Empowering People. Repowering Communities.

Who we are

New Vision is a Christian Community Development Organization working to ReEnergize Communities. It evolved from a rich 50 year history of ministry and development in rural communities in Appalachia and around the country.

New Vision was birthed in 2009 out of a friendship between an independent-minded, renewable energy innovator and a Christian Community Development leader who was looking for new ways to help people help themselves. As a result of this relationship, renewable energy became the vehicle for this truly unique outreach model.

New Vision's home base, research and training center, "The Innovation Station", is located on Chestnut Ridge in North Central West Virginia, a small community rich in ingenuity, creativity and skills. We are everyday people with an extraordinary vision for helping others recognize and use their God-given talents to do great things wherever they are.

We believe that God has given us the natural resources and human ingenuity to develop innovative, sustainable and renewable energy solutions in communities all over the world. New Vision brings renewable energy technology to people who will benefit the most; who would otherwise not be able to afford and/or implement this vital tool.

As a non-profit organization, we work locally and globally with faith-based and community organizations to get renewable products into the hands of our members and partners at a rate that is affordable. We also provide the training they need to produce their own renewable energy systems.

We offer a completely New Vision for both helping to solve energy issues while strengthening community relationships and involvement.

Welcome to new vision

All I can say is sunny days are even sunnier when you're able to generate electricity at the same time you're drinking iced tea; and things that are considered waste products become the engine of development for Aquaponics gardens and Biodiesel production.

Everywhere I go there seems to be a natural curiosity about new ways to solve old problems, “what will we eat, what will we drink and where will we stay at night?”  Our hope is together, to help people solve some of the basic life questions in their own communities, drawing from the knowledge and skills of others.

We encourage you to join the movement, become a part of the solution, share your questions and ideas and together we believe it is possible to reenergize communities with 21st century renewable solutions.

Jesus said, “All things are possible to those who believe" (Mark 9:23). I encourage you to keep on believing and let's show the world  what is possible together.
