Thank you for your generosity!
While there is no concrete definition for the word “selah”, various texts interpret the word to mean a moment to stop and listen or pause and reflect.
As we step into each new year, we like to pause, listen, and reflect on the past 12 months of life and ministry. In doing this, we see God’s hand and we are overwhelmed with gratitude for all He has done. Also, our hearts overflow with thankfulness for you, our Victory Church family. Aside from it being God’s will and grace, anything accomplished through Victory was largely due to your commitment to your faith—and your support and generosity.
A Look At 2022….
Christmas Gift to The World
Our annual Christmas Gift to the World offering brought in a phenomenal $840,000! This amazing gift went directly toward our recipients Tackle the Shackles and Projects for Progress. Through Christmas Gift to the World, Tackle the Shackles will be able to establish a new center for prisoner rehabilitation by creating a home that embodies the love of Jesus and provides living spaces, training and coaching to help former prisoners as they transition back into society. Your giving also went to help Jace and Sarah Rabe of Projects for Progress to help build churches, make disciples, and plant the Gospel in an area that is predominantly Muslim in Benin, West Africa.
In 2022, we had the opportunity to share the Gospel and impact real change in West Africa and right here in the U.S. Over the years, we’ve given more than $83 million to advance the Kingdom. Let’s keep it going and give our very best! Thank you for giving as the Lord leads you.
We’re committed to reaching beyond the four walls and into the needs of our nation and the world. Your contributions to the Heart of the House initiative have enabled us to take part in many world-changing projects.
