This organization speaks to all of us. It draws our attention to what really matters, and that is making an impact and difference for others. No drum roll and no fanfare. The driving force behind this passion; this mission, is to make all of us think and act beyond ourselves.
My sister starts being part of this group, then I was present in a concert, when I saw all the things they do, I can only say that I loved it! so I decide join the team for praise God and for others to know about Jesus... God blessed me with this team, is one of the best things that could happened to me.
I've know George a long time and was able to see first hand the ministry impact he has not only in song and sign language, but in the personal lives of individuals he has served. My son served as an intern for George two years ago and the year he spent in the ministry of V2H and traveling with George impacted his life's purpose and goals in a BIG way. My son was changed forever and is now passionate about family and youth ministries in his own future ministry. Thank you George and V2H!
I am a current missionary, with a Bachelor's degree in Youth Ministry. Where I am today is a direct product of Vision 2 Hear Ministries. Through this ministry of course I was able to see many new places and meet many new people, however the value of this ministry is ability to mold and shape people into servants of Christ, putting others before yourself and Christ always first. If there were ever a ministry that followed the commands both "to Go" and "to make Disciples" Vision 2 Hear is where it is at. Through one on one discipleship missions and general youth ministry events Vision 2 Hear shaped my philosophy of ministry by continuously teaching new ways to own your faith and what it means to serve others. Now I have the great privilege of take the experiences and knowledge acquired as a product of Vision 2 hear and pass these tools and ideals on with Students in Germany.
V2H has come to our little village in Nicaragua five times now! Because of their time there our teens have developed such a great ministry. They have learned so much and grown so much in The Lord. With the help of V2H we have disciples who love to disciple others! Such a great ministry!
I was so blessed this past June to serve on a Mission Trip with George in Nicaragua. I saw first hand the impact Vision to Hear has had on the lives of the children in those villages. In a very short period of time with just a couple of visits from George, these children have studied and learned many Spanish and American Christian songs using sign. This expression of God's love has been received by these beautiful children, and now they are excited to share with others and they LOVE it!
George is an outstanding servant of God he and his group have come to my church and worked with my students and really got them excited about sign language and the different ministries that they do ! I would recommend him one million times over , and I look forward to working with him in the near future!
I met George for the first time over two years ago at our camp in Nicaragua. My husband and I have a Ministry there in a small Village and work with children and teens. He met with us and talked to us about his Ministry Vision 2 Hear and that he would love to teach and share his Ministry with the children in Nicaragua.. I just stand in awe watching the teens and how much they have learned and how it has helped the teens have confidence to share praise to God. They are now sharing praise with the schools and other Churches in their Country. They absolutely LOVE IT!!
We asked George to go anytime and stay at our camp with or without us...He has an AMAZING MINISTRY that is helping so many and touching so many lives! Thank you George for all you do...you are an amazing man with a love for Jesus and others!!
Vision 2 Hear is a ministry that uses 'power signing" (a modified version of American Sign Language) to interpret contemporary christian music and share the Gospel in a non-threatening way. V2H can minister in venues and areas that many mainstream ministries cannot.
It has been years since I had been in contact with George. We reconnected after 20 years and had a blast. I learned all about his minsitry at Vision 2 Hear. They came to the school I was working at and then to the local church I attend. What an impactful ministry.
My family was in the process of moving, and his ministry was in South Florida. Knowing our financial situation, he invited my girls to attend a week long camp for free. They had a blas! My wife and I were impacted by his generosity and kindness. My daughters still talk about the fun they had and what God showed them through it.
Thank you George and thank you Vision 2 Hear ministries.
Since our move from California to Georgia for the purpose of working in children's ministry in 2003, we have had the pleasure of knowing George Lockhart and have found the following to be true.
This is a, constant, dependable, reliable, leadership building, grace abounding, Christ centered ministry. This also describes the founder of this ministry George Lockhart who, I think, tries to instill these virtues in the youth of today through the ministry God has called him to.
Thank you George for making a difference in my son Michael life. We pray for you all the time.
I have personally known George Lockhart since 2000, when he & my younger brother, Chris, used to hang out. George introduced Vision 2 Hear to a church I was attending, and working part-time at. As a person, he is one of the most sincere leaders. As a leader of Vision2Hear, I would trust my daughter with him. His teams bring unparalleled glory & honor to Jesus, through their signing of Christian songs. Every time I am able to see him, I am blown away by the talent of the kids in his group, and also the way they point everything they do towards the Honor and Glory of Jesus Christ.
George and Vision2Hear has changed my life and the life of my 3 boys forever. Seeing a song through their creativity has totally enhanced our spiritual walk with Jesus. George's messages are applicable to everyday life and inspire us to serve Jesus Christ with our whole hearts. The one message that has stuck in our hearts was "Love God, love others-that's all that matters". This ministry walks the walks and talks the talk-with mouths and hands. Once you experience Vision2hear, you will never be the same.
