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. Prior to becoming a pastor, Terry served as a Sergeant in the Marine Corps, then worked as a business manager. He previously served on the staff of a church and Bible college in Texas, and first pastored in a different community in Arizona. He also serves as an adjunct instructor for International Baptist College & Seminary in Chandler.
Although color-blind so that he ironically can’t see the green of all the things God’s put in His creation, Pastor Green loves to get outside to walk or hike whenever he can. He feels blessed to be serving at Victory, where many faithful members actively serve the Lord and minister to each other. He’s excited 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 kids grown, she spends her days ministering, practicing instruments, teaching piano lessons, reading, and writing. She loves how the people of Victory sing joyfully in our 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 14 grandchildren.
An alumna of the University of Arizona, Meagan Sundust loves the little details. She takes care of the office administrative tasks, assists the pastor, serves in music and children’s ministries, and is growing in knowledge of and experience with technology. (Check out her 2-Minute Tuesday encouragement videos here.) 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.
