeds from your purchases will go directly to the well project.
SHARE! Invite your friends by sharing our Facebook event page: Holiday Craft Fair

Why the Church?

On July 3rd, Pastor Jason shares his final word of encouragement at New Vision Church.   In his message, Why The Church?,  he will explore questions such as:Is church still relevant?   With so many online options, is church even needed?   With so many scandals involving religious leaders, is church still helpful?  Guided by the story of the followers of Jesus and their experiences after he ascended to heaven, you will be challenged to consider that church is indeed still relevant and helpful for your own spiritual growth as well as that of your family and the world.
