God spoke to our visionary leader and founder back in 2011 stating that through him a new Church movement would be established. Under the direction of God, Pastor Vic sold all his earthly possessions and moved to Tampa to prepare for his future. There he acquired many mentors and experience that has served as vital to the current movement.
Breakthrough Church was birthed out of a Discipleship class with four young adults. Pastor Vic at the time was a local Lay Pastor within a local Church in the Tampa Bay Area and at the time he had been intentionally mentoring the small group. Little did he know the Church had already begun.
Awaiting his appointment from the denomination he was serving under, Pastor Vic felt God pulling away from not just that denomination but the usual Church settings. After fasting with leadership it was confirmed that God had called him to plant a new Church. Originally the plan was to organize with his leadership and plant a new Church late 2014. This plan changed on 12/31/2013, when he was asked to leave the denomination for preaching publically and baptizing others without an elder present.
“The call came in, at Midnight of New Year’s eve and although I was heartbroken I knew it was God’s will” – Pastor Vic
Breakthrough Ministries Inc. was incorporated 1/1/2014. The first service was held on Pastors Vic’s birthday January 19 in his living room in Thonotosassa Fl. It started with 6 and by September had grown to 16 as they prepared to take the ministry public in Tampa Florida. Over the next few years a small community of believers would be created in Tampa while holding services in local bars and clubs. Street Ministry was and still is the heart of the ministry.
A year and half after securing their own building in Tampa, Pastor Vic heard God direct him again. After 3 years serving in the Tampa Bay area God called us to travel to Orlando & plant Breakthrough Church. Conflicted with leaving a community he loved so much, Pastor Vic and his leadership team entered into a season of fasting and prayer to discern the will of God. It was confirmed that Breakthrough Church Orlando was next.
Now under the leadership of Pastor Don Nordin & Global Ministries Network, Pastor Vic is Launching Breakthrough Church Orlando! The Church is New to Orlando and has some new faces but the same heart that lived in that living room service in 2014 exists today with even more vigor!
That’s the story so far but there is more to come!
Join us, as we enter the new chapters of Breakthrough!
