If you are new to Victory Life Church, our Growth Track class provides a great way to learn more about the basics of how you can grow deeper in your faith while also discerning how God might want to use you.

401: Using what God Gave You - In 401, you will connect to the opportunities available at Victory Life Church to serve God and His Kingdom by using your God-given talents and abilities.
When does Growth Track happen?
Growth Track happens about 6 times per year. Our church website (vlchurch.com) provides information on next (Growth Track) session. We hope to see you soon!
To go deeper in your faith and relationship to others, consider participating in a “Life” group or a “Life” class. Some people enjoy a large church because of the many ministries they offer while others prefer a small, intimate church. In I Corinthians 9:22, the Apostle Paul said: “whatever a person is like, I try to find common ground with him so he will let me tell him about Christ.” That is our goal in Life Groups/Classes, to connect with others so we can share Christ within the setting of deep and meaningful friendship and relationship.
How Life Groups and Classes work
1. A Variety of groups
Our groups/classes are as varied as we are! Our Small Group/Class leaders use their gifts and passions to create groups that allow others to join with them in serving God. Whatever the age, interest, or location there is one that is just right for you.
2. Three semesters
New groups/classes start and stop three times a year - spring, summer, and fall semesters. Each semester is kicked off with an online Life Group Directory. Note: Summer is coming, therefore, stay tuned for our summer sessions that will begin in Mid-may! Info will be available on our website: vlchurch.com.
During the summer, we offer Bible and BBQ groups. The purpose of these groups is simple - to connect God’s people by gathering together during the nice summer (Ohio) weather! The concept is based on on Acts 2:42, which says, “And they (believers) devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.” As such, these Bible and BBQ groups are defined by the following elements:
- Fellowship – Conversation, connection and getting to know one another
- Meal – Enjoying a meal together
- Prayer – Praying with and for one another
- God’s word – Open up God’s word to discuss how it working in your life
Info will be available on our website in early May: vlchurch.com!

Victory Life Students:
Victory Life Students is the student ministry of Victory Life Church. The heart and vision of VLS is to point students to Jesus who writes every life story. The age group of the ministry is grades 7th-12th. Our main gatherings called, “Youth Nights” take place on Sunday evenings from 5pm-7pm. Youth Nights consist of worship, a message and after parties which provide a space for community and for students to grow together. Our desire is for students to grow in their giftings and grow closer to Jesus.
Are you as student who wants to serve in Victory Life Students?
We believe this ministry is FOR the students and have provided opportunities for them to get connected and to serve in areas such as:
- Worship Team: Leads our students into worship on Youth Nights.
- Production Team: Runs sound, lighting, and visuals during our Youth Nights.
- Greeting & Café Team: Welcomes our students as they walk in the door and runs our student led café.
- Student influencers: Students learn how to follow Jesus and to use their influence to impact others.
- Creative Team: This team takes pictures, videos, creates graphics and runs our social media for our student ministry.
As one uses their gifts to bring glory to Jesus, they also are making an impact amongst their peers, their world, and the world around them. This is how we have decided to help students feel welcome and belong in a ministry that they feel comfortable inviting their friends as well.
