What is the history of Victory Outreach?
Since their humble beginning in 1967, Victory Outreach grew from one church to a worldwide network of over 700 churches and ministries, with locations across America and in 30 countries from the Philippines to the Netherlands. They have grown into one of the largest inner-city ministries in the world meeting the needs of people from all walks of life.
For over 48 years, Victory Outreach has trained and equipped men and women to reach their full potential in life, whether it is establishing a church, building a career, or growing and nurturing a family.
The following timeline illustrates the growth and development of Victory Outreach International. In 1967, their vision was to reach East Los Angeles. This vision broadened to include California, then all of America, then the entire world.
Reaching Los Angeles
Victory Outreach began by Sonny and Julie by inviting drug addicts from their local community — people they did not know — into their own home. They shared the basic truth of the Gospel: God loves you and that he had the power to change their lives. Victory Outreach was born and began to flourish.
In the early 1970s, members of Pastor Sonny’s church felt an overwhelming sense of destiny: They dared to believe God and stepped out in faith starting Victory Outreach churches across California. They had little financial support, and in some cases, had no friends or contacts in cities they embraced as their own. Faith began to swell in the heart of every Victory Outreach member.
In the 1980s, Victory Outreach emerged to the forefront of mission-focused ministries. Churches were planted across America. Some of the churches began to grow and this success spurred the next daring move: A cross-cultural church planted in Amsterdam, Netherlands and in Mexico.
Reaching the World
From the 1990s onward, it has been a time of explosive growth for the ministry, both in the U.S.A. and abroad. Currently, a full one-third of all Victory Outreach churches planted are overseas which has added a strong international flair to the ministry. However, the primary focus of the ministry continues to be meeting needs within the inner cities of America.
They are poised on the brink of a new era of growth and development. The ministry of Victory Outreach is as exciting today as was the day it was founded over 48 years ago.
