VICTORYCHURCH seeks to know Christ and make Him known.  Together, we’re striving to become the kind of church described in the Bible – a church with relevant messages, heart-felt worship, honest friendships, sincere prayer, and compassionate care for those in need. In short, we’d like to have the kind of contagious Christianity that can influence and encourage our entire community, one life at a time.


The Student Ministries of VICTORYCHURCH consists of Student Church, our Middle & High School ministries, and Merge, our Young Adult ministry.  We have a high value on leadership, community, and establishing a missional perspective.  Our desire is to see students grow in community where everyone has a place to belong. Through our life groups we focus on discipleship and growth, as we desire to see students grasp a lifestyle of leadership.  We are committed to offering an opportunity for students to come to know Christ, grow deeper, and share Him with others as together we reach our city.
