On August 14, 1997 the Lord divinely commissioned Jeff into the ministry when He audibly spoke telling him to “build the Church”. A short time later, the Lord gave Jeff the vision for New Vision Church, a vision to make disciples and plant churches. Since that time, the Lord has continued to define the vision, giving it more clarity and depth with each passing year.
Although the Lord gave the vision for New Vision Church in 1997, it was not until 2003 that Jeff and Jennifer stepped out of the Foursquare denomination to pursue the vision God had given them, the vision of an every member functioning church, and start New Vision Church.
New Vision Ministries was formed in 2009 when the Lord gave the word to begin “lighting houses around the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ”. It was at this time the vision for New Vision Church expanded from a house church reaching a community into a network of every member functioning house churches reaching across the world.
New Vision Church is overseen by Jeff and Jennifer Dixon. Jeff has more than 26-years of experience in the ministry, eighteen of those years have been served with Jennifer at his side. Prior to starting New Vision Church, they served in many ministry roles, including as Children’s Pastors, Youth Pastors, Church Planters, and Senior Pastors within the Foursquare denomination.
Throughout their years in ministry, Jeff and Jennifer have attended various schools of ministry training, leadership training, and church planting training. Jeff has a Bachelors of Ministry degree and is currently pursuing his Masters in Ministry. He also has a passion for healthy living and is a NASM Certified Personal Trainer with 7 specializations.
Jeff and Jennifer met in 1994 and were married in 1995. They currently live in Northcentral Washington with their two teenage boys, where they enjoy hiking, fishing, and other outdoor activities.
Jeff and Jennifer’s hearts’ desire is to raise up sold-out, radical disciples who are committed to authentic biblical Christianity and see churches planted around the world which hold to the original pattern laid down by the apostles in which every member was allowed to participate and function according to their gifting (1 Cor. 14:23-33; 15:58; Heb. 6:10; 10:19-25; 1 Pet.2:5, 9-10; 4:10-11).
