Victory Family Church Work Environment & Culture

Victory Family Church is a wonderful place to work, offering a relaxed and casual atmosphere combined with an intense desire to reach this generation with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We are serious about impacting our world, yet we have a lot of fun doing it. We are a busy, growing ministry that is constantly evolving to meet the demands of ministry. Having grown by 151% in four years (going from an average of 940 in April 2006 to a November 2009 average of 2360), we've been doing a lot of running! We do not anticipate that changing, rather we expect that to increase as we continue to build and continue to reach people. Again, we have a lot of fun but work hard while we do it.
