The Perhams moved to the southwest valley in August of 2004, after nine years in youth ministry at Heritage Baptist Church in Woodbridge, VA.

Vision Baptist Church held its first service on October 3, 2004, in the conference room at the Holiday Inn Express on Litchfield Road in Goodyear, AZ. There were 57 people from the community in attendance that Sunday morning with 6 people turning to the Lord for salvation.

After six months, the Lord opened the way for Vision to move into the facilitites at Millennium High School where we met for 4 1/2 years. In October 2009, Vision moved to its present location at Desert Thunder Elementary.

The Lord has provided for Vision in so many ways! We currently offer three services a week, a Sunday school ministry, mid-week childrens ministry, and a Christian school ministry.


Vision currently has a building fund and is praying and investigating opportunities for a permanent facility in the southwest valley.
