From Humble Beginnings to a Worldwide Movement
Victory Outreach was founded in 1967 by Sonny and Julie Arguinzoni when they invited people from the Aliso Village housing projects into their own home. They shared the basic tenants of the Gospel: God loves them and has the power to change their lives. Victory Outreach was born and began to flourish.
Victory Outreach is an international, church-oriented Christian ministry called to the task of evangelizing and discipling the hurting people of the world, with the message of hope and plan of Jesus Christ.
This call involves a commitment to plant and develop churches and training centers, in strategic cities of the world.
Victory Outreach inspires and instills within people the desire to fulfill their potential in life with a sense of dignity, belonging, and destiny.
Victory Outreach works cooperatively with others of mutual purpose in accomplishing the task before us.

“Creating a legacy of hope since 1967″
For over 45 years, Julie and I founded Victory Outreach with a clear mission: to empower individuals to take control of their lives by placing their future in the hands of God. We have seen multitudes exchange a hopeless life or future for a new resolve and confidence in life with a single-minded determination to help others.
Our unique vision continues to guide our values-driven approach to ministry, personal growth, and global-community involvement. Since our beginning, the preeminent value of Victory Outreach is family. We are a global family with members in every populated continent in the world.
Visit a Victory Outreach Church from London to Los Angeles, Manila to Mexico City; you will be greeted as family. If you have not visited a Victory Outreach Church lately, allow us to extend our hearts to you.
THERE IS HOPE FOR THE LOST AND HURTING
Change Begins When You Believe
Statistically, there are over 300 live-in recovery homes in the U.S. and around the world. There are as many as 10,000 residents (men and women) in these recovery homes at one time. Their lodging, food, and clothing is provided at no charge. These Victory Homes go into some of the most drug infested areas of the inner cities and reaches out to men and women who are helplessly addicted to heroin, meth and other drugs. Such effectiveness comes from the fact that majority of people providing assistance are former addicts and gang members who at one time found themselves trapped in the same cycle of addiction.
A Message of Hope and Healing
The message is simple; Jesus can change and transform any life no matter the condition or the addiction. Scriptures are used as the foundation to bring a message of deliverance. Once the message is heard and received, addicts are taken off the streets or in some cases out of prison and given an opportunity to live in these Homes (as it is often referred to). The people who direct the Homes know it’s not an easy road yet through tough love, compassion, and support they have been able to see tremendous results.
Results for a Lifetime
Once a resident completes his/her stay at one of these Victory Recovery Homes, follow up is provided by the local church, where they’re directed to get actively involved in the life flow of the church. Each Victory Home has a local church that residents are very much a part of and take an active role in the functions of the local church.
The emphasis in these Victory Homes, is creating a lifetime of service to others. Many graduates go on to work with addicts, gangs and other hurting people by helping them know the freedom they now embrace. The bottom line: These Victory Homes have an exponential effect in helping and getting involved in reaching out to our communities. By rescuing one person, they often then, in turn, reach out too many others.
