Welcome to Victory!
an abundant life in Christ.
Visitors are always welcome. Join us! Thank you for visiting our website.
We are a non-denominational, spirit-filled church located in the southwestern Minnesota community of Balaton. Our church began as a home Bible study group in January of 1982. A building in downtown Balaton was purchased and converted into a house of worship and ministry in October of 1984. That location served as our church home for 21 years before we built our existing facility in the fall of 2005 in the East Bay Addition off US Highway 14 in Balaton.
Our church body currently consists of over 130 families
from Balaton and 22 other surrounding communities.
Pastor Mike Nelson and Associate Pastor Bob Fricke,
along with an elder board, serve as leaders of Victory.
Also on our Victory staff are Casie Bangasser, Pastor of Ministries,
and Cindy Barnes, Office Manager.
Please contact us at (507) 734-2771 for more information.
We would be happy to meet with you, pray with you,
or answer any questions you might have.
