Greetings Victory Partners & Friends! The bible says one person chase a thousand enemies away and two people chase ten thousand away. Mathematically, this makes no sense but in the spirit realm, it’s the only way to go! Most people are hesitant about Small Groups UNTIL their first experience, why is that? There is something special about a group of believers coming together to learn more about Jesus. In the process, NEW relationships are built, revelations are had & simply put, lives are changed...ALL from attending a Small Group!
Join the Small Group Ministry at our next Getting to Know Small Groups to learn what small groups are all about on Sunday, November 29th at 3 pm. This will be an interactive experience with our leaders and you will be able to get your questions answered. We will also discuss the steps to become a Small Group Leader. Let’s finish this year strong by taking Dominion, TOGETHER. Register today at Victorygroups@victoryinchrist.cc & include the type of group you’d like to join or lead. Remember, life is truly better when you are Connected

This year’s Leadership Summit theme was entitled “Leadership In The Midst of Crisis.” This pandemic crisis that finds ourselves in has caused so many things to change as it pertains to our churches and ministries. As leaders, we must understand that leading in crisis is different from leading in non-crisis times. I want to share with you and your team, critical leadership truths, that are absolutely required for success or continued success in this new era we find ourselves in.
Some of the things we covered in the summit are:
- The several things leaders need in order to maximize their effectiveness during a crisis season.
- The four needs people have during a crisis.
- How Your decisions now, affect the aftermath of the crisis
- How to rally your volunteer base and strategize for a successful and safe reopening of your church facility. And so much more.

Twice a year, the small group ministry invites partners to “test drive” facilitating a small group. This experience builds confidence and affirms that everyone has leadership potential. While these groups are important to expanding our groups, we cannot vouch for short-term groups, as they have not gone through our training or agreed to the leadership standards in place (although we hope they eventually will).
