The History of Victory Outreach

In 1967, Sonny and Julie Arguinzoni were led by God to start a ministry dedicated to reaching the hurting people of the worlds' inner cities.  We began in a small building on Gless St. in the heart of East Los Angeles, and began reaching out to the surrounding areas.  From those humble beginnings more than forty years ago, God has developed a worldwide ministry still dedicated to the original vision.  Yet our vision has expanded from just reaching drug addicts and gang members, to impacting people from all walks of life.  Today Sonny and Julie continue to inspire the work locally and lead the ministry internationally. 

Victory Outreach is the recognized leader in the field of sustainable transformational ministry.  Since 1967, we have helped thousands of people take control of their lives.  From our simple beginning, we have grown into an international organization, carrying the hope and message of Jesus Christ to the four corners of the earth.


Throughout the years, we have strived for excellence.  We have reorganized our corporate structure to enhance administration and facilitate growth.  We have provided state of the art training for our pastoral staff and leadership, and have raised the expectations of our staff to new levels of proficiency.  We have taken steps to make sure the legacy of Victory Outreach continues for generations to come.  In Victory Outreach churches and centers worldwide, it is compassion that triumphs…faith that endures.
