Victory Baptist Church was founded 46 years ago, originally meeting in the Casa Grande Women’s Club, then moving to a location on Pottebaum. Since 1989, Victory has been blessed to meet at 1225 E Cottonwood Ln.
But we understand that ‘church’ isn’t the building that we meet in. Church refers to the people — the family of believers that comes together to serve and to worship. Victory Baptist Church is a family made up of people from all different backgrounds, united by one thing: faith in Christ Jesus.
Through so many years of ministering, our Church has seen the faithful hand of God in our highs and our lows. We have had times of growth, times of loss, times of abundance, and times of struggle. But through it all, Christ has been more than sufficient and we are excited to see how He will continue to lead.
Pastor Terry Green and his wife Kathy have served at Victory since the summer of 1998. Before becoming a pastor, Terry was a Sergeant in the Marine Corps and later a business manager. He previously pastored in another community in Arizona and served on the staff of a church and Bible college in Texas. He also serves as an adjunct instructor for International Baptist College & Seminary in Chandler.
He loves that his days are full and busy, and he loves to get outside to walk or hike whenever he can. Pastor Green feels blessed to be serving at Victory, and especially loves the faithfulness of so many members actively serving the Lord and ministering to people. He’s excited by the fact that the people of Victory bless our community and exalt Jesus Christ.
Kathy teaches our Youth Class and Ladies’ Bible Studies, and serves in our music program. With their 5 kids grown, she spends her days ministering, practicing instruments, reading, and writing. She loves how the people of Victory sing joyfully in our worship services and are willing to serve God in the church.
The Greens enjoy spending time with their 5 adult children, who are each serving the Lord faithfully in their own local churches, and their 8 grandchildren.
An alumna of the University of Arizona, Meagan Sundust loves the little details. She keeps up with the church office administrative tasks, assists the pastor, serves in music and children’s ministries, and is growing in her knowledge of technological work. Meagan also has a passion for encouraging hurting women to find hope in the Lord. When she’s not in the office or serving at church, you can find her up to her elbows in a craft project, journaling, or singing in the car with her two daughters.
In the New Testament, the word deacon is used to describe those who are ministering and serving to help strengthen the church. Our deacons and their wives pray diligently for the people in our Victory Baptist family and contact them regularly. They help Pastor Green not only to care for the members of Victory, but also to oversee the ministries of the church.
