Victory Baptist Church strives to make sure that the gospel takes center stage instead of a backseat in all of our events and activities. A lot has happened in 2020 despite COVID-19 but the biggest news of the year for Victory is the purchase of 81 acres of land in Avery County for the future home of Camp Victory and a Christian retreat.
Our intentions include, but are not limited to:
A Christian youth camp to have during the summer.
Cabins for out of town pastors, missionaries and Christian workers to stay so they can take a break from the pressures of ministry and relax in the beautiful mountains of Western NC.
There are hiking trails already established through nearly 50 acres of forest and a beautiful mountain stream runs along the backside of the property.
Our immediate plans include widening the existing road that reaches the cleared fields on top of the property where you can see Mt. Mitchell in the distance by looking in one direction and Grandfather Mountain by looking in the other. We also plan to have electricity and water on top of the mountain by the end of 2021.
Our prayer and hope is to already be holding evangelistic meetings and youth outreach events on the mountain by next summer. This is truly an endeavor of faith but God is already proving to be more than able to provide for the needs of His children.
We are thankful for the growing list of Camp Victory ministry partners! The only real hope for our country is Christ, and our young people need Jesus more than anything else!
