    Why We Love This Opportunity

    God has done great things over 30+ years of ministry, and the best days of ministry fruitfulness are still ahead.

    There is a great foundation of skilled team members in place representing many years of impacting ministry at Victory. This serves as a launching point for a dynamic future as people are coming back to church after COVID. There is a large vision for a great season ahead. Victory is getting ready for a major building renovation, and a sizable church-wide technology upgrade.

    The church is located between Tampa and Orlando, FL. Lakeland has been recognized as an “All American City.” It’s a friendly mid-size city of 250,000, with all of the amenities.

    About This Organization

    Victory Church launched in March 1989. From day one, the church has had a heart to reach lost people. Victory is truly known as Lakeland’s ‘community church’. In 2006 Victory launched the South Campus which is thriving today as they meet in a movie theater.

    In 2020 (pre-COVID), Victory averaged approximately 3,000 in weekend attendance. They occupy 170,000 square ft of permanent buildings, located on 85 acres.

    Every person is encouraged to live a life of personal evangelism. Victory gives about $1.5 million each year to advance the gospel locally and globally. They support 240 missionaries around the world, and partner with 47 missional organizations. The Dream Center and inner-city Kids Club program are known city-wide for having a tremendous impact on the community.

    Coming out of COVID, in-person participation continues to rise. The leadership of the church anticipates a great ministry focus heading into the Fall of 2021.
