Victory Mission

Victory Mission began in 1978 as ministry to the mobile home parks off Victory Drive in south Columbus. Originally started by the Columbus Baptist Association, First Baptist became the primary sponsor in 1985. In 2002, First Baptist accepted full responsibility for the mission. Through the years, Victory Mission has been a ministry to the changing population of the mobile home parks.

At Victory Mission, we use the Word of God to reach a community where every day is uncertain. In an underserved community where life’s challenges hit hard, we work to bring the peace and dependable love that only our Lord can provide. Serving low-income neighborhoods around Victory Drive and other parts of south Columbus, Victory Mission is the heart of our local missions efforts.  

Interested in getting involved? Volunteers are needed to help serve meals, drive vans, teach classes, tutor students,  and provide general help and support. We encourage you to stop by to see what Victory Mission is all about before deciding to volunteer. Contact Howie Hooper.   The location is at the corner of Airview Drive and Victory Drive (approx. 3200 Victory Drive)
