When most people think of missions they imagine hoping on a plan and traveling to some far away country. But missions can and should start right here in our very own communities.
The mandate of VCI Missions is to give a hand up and out of poverty, not just a hand out. That doesn’t just apply to a 3rd world nation. It also applies to right here at home, right outside our own doors. Sometimes it can be easier to pour our hearts, our time and our money into an overseas missions project or program, but we can’t neglect those within our own reach. Sometimes they are the most unreached community of all.
Victory is committed to reaching EVERY available person by ANY available means.
