The team at Victory Church exists to help people take the Next Step in their journey of faith with the Lord Jesus Christ!  We desire that everything that we do as we serve in ministry would align with the Biblical values to love God, love people, pursue excellence, and choose joy.  We have a blast together serving Jesus, the people in our tribe, and each other!  Victory is led by our Lead Pastor, our Executive Leadership Team, and a non-staff leadership team of Elders and Trustees.  

Pastor Curt (PC) and Pam Seaburg became the lead pastors of Victory Church in 2006, bringing with them a continued passion for helping people take Next Steps and a dream for helping people grow in their relationship with Jesus. PC envisioned what it would be like to have churches in communities where people could know their neighbors and the needs of their community, and the church’s multi-site vision of One Church, Many Communities was born. He loves to see people live in the purpose and direction that the Lord has planned for them in their life and find that through their relationship with Jesus.  

PC and Pam met while in college and their early married life included ministry in worship and youth ministry before becoming lead pastors.  They are blessed with four adult children (Elissa, married to Michael; Kiersten, married to Steve; Courtney, married to Zach; and Drew, married to Noelle) who all love the Lord and serve in the local church.  They are also thrilled to be “Poppie and ZZ” to two of the most beautiful grandkids, Harper and Ben.  PC loves riding his Harley (even better when Pam rides her Harley with him!), traveling, golf, DIY projects, listening to the Bible Project podcast, working in the yard, and everything Dallas Cowboys!
