About this Ministry

David and Geri began this work, Victory Baptist Church (Igreja Batista Vitória), in 2002. God blessed with the funds to purchase a large piece of land on a major thoroughfare with a bus terminal across the street. He also blessed with the funds to immediately begin construction.

Many souls have been saved through the ministry in Londrina.

The long-term goal for this church is to get it up to 200-300 in attendance, build a building that will seat 250-300.

As in most South American countries, the biggest service of the week is the Sunday night service. There are many special services and events throughout the year including special services like Friend Day, Neighbor Day, Evangelistic Conferences, Easter Conferences, Missions month and Family seminars. There are also special events like the Mother-Daughter Tea and a Churchwide cookout for Father's Day.

The people are taught how to evangelize and encouraged to bring visitors to church with them.
