In 2015, God gave Pastor Otis Petteway the vision to start Bible Study in the Lake Jackson area. On December 5, 2015, the first Bible Study began under the name of Genesis Lake Jackson. During this time, the Bible Study was under the oversight of The Genesis Church in Houston, Texas where Dr. Michael P. Williams is Pastor. Weekly Bible Studies were held every Thursday night at 7 PM with Pastor Petteway as Campus Pastor of the Lake Jackson location. The Bible Study was affectionately known as “Thursday Night Live”. The first worship of service was a New Year’s Eve celebration in 2016. After much prayer, Bible Study was moved to the Lake Jackson Civic Center and was held every Tuesday night. It was at the Civic Center that the birth of some of Victory’s community outreach programs was formed. We had our inaugural “Trunk or Treat” and another New Year's Eve celebration service that was hosted at the Greater St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church in Brazoria, Texas.
When Hurricane Harvey flooded the Brazoria County area in August 2016, we partnered with local churches to provide food, clothing and cleaning supplies to members of the community. In the summer of 2018, Pastor Petteway began to meet with Dr. Williams about the vision that God had shown him for a church lead by Pastor Petteway named Victory Community Church.
In September 2018, we began to host “The Victory Experience” services and through the Lord’s guides and many prayers on October 28, 2018, Pastor Petteway released the vision of the Victory Community Church. In November 2018, Pastor Petteway met with a group of believers to plan the 2019 launch of the Victory Community Church in Lake Jackson, Texas.
On Sunday, January 6, 2019, the Victory Community Church held its inaugural service. Pastor Petteway preached his vision of the ministry where we will place Jesus back at the center of the family and the community. At this service many families united with the Victory community church. Services were held at the Clarion Inn in Lake Jackson Texas for six months. While in a meeting with the mayor of Lake Jackson pastor Petteway received a call that a location in Angleton Texas was available and looking for a renter. Trusting God the leaders went to the location and began to pray and share this exciting news with the current congregation.
On Sunday, July 14, 2019 Victory Commuinty Church moved to 744 E. Henderson Rd. after being able to raise funds and get donations for all the equipment and furniture needed for the location. While on Henderson Road we held our first back to school giveaway, Thanksgiving giveaway, an angel tree Drive.
In early 2020 a lot change for the ministry and the world with Covid. For the first time we were moved from our physical location to completely virtual. What is the time seem like a major obstacle to overcome God continue to show favor in the ministry continue to grow. Families were added we were still able to give back to the community we hosted a food giveaway, mask drive and gave away school supplies during covid.
On Sunday, July 6, 2021 the ministry was on the move again moving to 202 Kiber St. in Angleton Texas. Unlike the children in the wilderness we feel like God has given us the promised land we plan to continue to grow and implement more programs and strategies to help grow the community as well as a ministry while possessing the land.