George and his Vision 2 Hear team came out to our church in September 2013 to help us lead worship. We were impressed by the number of youth that participated in the ministry, and the passion everyone displayed during worship.
Although George was not there to preach, our congregation received a "word" that stuck with them. Our church thoroughly enjoyed the energy they brought to the service and they were inspired by the thought that worship is more than just music and singing.
I would definitely recommend them to any church that is looking for a guest to add a creative element to their worship service. We were truly blessed by them and hope to have them come back and visit again sometime in the near future!
We began with Vision 2 Hear in 2008 when my daughter was a freshman in high school. She began learning sign language with George. Through the organization she has become a leader of a WAVE group at our church, New Vision Church in Fayetteville, GA. Under George's guidance and leadership she has become more confident, but most importantly, has grown closer to God. One of her goals is to graduate college and help with the non-profit financial side of V2H when possible.
I am grateful for George's dedication to the youth of our community and to missions around the world. Most importantly, I am grateful that he has become a part of our extended family!
George works with the youth at our church. He does an outstanding job with them. I am so inspired by George and the ministry of V2H. George recently preached at church about being used by God, about how we are created for a specific role. His illustration of a puzzle brought the message home. My life can be a mess, like a 500 piece puzzle dumped out on the floor, and yet no one else will fit in the place I was created for. George helped me to see that even though I can't see the finished "puzzle" called my life, God can and all I have to do is trust Him. Vision to Hear Ministries is a wonderful organization. Thanks to George for his willingness to serve.
As a young couple (10 years ago) my husband and I joined what would be "our" church. One of the reasons we chose the church was due to a brother and sister team that was allowed to minister to the congregation through leading worship via a very powerful sign language method. Here I am, a decade later, finding myself joined up with that sibling team and it's founder/leader George teaching our youth to reach out and minister with this group V2H, the same group that taught the siblings to worship our Lord in this way. BLESSED! Blessed am I, blessed is our youth, blessed are all those who have a chance to view and participate in a worship time with V2H and it's members.
Back in 2001, when I first met with Pastor Goerge, In my home town AMAKOFIA (AKASI) UTUTU, ABIA STATE, NIGERIA. Pastor Goerge is a missionary with a loving and caring heart, along side with his friends that visited us. It was a happy and great moment for me and my people to meet pastor Goerge, and his team.
He introduced to us Vision2Hear(V2H), which i was made the Youth leader. It was awesome for me to have such a great privilege working under Pastor Goerge. At first we experienced a difficult moment with our youths but gradually God made His way in our life's.
My life would not be what it is today without V2H ministry and Pastor Goerge. I can honestly say, with all my experiences and all that I have learned, V2H has been very important in my life and family. being a member of V2H, I can personally say, it's an awesome organization for humanity and for the kingdom of God. V2H has changed and impacted in my life spiritually and physically. V2H and Pastor Goerge are responsible for my Education here in Nigeria and also providing for my friends Festus, Rosemary, Bridgette and Ikechukwu etc.
I am so happy for being a member of V2h. I have learn to love and to forgive in every circumstance. Thanks V2H, Thanks Pastor Goerge fo letting me know the reality of our LORD JESUS CHRIST!!!!!!!. love you.
I began my role with V2H in 1999. This organization made me the leader I am today. The tools and skills I use to be a successful Air Force officer are directly related to the principles, ideals, and Christ-like mindset that Vision 2 Hear stands for and teaches. I was able to go on multiple mission trips from the US states of Georgia to Colorado, all the way down to Honduras and El Salvador. Even after 13 years the people I've met and the lessons I've learned continue to be a huge part of my life. And this isn't even mentioning the amazing work that God does through this ministry! I've been able to influence lives of people from simply performing on a stage to planting almost 1,000 trees in helping an area recover from a devastating wild fire...and that's just from the little bit I've gotten to do! I can't express how much V2H shaped the person I am today and the relationship I have with Christ. The best way to find out is to look them up, get connected, and start really growing and living!
About 9 years ago I was introduced to V2H. George had come to my children's school for a chapel service. I was so impressed with the energy and enthusiasm displayed using sign language to Christian music. More than that, I saw the excitement in all the kids faces as George would share the gospel and sign. Truly captivating! It left an incredible impression. Fast forward 5 years and I found myself really desiring to serve God and wanting to have an impact on the youth. This ministry was a perfect fit. George re-launched a WAVE team in Miami. What I have seen in the past 4 years is nothing less than God's love and growth through the V2H/WAVE ministry; not only in our students but in myself, too. The team has had the privilege of serving not only in Miami and Georgia for many events, but also some team members have had the opportunity to go to El Salvador and Honduras serving alongside George in orphanages and the deaf community. It doesn't matter whether we speak the same language, we all can speak "God" in serving and love to one another. The greatest blessing is seeing a young person worship God in a very personal way through WAVE. This ministry helps to develop personal growth in God, discipline, team work, compassion and love for others. I am thankful that I have had the honor to serve as a leader and have made an impact in students lives through V2H.
