Preparing the next generation

Meet our Pastors

Ben and Alyssa Archer are the Student Ministry Pastors at Victory. Ben has been on staff for over four years and Alyssa stays at home with their two year old daughter, Mila. Ben and Alyssa have been attending Victory for about 10 years and feel blessed to call Victory their home. In their free time they enjoy hiking, kayaking, and spending time with friends. They love investing into the next generation and feel so privileged to pastor the middle school and high school students.

Service Experience

Our weekly services in student ministries are all about the Big 4. Know God, Find Freedom, Discover Purpose, and Make an Impact. Our services are designed so that students know they belong and are family.

Echo, our ministry for middle school students (from 5th through 8th grade) meets during all regular service times.

SOZO, our ministry for high school students (from 9th through 12th grade) meets on Wednesdays from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm.

We love getting to connect your students into the most important part of our service: Small Groups. Our weekly small groups take place in every service with the same students and the same leaders so that you can build relationships with your peers and your leader consistently.

Parents

We know how important it is for you to stay connected and informed about your student’s spiritual walk. We’d love to connect with you! If you’re regularly attending Victory, you can join our Parent Connect for all the latest updates and parent information!

Questions

Do students need to register or check-in?

We ask that students check in every service so they can be properly placed in the correct small group with the same students and leaders every week. Nametags and parent pick up required for 5th graders.

Can my student pick their small group?

Small groups are assigned based on gender, grade, and zip code. We want to set students up to have relationships at school with their small group peers. However, if their assigned small group is not working out, we can assign them to another..

What if my student can’t come every week to small group, will that affect anything?

Whatever their attendance they are always welcome. However, consistency is a key in building relationships. If the student doesn’t come for a few weeks in a row, the student’s small group leader will follow up to make sure everything is okay.

What if my student doesn’t have a preferred service? They may come either Saturday or Sunday depending on their schedule. Will they still have a group?

Yes, but they will be treated like a first-time guest and placed in a temporary group for those services. It is best for students to pick and commit to a preferred service.

What if my student is having a hard time connecting with their group and wants to switch?

We ask each student to commit to 4-6 weeks of coming to small group. If they are having a hard time after that, we will assign them another small group. >
