In 1970 Wayman and Nelda Mitchell moved to Prescott to take over a small, struggling congregation. Shortly after arriving, God saved several young hippies who were very different from anyone in the church. But as they were welcomed, God began to pour out His Spirit on the congregation. As Pastor Mitchell sought to reach young people, they saw the possibilities of the “coffee-house” concert ministry. At the first concert, they ever tried as an evangelistic tool, more than 200 young people attended, with many saved. Out of this, a regular concert ministry was birthed. 2 nights a week, bands played, testimonies of salvation were given, and the Gospel was preached, with many being saved each night.
In September of 1989 the vision continued when Pastor Ronald Meyer and his wife Bridget moved to Jacksonville with their family and a hope…that many would come to know the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. We have been reaching the Jacksonville Area and beyond for over 25 years. Our heartbeat is to continue to plant churches and send missionaries to regions beyond.
Victory Chapel is a Christian Fellowship Ministries' Church (CFM). CFM, Inc. was founded in 1970 by Pastor Wayman Mitchell. A spiritual fire was launched that is spanning the globe. Now, over 2,700 churches have been planted in over 130 nations of the world with the number growing daily. From that, crusades and conferences sprung up that are touching tens of thousands every year. This church is a product of that vision and is working to see it expanded in the short time that remains before Jesus' return. God has given us a vision for the day we live in. Our message is simple, yet it is the cornerstone of all truth. Jesus Christ is the only hope for man's salvation and that is true with every person in every nation on the globe. In a world full of empty dreams and false promises is a truth which grows stronger every year, and that is Jesus Christ and Him crucified!
In our local church, God has given us a powerful revival of men and we are obeying the command by Jesus in Matthew 28:19 to "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations..." As we have grown as a church, men have grown into leadership roles which have been the foundation of our Church council. Each of our Council members has been with us since at or near the beginning of our foundation and also play active roles in church ministry positions.

Rick & Brianne Kleiber
Pastor Rick Kleiber is privileged to serve as an Assistant Pastor on staff at the Jacksonville church with his wife Brianne. Rick Kleiber came to Florida by way of the US Navy and his life was filled with alcohol, anger, broken relationships and a trail of bad decisions before one night crying out to God on his bedroom floor. The next day someone from the Victory Chapel Jacksonville church witnessed to him, invited him to church and he sealed his decision at an altar and has served God since 2000. Rick and his wife Brianne met, dated and were married in the Jacksonville church and have been married for over 17 years. They have had the privilege to serve in the Teen Ministry for 10 years making an impact in the lives of local youth, transitioning into Adult Bible Study ministry in which they worked to help couples and adults grow closer to God. Desiring to prepare their lives for the harvest field Rick and Brianne served as Door Directors for 3 years and in 2015 were launched into the harvest field to pioneer a church in DeLand, Florida. Most recently in November 2018, they accepted the opportunity to relocate back to Jacksonville to help assist as the Jacksonville church continues to build a culture of evangelism, discipleship and church planting.
Having both experienced God’s saving grace and faithfulness Rick and Brianne have the vision to see people of all ages and background come to know Christ in a personal way, build a foundation in Christ and go on to fulfill the vision that He has for their lives. They invite you to come experience Christ in a personal way and want you to know that you are never too far gone or too broken to cry out to Jesus. Rick and Brianne currently reside in the Oakleaf area of Jacksonville, Florida along with their 2 daughters Jayrell and Elle and 2 sons Landon and Jake.
