We are a light for the nations!

Whether we’re feeding the homeless right here in Lakeland or conducting a medical clinic in South Africa, we realize the importance of Missions. We don’t go as merely fixers, we go as servant-learners because we understand that it is through serving AND learning that homes are built, victims comforted, children rescued, and lives changed.

Kid’s Club

This after-school and Saturday outreach program takes ministry straight into Lakeland’s toughest inner-city neighborhoods on a daily basis, reaching 300-400 kids, plus their families, each week. Volunteers conduct a high-energy kids’ service to teach God’s life-changing word. Volunteer opportunities are available where you can change the lives of Lakeland's Kids.

Lakeland Community Outreach

The Dream Center

We invested roughly $500,000 in constructing this Christian Community Center in Lakeland’s most difficult inner-city area, and continue to contribute about $75,000 annually toward its operation. Volunteers tutor and mentor children in after-school programs, parents are given parenting skills, financial training, substance abuse awareness, and more. People are cared for, loved, and presented with the hope that only Jesus provides!

Circle J – Summer Camp

Victory takes very seriously the privilege of hosting a three-week summer camp that impacts 600+ inner-city kids each year. Kids receive two balanced meals daily, classes, western shows with a Christ-centered message, a weekly carnival, a T-shirt, and tons of attention. They are shown what the love of Jesus really looks like! If you'd like to donate or volunteer, call Pastor Theresa at 863.859.6000 ext. 406.

November & December

Salvation Army

Each year, Thanksgiving – Christmas Eve, Victory Church schedules bell-ringers to ring the Salvation Army bell and collect donations at two Wal-Mart locations. Over the past seven years, we have raised $128,232 for this organization, through the faithfulness and commitment of our volunteers. Sign up information is available in the weekly bulletin, beginning shortly before Thanksgiving, and a table will be set up in the lobby to make sign up easy and quick.

World Missions

Summers | Various Locations

Missions Trips

Missions trips provide an invaluable opportunity for us to serve others and grow in our personal walk at the same time. Each year, Victory Church takes 1-2 mission trips with trip dates being announced a few months prior to the event. On a recent trip, we sent approximately 90 people to Managua, Nicaragua, to help missionaries Nathan & Christine Alfaro with construction, evangelism, a medical clinic, and children’s ministries. If you'd like more information, call 863-859-6000.

Each November

World Missions Conference

Each year in November, Victory Church sets aside two weeks as we focus our attention on both home and world missions. Keynote missionary speakers are invited to share their heart and teach us how we can join them in prayer and financial support. We also invite missionaries to speak in our VictoryLife Sunday School classes, which provides an opportunity for you to meet missionaries in person and hear about their ministry first-hand.

Journals are available at the Info Desk

Missionary Prayer Journal

One of the greatest ways you can be involved in missions at Victory, is by perusing our missions prayer journal, familiarizing yourself with the missionaries and organizations we support, and making a commitment to prayer & financial support of these vital efforts.

Missionary Adoption

Each year, we also encourage everyone to “adopt” a missionary or missionary family. This does not involve any additional financial resources; it’s simply a great way to pray, correspond, and get to know one missionary family. If you need suggestions for ways to stay in touch with our missionaries, or need further information, please call 863.859.6000 ext. 222, or click here and send us an email.
