OUR CHURCH HISTORY

In 1994, God blessed the ministry to purchase property in Gurley, Alabama. The property consisted of three and one half acres of land and an eighteen thousand square feet of facility. The ministry flourished! In 1997, the Lord revealed to Pastor Sledge that it was time for the ministry to move to the inner city of Huntsville, Alabama. In the latter part of 1998, the Lord spoke to Pastor to change the name of the ministry to Victory World Outreach. This name is conducive to the vision the Lord gave Pastor Sledge for His ministry. The name of the ministry was officially changed in early 1999.


On October 13, 1999, the vision of the inner city became a reality as the first service in Huntsville was held in the ministry’s new location, 4901 North Memorial Parkway. The ministry has been blessed at this location, and has grown to house several outreach ministries, including a successful childcare facility. However, God was not finished with His plan for Victory. In 2003, the ministry moved from its location into the divine hand and plan of God.

God’s plan led the ministry on a journey of tests and trials to span the next few years. During this time of proving, the ministry held services at several temporary locations, while holding fast to the promise of God and the written vision – to be an inner-city ministry. Ultimately, Victory returned victoriously to the location that God ordained, poised, ever vigilant and motivated to impact the world for Jesus Christ.
