Lead Pastors Chuck and Joyce RothOur Team at Victory Church of Red Deer

Lead Pastors Chuck and Joyce Roth

Pastor Chuck & Joyce both grew up in rural southern Alberta. The spiritual heritage of their parents was passed down to them and had a significant impact on their lives. Married in 1978, they have 4 married daughters and 7 amazing grandchildren.

After brief stints in trucking, farming, and sales, they entered full-time ministry in 1992 at the Victory Church in Brooks, Alberta; Chuck as Associate Pastor and Joyce as Music Director. Their first Senior Pastorate began in the spring of 1998 at the Victory Church in Claresholm, Alberta. As the congregation grew it became evident that a larger building was needed. In 2003 a building was purchased and remodeled from a bowling alley into the church being used today.

The next step on their journey was as Lead Pastors of the Victory Church in Red Deer. It was in January 2006 they began the process of transforming what has become a vibrant, growing church.

Known for being real, approachable and having a sense of humor, they connect easily with people from all walks of life. Driven by a love for God and people, their passion includes seeing people come to know Jesus and seeing every believer reach their full potential in Christ. You can read Pastor Joyce’s blog at www.myjourneyformore.com
