Vision2Hear has been such a huge part of my life for a good 7 or 8 years now and it has impacted my family and me in such a positive way. They accept any and everyone no matter what and they strive to make God the center of the ministry. Plus its super fun to be a part of, I mean, how many teenagers can say they know sign language? You don't even have to know any sign language at all to join! All I can say is I have no regrets about working with v2h and I hope it stays a part of my life and the lives of others for a long time.
My family has been involved with Vision2Hear since it began over 10 years ago. It is a wonderful ministry, and quite unique in its use of sign language to share the gospel. The high energy signing and choreography is unlike anything I've ever seen. Two of my children have been part of the WAVE teams in our city. They have gained valuable leadership skills as well as sharing their faith. George Lockhart is a uniquely talented and gifted man who uses the gifts that God has given him to impact the lives of those around him, especially teenagers. I am very proud to be a part of this great ministry as a volunteer and am excited to see it grow and spread to other countries. I pray that God would continue to bless Vision2Hear and use it as a means of taking the good news of Christ to the uttermost parts of the earth.
Vision 2 Hear has made an incredible impact on my life. I joined when I was 13, and am now leading my own team at 18. I have seen almost every aspect of Vision 2 Hear, but what has impacted me the most is the sense of family and the mission trips I have been on. V2H is like a second family to me. They will always help me and back me up when I'm struggling, and they accept anyone, no matter where they are in their life and relationship with God. Also, I have been to El Salvador and Honduras and I'm hoping to go back this upcoming year. To be 18 and say I have been able to travel to other countries is unique in itself, but to say I did it to share the gospel is an incredible blessing. Those trips made me a stronger, more independent, and caring person. It is one thing to hear about the conditions in other countries, but another to experience it first hand. These trips ultimately decided my career path; Deaf Education with a minor in Spanish for these mission trips. I love this ministry so much, and I hope to see it grow even more.
Vision 2 Hear continues to excel as an exceptional ministry that continues to grow and inspire others. I've been involved with the ministry for nearly 7 years. I continue to be amazed by the unique, engaging WAVE team performances and impressed with the expansion of other aspects of the ministry. The vision to Creatively Communicate Christ around the world is definitely being pursued and realized. The passion for pursuing Christ is so evident in George's life and many others involved with this organization. I am consumed by this ministry because it truly is a great organization that has changed my life.
When I first encountered this group, I was immediately impressed with the unique, high energy performance that involved sign language and creative motion choreographed to music. I subsequently became more involved as a volunteer and supporter. Vision 2 Hear is much more than a youth artistic performance group. V2H is committed to youth development. V2H helps young people develop leadership skills, leads them to genuine and creative worship of Jesus, and provides them with opportunities to serve others in the US and worldwide. I have personally witnessed the humility, dedication and sacrifice of many student participants in Vision 2 Hear. I have a great admiration for the founder of V2H because of his creativity, enthusiasm and authenticity. He has a unique ability to connect with young people. There are opportunities for young people of all ages and backgrounds with V2H. Participants will find that the founder and other adult leaders genuinely value them and will sacrifice their time, energy and efforts to help them thrive. Vision 2 Hear seeks to expand its program throughout the US and the world and has an effective process that allows them to establish local groups. I highly recommend and endorse Vision 2 Hear as an exemplary organization that empowers young people to make the world a better place.
Vision 2 Hear is a ministry that covers many different facets. They have 8 WAVE teams, which uses sign language and interpretive movement to convey the Good News of Christ, in the US as well as El Salvador. In the fall of 2012, a new team in Nicaragua will be formed. They also have ELEVATE which is a skate board ministry that provides a safe environment for those who like to board or bike on ramps. And will begin a surfing ministry in 2012 in Nicaragua. V2H has built wells in Africa, and collected money for water filters to give other places in the world good drinking water. Currently based out of New Vision Church in Fayetteville, GA, Vision 2 Hear serves the world with the Gospel of Christ.
Vision 2 Hear has made an impact on my entire family. I have watched my shy daughter become very sure of herself, even to the point of traveling on a mission trip to Miami. I've watched my husband become passionate about ministry again by being able to run sound for the teams and doing whatever necessary to make things run smooth. I have found great joy in being a leader on the Southside of Atlanta. Seeing our teams grow and expand in order to share God's love is amazing. I am grateful for the chance to be a part of something so wonderful. Watching a performance will touch your heart, your mind, sometimes your body, and especially your soul. It happens for me even in practices. Creatively communicating Christ through sign and movement - truly must be experienced!
I saw W.A.V.E team perform at my church. I was over whelmed by there performance and wanted to be apart of something so amazing. I though it would be a chance to spend time with my children as well. My daughter in law Kearston Bohannon was ready to be apart of it as well. We joined the team and have been blessed ever since. It has been an awesome growing experience with myself as well as the Peeps on the teams.
I saw Vision 2 Hear at New vision church in Fayetteville Ga. I was immediately pumped and signed up to learn, I could not keep up with the young kids so I could not perform. Nonetheless I have been learning on my own online. Hope to use it to get people in my community involved. what an awesome way to spread the truth and glorify our Lord.
I saw the W.A.V.E team perform for the first time at my church in Fayetteville, GA. I was awe struck!!! I fell in love and felt so moved and motivated to learn so that I could perform and minister myself. I started attending practices and have had one performance so far and I cant begin to tell you how amazing it feels to be a part of this wonderful way to worship!!! My mother-in-law also got involved and she loves it just as much! We have several upcoming performances all over Georgia as well as a couple out of state and I am so looking forward to spreading the Word of God through this music and dance. I thank George and New Vision so much for this amazing opportunity!!!!
I love Vision 2 Hear! Joining this nonprofit ministry has literally changed my entire life! From being more outgoing, to knowing what career field I want to go into! Ministry!
Vision 2 Hear is great for all ages, all walks of life, for anyone and everyone. Whether this is for a church event, retreat, school chapel, outdoor activity, or anything inbetween V2H is HIGHLY recommended. I have served and worked with them for 5+ years and whenever I have an activity where there is an opening, I do not hesitate to give them contact info for V2H. Each event I coordinate, I plan specifically with the leaders to make sure they will be available to come. The staff are very friendly and easy to work with in any circumstance. This is a huge ministry that is changing lives, not only of the participants but also of others they encounter around the world.
