Who We Are

Vision | Mission | Value

We were made to glorify God through our hearts and actions

"…everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made.” Isaiah 43:7 

"In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven." Matt. 5:16

"So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God." 1 Corin. 10:31

We believe in glorifying God by…

Amplifying

our relationship with God.

Building

our relationships as a church family.

Cultivating

relationships in our local and global communities.

Youth/Young Adult Pastor
Kevin Matsuguma

Kevin started at Victory in September 2014 as an Associate Pastor for youth and young adults. He has lived in the South Bay all his life and attended Casimir Middle School and North High School. Kevin graduated from UCLA with a degree in Economics, but did not get much use out of it, as God called him into full time ministry a few years out of college. He received an M. Div from Talbot School of Theology and served for many years as a youth director before coming to Victory. Kevin is excited to be here working with the youth and young adults. He, along with his wife, Ayumi, and their two children Klay and Sadie love the friendly family atmosphere at Victory.
