My wife and I took two weeks off of work, for our annual teen summer camp and our fellowship bible conference. This was a major financial sacrifice for the both of us. We were willing to do this because we know that God has always helped us get through. The week of Bible conference, we received a call from our attorney. We received a settlement from an accident from two years ago. It was a miracle right on time. God is so faithful!

On January 17, 2019 I had a partial excision of a brain tumor done. Pastor Ron Meyer and Pastor Jeremy, along with the Victory Chapel congregation, have kept me in prayer. Every three months, I have an MRI to check the tumor. The tumor is dissipating. Thanks be to God! I am so thankful for a fellowship that prays! God is good!
I had been praying for a job for almost six months and that I would wait for God to move. A job opened up on NAS Jax. When I applied I was immediately declined, but God told me to wait on Him. I waited for two months and I got the job two weeks before I graduated. No matter what, wait on God because He answers prayers.
My name is Vontricia Woody. I was invited to Victory Chapel about six years ago. In the beginning I was saved for a year and a half. I ended up back sliding and leaving the church but about two months ago, June 2019, I was invited back. Immediately as I got saved again, I started to think about my dad who is serving life in prison. I have never met him face to face. I began to pray and ask God to reveal things to me about my dad and our situation. I reached out to my dad and on August 11, 2019 I took a trip to Cross City Correctional Institution to meet him for the first time. To hear that through it all he is saved and living for God did something to my faith. If my father can do it and be consistent, so can I. We are building a great relationship. I owe that all to God!
As a child, my grandmother told me to pray and to stay in touch with God. That He is my rock that never moves. In my life things happened that only God could take me through them and being alive now is proof that God is alive and real. It’s 2019 and I am living with cancer of the blood and bones. I was diagnosed in 2006 and God has been my rock from then on. When I was 13 years old, I was my own bone marrow donor, I prayed that day and it went well. Now I pray every day and God has replied every time. God is wonderful! There was in pain in my feet, I prayed again. When I woke up, all my pain was gone! Praise God!
I am Anastayzeia Green. I have been save for a wonderful 6 years now. Victory Chapel and the people that attend helped save my life. They aided in Gods orchestrated plan to bring me close to Him. God is good like that. I was lost, bound in a bad relationship, and had no hope for my future. I partied and drank to try and feel relief but it never lasted. One of my best friends changed her life after the passing of her mother. I began to watch how new she was. After she invited me to church a few times, I finally said yes on Easter of 2013. All I remember is that the service was good. I knew my life was not right. I truly felt God pull me and melt away the shame, hurt, and the pain of feeling like a failure. I was renewed, because of God’s love. I would like to say it was all great from that day with no hurts and doubts, but that would be a lie. God is still with me through it all though. He guides me and shields me from what I once was. Life is not perfect, He never promised that. He did promise that He would always be with us and with Him we can be more than conquers. The world will chew you up and spit you out, BUT GOD! He has His arms open, calling us all to His unfailing love, grace, and mercy. In six years, much has happened and I know more will continue to happen. Most of all, I know that I am not alone and I can lean on Him.
My father, Jimmie Green has kidney disease. He has been battling it for the past 5 years. Recently, it began to progress very quickly causing it to effect other areas of his body. The doctors wanted to prepare for a kidney transplant. We, as a church, have been praying. A week later, my dad went for a consultation and they said he wasn’t in need of the transplant anymore. God is good. The doctors said as long his kidneys are stable; he will be fine and not need the transplant. Although, he is not completely out of the danger zone, God has given him more time and less pain. God always has the final say so!
I’ve been believing God for eight years to touch my mother, Carol English. I was believing and praying for her salvation. I reached out to her and invited her to one of our Arena productions called “Salvage.” She came and responded to the alter call, surrendering her life to Christ. She has been filled with joy ever since. You can even see a peace about her. She was always filled with worry before. Thank God he cares and loves her enough to draw her to Him!
On July 20, 2019, I went to the Emergency room due to chest pains. When I arrived, they took me straight back. To make a long story short, my blood work showed signs of blood clots. My son contacted our assistant pastor, Pastor Jeremy, and the church rallied together to pray for me. When the nurses and medics ran the EKG, ultrasound, and even a CT all the results came back negative. My doctor even said she cannot explain it. I said “I can, my God showed up.”
I was leaving prayer and a man came up to me. He began to ask me where I was from and what my name was. He then told me that he felt God wanted him to give me this as he handed me money. I was thinking how crazy this was, because the day before God wanted me to give $100.00. I didn’t have the money, but I told God if that was what He wanted that is what I would do. I looked at the money that the man had given me and it was $200.00!
Recently, I’ve been praying and fasting for God to give me a full time job with normal working hours. God answered my prayers and blessed me with a well-paying job with great hours. These hours don’t interfere with what God is doing in our church and my life.
God still does unbelievable miracles. Two months ago, there was an alter call for anyone who needed a miracle done in their life. I took a step of faith. I was unemployed, a single mom of two, and had no vehicle. After I was prayed for I believed God for those needs to be met. Less than a month later, I received a call with a start date for a job and I was given a van as a gift. I had been waiting to hear from this job and they kept putting me off. God is amazing! Of course, God doesn’t stop there. My son had begun to experience a bad break out of eczema covering his whole body. It was heart breaking and nothing was working for him. Someone at church came up to me and noticed my son, they prayed for him. Four days later my son was completely healed in JESUS NAME! ALL THANKS AND GLORY BELONGS TO MY GOD, AMEN! God didn’t stop at one miracle and he is not done yet!
My father had been taken to the hospital where he was diagnosed with an arterial ulcer which was causing him to be bleeding internally and the doctors were saying that they didn't think he was going to make it. My family and I prayed for a miracle. In less than a week after surgery, my father returned to his home.....free from the bleeding, blood pressure returned to normal and off the heart monitor. HALLELUJAH!!! All our praise goes to God, the ultimate Healer and thanks to our church for their power in praying.
”My name is Chris Gadsden. My wife Rachel & I have the privilege of helping in the Base Ministry at Victory Chapel. Recently, God has opened doors with the chaplains on at NAS Jax allowing us to conduct Bible Studies and minister to sailors. We have seen several sailors surrender their lives to Jesus and grow in their relationships' with God. The past couple of years we have been able to partner with the chaplains and put on concerts on NAS Jax Chapel grounds. We are beginning to assist the MWR staff by volunteering at events that they have to serve and support our troops.
In our early church history our Senior Pastor, Ron Meyer, had a burden to minister at NAS Jax and God opened doors and gave him a measure of revival. In the process of time, some momentum was lost and Pastor Meyer began to pray that God would give us an open door of opportunity again. Therefore, I am under no delusion that the progress we are seeing is an answered prayer and a direct result of years of labor and seeds that have been planted and watered. I am humbled to be a part of what God is doing at NAS Jax through Victory Chapel and I am excited to see what will unfold in the future.“
