Visionary Centers International Ministry

Who We Are

We are a growing body of believers moving in renewal and the presence of God. We are a network of ministries, business leaders and artists with a common-unity of advancing the kingdom of God.

Our Core Mission

The core business of the ministry is the people and their relationship with God. Worship in daily life as well as corporate worship expressed through music and creative arts is our heart of loving Jesus, and we are serious about cultivating contagious intimacy with God. Our mandate is about bringing people into relationship with God through renewal, encounters in his presence, the teaching of the gospel of grace, inner healing as well as the full expression of the Holy Spirit. Evangelism is our lifestyle along with specific outreach and mentoring discipleship that follows to raise up leaders in the marketplace and the ministry for multiplication. Equipping, Teaching and Ministering through prayer and laying on of hands in weekly services with trained ministry teams and mentoring cell groups.

Our Story

Open Heavens Centers (OHC) was founded originally under Treasure Coast House of Prayer by Lynne Barletta in 2000. Growing quickly into a regional ministry, OHC established a beautiful center for the arts, coffee shop and sanctuary in Stuart, Florida. The hurricanes of 2004 lifted the roof off the building, and since there was a “wind clause” in their insurance policy, OHC lost everything. As visionary leaders, the Barlettas decided to begin again, and chose to expand the vision that nurtured relationships from Miami, FL, to York, PA, as the network of OHC. They continued, rebuilding after the loss. Visionary School of Arts began under VCI in 2010 and has experienced explosive growth as an arts outreach. See visionaryschoolofarts.com for more information. Lynne and Tony have a story to tell to many, and they speak in a variety of venues, including leadership training for the marketplace.
