Ministry Profile for Pastor Crawford and First Lady Brenda Crawford
People often approach Pastor Crawford to seek guidance and to ask questions about the ministry here at New Vision. Some take the opportunity to share how the ministry has blessed them, while others share how they have experienced a fresh perspective of God’s word as preached and taught by Pastor Ron. Many say that the ministry has made a difference in the quality of life they choose to live.
Pastor Ron is very transparent in his personal relationship with Christ, and in his ministry calling. It encourages many to continue to seek God’s guidance and to faithfully accept God’s provision for their life.
Often, Pastor Ron will share personal life experiences as a husband, father and minister as an example of how God continually perfects our walk in Christ. He values his family and believes they are the proving ground God uses to evaluate whether or not his faith is genuine.
His wonderful wife, Brenda also loves the Lord; and she lives and depends on God’s faithfulness. Like Paul in Philippians 1:6, she feels”… confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.”
Brenda, is Pastor’s helpmate. She brings to the body of New Vision a quiet yet intuitive spirit that compliments the teachings and vision of the ministry. As pastor’s wife, she is his friend and encourager in the myriad of responsibilities involved in leading such an exciting and vibrant ministry as New Vision. Brenda is most energized when being used by the Lord in building up of His kingdom. She ministers with her husband here at New Vision. She is also a discipleship leader and leads the women’s ministry, Jewels Anointed by God (TJAG), at New Vision.
While ministry and family are full time responsibilities and a top priority for Pastor and his wife, they do reserve time for relaxation. Pastor and Brenda enjoy many of the same sports, vacationing spots, and other outdoor activities.
Pastor Crawford firmly believes that trusting in the Lord to continually provide all that he needs to navigate through life is critical to his Christian walk and in leading others to Christ. He is very active in the ministry, testifying about the provision of God. And, how the word of God lights the pathway of his life. He makes it known all too well that it is through his personal relationship with Jesus Christ that he’s afforded the Father’s grace daily. It is the impetus behind any past, present or future accomplishments he will make. Pastor Ron’s aspiration is to be an effective steward of the spiritual gifts that God has given him, in order to fulfill the work of the ministry, in his life. He has an innovative and transparent style in teaching and preaching the gospel. It provides real life answers for real life circumstances that enable people to apply God’s principles to their life through practical application on a daily basis. The benefits of doing so can be heard in testimonials from New Vision members and guests as they share how Pastor Crawford’s teaching and preaching is empowering.
