Victory Stories

  • There is an amazingly generous spirit at Victory. Our offerings exceeded what were anticipated in the budget for the last fiscal year.
  • Mom’s Morning of Grace went well. Over 30 women attended this event, and we also live-streamed the event so others could watch online later.
  • Children in Victory Kids received Bibles in memory of Liz Scheel. These will be handed out through the month of July. Thank you to Liz’s family and those who donated to Victory in her memory for allowing us this opportunity to help the children at Victory grow in their family.


  • The team discussed nominees for two vacant positions on the Leadership Team. The team voted and decided on two new team members. Pastor Bill will reach out to these nominees.



  • Online Platform/Streaming: The team discussed equipment purchase for the online studio to allow Victory to share the Gospel with more people via online platforms.
  • Positions: The team had discussions around potential new positions at Victory. We will look to define these roles and hire for them in the next six months. We will share more details on these positions as they are available.


  • Multi-Site: The Leadership Team discussed an opportunity presented by another church to create a multi-site partnership. We will continue to discuss and consider this opportunity in the coming months.
  • Facilities: The Team reviewed the parking lot expansion project. They revisited the conversation regarding whether it is still a project that makes sense to complete. They also discussed a timetable for the project. We submitted another set of plans and paperwork to the City of Franklin in hopes to get this project completed soon.


  • Discipleship App: Pastor Ben shared updates about the discipleship app. He has recruited about 80 beta testers for the app. He shared general information about the content he is sharing on the app and what kinds of interaction he is seeing from the beta testers.


  • Financial Report: The team reviewed and discussed the most recent financial report. No concerns. Victory is extremely blessed by the generosity of its members!
  • Tuition Assistance: The team reviewed and discussed applications submitted by families for Tuition Assistance for attending Lutheran grade schools and high schools. We will be reaching out to these families soon regarding their applications.
