We desire to honor God in every area of life. Our starting point, goal, and motive is the honor of God. This is foundational for understanding why we do what we do. It is all about Him, not us.
We follow Jesus and help others follow Him. We make disciples by engaging culture and community, establishing biblical foundations, equipping believers to minister, and empowering disciples to make disciples.
In June 1984, Rice Broocks, Al Manamtam, and Steve and Deborah Murrell led a team of sixty-five American university students on a one-month summer mission trip in Manila’s University Belt. After two weeks of meetings at the Girl Scouts Auditorium on Padre Faura, the new church, consisting of about 150 high school and university students, moved into the basement of the Tandem Theater on Recto Avenue. From this original group of 150, Victory has planted churches across the Philippines and is now composed of thousands of students, professionals, and families. We have Victory group leaders who lead discipleship groups weekly in campuses, coffee shops, homes, and offices.
In 1994, Rice Broocks, Phil Bonasso, and Steve Murrell met in Manila, Philippines, to explore ways to cooperate in campus ministry, church planting, and world missions. This meeting resulted in the birthing of Every Nation, a worldwide church-planting movement with a vision to establish churches and campus ministries in every nation. Victory is a founding member of this global family.
Since its founding, Victory has sent Filipino campus missionaries and church planters to serve as cross-cultural missionaries to countries across the globe. Besides these long-term missionaries, Victory has also sent numerous teams for short-term missions to reach every campus and every nation.
