Our Story

Our Story

Victory’s story is three decades in the making, beginning when our Lead and Founding Pastors Pete and Debbie Leal returned from their ministry responsibilities in South Carolina. In 1987 they heeded the prompting of the Holy Spirit to begin a work in their native region of Middletown, Connecticut.

Shortly after returning to Connecticut, Victory was born as a weekly bible study with just one individual in a living room. Victory quickly outgrew the living room and a small legion hall was rented while the church prayed, believed, and prepared for the land the Lord had promised.

After seven years of waiting, the land became available and Victory obtained the site on which we currently reside and operate. This was not without its challenges as the church labored for two and a half years to fund and transform the property from its battered state into the beautiful building we have today!

Pastor Pete and Debbie continue to this day in serving, impacting, teaching, and leading our church family and now oversee over 200 churches and ministries in many nations around the world. They are also joined by both of their children in the ministry where Pastor Petey Leal Jr. functions as an Associate Pastor and leads our Youth Ministry and Amy Grant operates as our Worship, Arts, and Communications Director.
