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

About This Organization

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

Victory averages 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.
