About us

We're a simple church.
It all comes down to loving God and loving people. If we can do that well, everything else will fall into place.

We're on mission to bring the heart of God to everyone, everywhere, and help them experience the fullness of life. Your life has purpose, and God has a plan for you. He has a story that He's inviting you into. We're all on a journey, and we can all take a next step. No matter if your next step is baptism, inviting a friend, giving, or joining a group or serve team, you have a place here. You don't have to believe to belong, but we want you to know – you matter, we care, and Jesus loves you. Welcome to Victory Church.

Pastor Don is the lead and founding pastor of Victory Church. He and his wife Cathy started Victory in 1996 as a portable church, meeting in Spanish River High School. He has three children, Donny, Carrie, and Jayden. Pastor Don knew God called them to start a church that would be all about loving God and loving people, and these are core values of our church today that Pastor Don has embodied with his whole life. He is a passionate preacher and visionary leader. He loves his family dearly and has always put them first.

Pastor Donny Karpinen

Lead Pastor


Pastor Donny is a visionary leader, song writer, musician, content creator, and thoughtful communicator. He is most proud to be a husband to his middle-school-sweetheart Brittany, and has two beautiful daughters, Jensen and Rowan. He was just six years old when his parents founded Victory Church. Growing up, he led worship in the youth group and then traveled the country for many years with a band called Cadence. In 2017, Pastor Donny felt very clearly a call to love and serve Victory Church with his life. Love for God, his family, and his church keep him filled with joy and hope for every day.
