Victory Outreach opens new doors
Ministry joins fight against addiction
The Victory Outreach ministry recently opened its doors in Paso Robles. The church, which has been operating in the North County area for about two years, is now located at 3850 Ramada Drive, suite B3.
The church’s pastor, Jason Wilson, has been with Victory Outreach International for about 16 years. He was a pastor in the Gilroy Victory Outreach before moving his family to the Paso Robles area to start the ministry.
The new building, which has been opened for almost two months, offers services every Sunday at 10 a.m. and Wednesday at 7 p.m. Prayer time is also available starting one hour prior to service.
“Although we have been active in the North County area for two years, we wanted to introduce our church and its ministries to the community,” Wilson said.
As well as providing church and Christian educational services, the ministry has also opened a men’s and women’s home to help the community combat the rising statistics of drug and alcohol addiction.
Currently, the homes combined have approximately 20 residents with room for more. The program consists of one-year commitment with various stages of achievement geared to promote independence from addiction. This is especially important because the Super Bowl is around the corner, which is the biggest relapse day of the year.
“Victory Outreach is responsible, through God’s grace, for assisting many men and women to free themselves from drugs and alcohol. It is a faith-based program with proven results,” Wilson said.
Victory Outreach also offers an alternative to traditional services for the youth through its program called GANG, God’s Anointed New Generation. This ministry, according to Wilson, was established to meet the needs of children worldwide.
“Kidz G.A.N.G. offers children a place where Kidz and their families can have fun while learning about Jesus Christ. Kidz Crusades, Kidz Summer Camps and Sunday Schools are just some of the fun ways Kidz G.A.N.G. reaches out to children.,”according to the VO International Web site at victoryoutreach.org.
The ministry, according to Wilson, is still in its infancy and is growing daily. Wilson said new education and ministry opportunities are being added weekly to meet the needs of the community.
“It is important for us to be part of the community, especially in the area of fighting addiction and alcoholism. Many churches are not equipped to deal with this. We hope we can work hand-in-hand with other churches to keep this plague from spreading further,” Wilson said.
