A CHURCH PLANTING VISION
Victory Churches was founded because of a strongly held conviction about the role of Five Fold Ministry in the church today. Coupled with this was the knowledge that the most successful evangelistic method today was the planting of new churches. We realized that by finding a way to more fully release Five fold ministry gifts we could unleash an explosion of church planting and evangelism.
The result was the formation of Victory Churches of Canada International – a church planting movement with an apostolic/prophetic vision. From just five local churches in 1979 to a global movement our priority is still the raising of Five Fold ministries and the planting of vigorous new churches.
Church planters need a variety of skills: things like organizational abilities, prayer, team leadership, strong preaching, advertising and PR, renovation, and motor mechanics just to name a few! More than these, church planters need to have the ability to carry a vision, keep themselves and a team focussed and moving forward, and stay under the direction of the Holy Spirit at all times.
VCOCI provides extensive training for church planters. Church planting schools, Finishing Edge Courses and Victory Bible College courses cover every aspect of planting from conception to ongoing regional relationships.
