Meet the Staff at New Vision



Carlene Nisley

Lead Pastor


Carlene’s approach to ministry is to be a servant leader.  She is authentic in her relationship with others and she preaches with passion in a way that makes God’s Word applicable to our everyday lives.  Her focus on growing in relationship with God, growing in community with each other, and making a difference in our world through action has become the mantra of the church family at New Vision.  Carlene’s enthusiasm is contagious, as she proclaims God’s vision for the church.  She says, “God desires followers who will obediently go where he is leading.  He has promised to do greater things than we can even imagine if we follow obediently.  It is an exciting time to be part of the family at New Vision!"

Pastor Carlene has been Senior Pastor of New Vision since October 2014.  She was ordained in 2011 and graduated from George Fox Seminary with a Master of Arts in Ministry Leadership in 2013.

Carlene is married to her husband, Ted. They have three grown children, two daughters and one son, who are each married to wonderful spouses. They have 3 grandchildren.  In her spare time she loves being with family, playing with her grandkids, camping, reading, and participating in any activity that allows her to soak up some sunshine.
