New Vision’s merge in 2011 with a long-established University Heights church, resulted in amazing resources that expand our outreach in every direction. “Mission team host” is not just tagged on to someone’s job description, nor is it left to an inexperienced ministry intern. The program is lead by a dedicated staff pastor who brings outside groups in to serve alongside our ministries year-round.
Mike Haskins and his family were called to move back to San Diego to take over and expand the urban missions ministry. Mike has spent most of his career as a professional youth worker with a recent foray into the world of technology as a corporate trainer for Apple Care advisors. Mike and his family love their life on-site at New Vision, grateful for the “daily bread” God provides to sustain them here.
