Van Fielden has been Vista’s senior pastor since 1999. He has served in churches from a variety of Christian traditions which brings a balanced, interdenominational approach to his teaching and ministry. Van creates a relaxed, straightforward, and unpretentious atmosphere for teaching God's Word. He is committed to keeping his messages biblical, personal, practical and encouraging. His heart's desire is to "connect people with God."
Van and his wife, Deb, have three children- Bekah, Hannah and Jon, and grandfather of five.
Deb is Office Manager at Vista. She is the one who helps "connect the dots" to keep the office and facility running smoothly. She manages the calendar and the facility use requests. She also helps those who are new begin to connect with God and others. Her organizational gifts serve Vista as she manages the Sunday morning volunteers. She wants everyone to feel that we are expecting them as they arrive, and welcome them into our Vista family.
She and Van have a heart for marriage and lead the "re|engage" program. They love to see couples grow in their love for one another...in every season.
She and Van have 3 grown children: Two married daughters who live outside of the state and one son who lives in Orlando. They have 5 precious grandchildren and another on the way.
Jon oversees Vista's worship ministry including the overall execution of the Sunday worship experience. He is also the Director of Growth. His passion is to see the depths of Christ's love for sinners displayed for all to see. Jon is married to Tery-Ann and they have a son Clive.
