Pastor Sonny and Julie Arguinzoni
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.
From Humble Beginnings to a Worldwide Movement
Victory Outreach was founded in 1967 by Sonny and Julie Arguinzoni when they invited people from the Aliso Village housing projects into their own home. They shared the basic tenants of the Gospel: God loves them and has the power to change their lives. Victory Outreach was born and began to flourish.
Victory Outreach is an international, church-oriented Christian ministry called to the task of evangelizing and discipling the hurting people of the world, with the message of hope and plan of Jesus Christ.
This call involves a commitment to plant and develop churches, rehabilitation homes and training centers, in strategic cities of the world.
Victory Outreach inspires and instills within people the desire to fulfill their potential in life with a sense of dignity, belonging, and destiny.
Victory Outreach works cooperatively with others of mutual purpose in accomplishing the task before us.
