Our church family spans over multiple locations in Northeast Ohio & Western Pennsylvania. We are people of all ages and a mixture of many ethnic backgrounds. Dress at any of our locations tends to be business-casual, but there is always a mixture of ties, blue jeans and shorts. Services are an hour and a half in length with twenty-five to thirty-five minutes of praise and worship. Our music is a blend of old and new and we use a variety of instruments to aid us in our worship to the Father. We are a Presence driven church.  Our desire is to usher in His presence and let Holy Spirit have His way. 

Loving God, People & Life

We are committed to the healthy balance of hearts that pursue God, value the supernatural, love the mysteries of God along with valuing the integrity of leading well and doing business in the spirit of excellence. Loving God completely, loving people unconditionally, and loving life enthusiastically is who we are at VCC based upon Matthew 22:36-40 and John 10:10b. 

Where We Started

 Victory Christian Center began as Coitsville First Assembly of God church. 46 people gathered on a Sunday morning June 25th, 1978. That same evening the 25 voting members asked  26 year old David Thomas  to become their pastor. No one BUT GOD could have imagined what would occur over these years to see the now Victory Christian Center be one church, many locations!
