Victory Temple Outreach Ministries, Inc. Church History
After serving faithfully at one church for 18 ½ years in several capacities of ministry and administration, Pastor Laytecia McKinney heard the voice of the Lord and obeyed the call to Pastor. Victory Temple Outreach Ministries, Inc. was birthed and established in 2006. Along with her two children and 14 others, the first prayer meeting was held in the living room of her mother, the late Prophetess Dorothy Brooks home. A month later, Victory found its first home and the first church service was held on Sunday, September 10, 2006 in a building located at 7633 N. 56th Street, Tampa, FL which was designated as a house of prayer. Within two years of ministry, Victory grew out of that location and relocated to its current location of 5819 N. 56th Street, Tampa, FL.
To date the following ministries have been established: S.A.L.T. – Singles Adults Living Truth, our Singles Ministry, Altar Ministry, Women of Wisdom, a women's fellowship that empowers women on everyday life issues, WeCare Ministries that ministers to the bereaved families and the sick; SWORDS, Spiritual Warriors Outreaching to Restore Destined Souls, an outreach ministry that feeds and clothes the homeless and families in need; Kingdom Kidz, our dynamic youth; JUDAH Dance Ministry, a liturgical dance ministry for youth and adults; Public Relations, who serves the community in back to school bash, holiday food baskets and toy giveaways and Voices of Victory our anointed praise team that leads and ushers the congregation into the presence of the Lord.
