2014 is the year that marks the sixth anniversary of attending 'Nu Vision' for Lonnie Collins - who's now a deacon.

"My mother had me in church but at that time I wasn't in church," Collins said.

"I was out in the world and my mother was a member here and I came to visit and I seen something different than anything else I had ever seen while I was running," Collins said.

The 'something different' he's referring to is the style of service.

But looking at the church's name alone it's clear that something is different. The word 'new' is instead spelled 'nu'.

"Because the lord showed me initially when the Lord god blessed me to start the church that it need to have a new vision, a new mindset, a new direction to take the church," Pastor Charles Richardson said.

Pastor Richardson adds that the approach includes using plain and clear language in sermons simple enough that the children can understand from an early age.

But it's also about open-ness, Pastor Richardson said.

For about two decades Pastor Richardson lost control of his life to his addictions. That was until one night in detox (June 30, 1994, he recalled) when he turned his life over to God.

"In short, I never looked back. I never looked back another day. I know that God is real. That's how I know that God moves knowing where I was and where he brought me from," Pastor Richardson said.

"He brought me from nothing and made me into something," Pastor Richardson said.

He now co-pastors with his wife and even his son - who's in his 20s - is involved in preaching. But the message of the church also spreads through its members.

"I understood I was running to be unhappy. And when I see someone and I can see that I can say 'Hey, you're running to be unhappy. If you just learn to surrender and embrace a loving God then he can do the same thing for you that he did for me'," Collins said.

"And it's not just here at 'Nu Vision'," Pastor Richardson adds, "but every church that's open in the name of Jesus will begin to receive a supernatural harvest in this season."

"And it's going to be a harvest of progression," Pastor Richardson said.

Most of the church members are not from the neighborhood where the church is located but Pastor Richardson said currently the congregation is openly evangelizing in the area.
