Chris Pratt


Pastor Chris believes God has called him to mobilize a movement of believers to live beyond themselves and reach the world for Christ.  After graduating from Chowan University with a business degree, God opened the path for Chris to serve in Christian Education.  For the next 13 years, Chris served as a teacher, coach, Athletic Director, and Principal.  

In 2014, Chris' heart broke for the local church and God opened the door for him to begin serving the next four years on staff at a church, while obtaining his Master's Degree from Bible Baptist Seminary.  God began birthing a desire to pastor a life-giving church and in 2018, he answered that call and became the lead pastor at Vision. He and his wife, Mandy, married in 2006 and they have one amazing daughter named Lily.   Pastor Chris loves coffee, candy, anything Apple makes, NC State, escape rooms and exists to point people to life in Jesus Christ.

Heather Alwran

Kids Ministry Director

Heather and her family joined Vision in July of 2020. They knew the moment they walked in that they were home. Heather loves children and loves discipling kids and students. She has been feeling God's calling on her life to minister to kids since she had her own son in 2018.

So she took her years of experience with children and spiritual gifts, combined them to allow the Holy Spirit to use her where He saw fit. Heather loves God, her family and church family. She is very excited to see life change in little hearts as well as to help other parents in discipleship from home. If she is not at Vision then you can probably find her running, hiking or biking on a trail. She also loves spending time with her family at the beach and connecting with God's people.
