Pastor: Elder Willie Duran Howard
A beloved pastor, husband, and father, a successful entrepreneur, and a man who fears and loves the Lord with all his heart, mind & soul
Pastor Howard has a passion for his members from the youth up. Always willing to take time to talk to the members, or just anyone who wants to talk. As a young man, Pastor Howard always enjoyed going to church, especially attending Sunday School and singing in the choir. He also enjoyed playing sports in school, such as football, basketball, and baseball, always viewing himself as a leader. Pastor Howard gave his life to the Lord on March 12, 1997, and on December 12, 1997 preached his first sermon. After being chosen and called to ministry, Pastor Howard started home ministry, jail house ministry, and stayed until God called him to be shepherd to New Vision. It has not been easy. Pastor Howard founded New Vision F.C.C. in 2001 with his family and one testimony. Pastor Howard shares today in the sandey he had to go alone. After arriving at church alone, starting the service alone, and preaching a full message alone (to the pews). But now Pastor realizes he was never alone. Since then God has blessed New Vision F.C.C. with great members of all ages, gender, and color. Pastor Elder Willie D. Howard is a devout anointed man of God. His spirit-led and Bible-fed ministry is a powerful, growing ministry, and we truly believe there is no limit to what God can do.
