From a prayer meeting in an apartment on Albany Avenue, Victory Assembly of God, under the vision and leadership of founding Pastor, Rev. Ellsworth Chester, is now a church that reaches the nations for Christ. In 1993 Rev. Chester, while in New York, met a number of believers and family members who were facing all of the usual challenges in their lives. As he shared their difficulties and prayed with many of them, he felt impressed of the Lord to host a prayer meeting at a central location. From that prayer meeting, 10 brethren met in an apartment for the first service and the church evolved into the Victory Assembly we know today – a multi-faceted ministry with a missional vision and a desire to extend the love of Jesus as far and wide as the Lord leads.
