Victory Life Ministries has been very active in the community and the church is very passionate about extending a helping hand to those in need. Pastor Darin says, “The people attending Victory Life Ministries are some of the most precious people you’ll ever meet and they are a very caring body of believers.” He goes on to say, “When my wife and I came to Pueblo we had a mission and that was to bring hope to the hopeless and to see God transform lives, and we are seeing just that and now we want to kick it up a notch.”
In December of 2010, the couple announced that Victory Life Ministries was starting a Christian based drug and alcohol program called the “Heart Revolution”. An astonishing program that has been used in prisons throughout the United States and has had a proven track record.
These faith based Christian rehabs are popping up all over the country and making head waves. Pastor Darin is extremely excited about the program because he understands first hand the destructive power that an addiction can have over a life.
This is a ministry that is very near and dear to Pastor Darin. As a young adult he got caught up in the lifestyle of drugs, gangs and wound up serving time behind bars. He was so bad that during an application for pardon Governor Roy Romer of Colorado stated that Darin was a menace to society and it would be highly unlikely that he would ever become a productive citizen. However, that proved to be wrong. In prison Darin got sober and gave his life to Christ. He did a 180-degree turn around and one year following his release this ex-con was invited to the Governors mansion in Denver, CO by Governor Roy Romer himself. God has done an amazing work in this young mans life.
Upon his release Darin became a representative for a Christian program called Break Away, which is a Biblically based drug and alcohol program that has impacted thousands of lives. Its focus – helping people overcome their addictions through the saving power of Jesus Christ.
Pastor Darin made the successful transition and has lead a productive life on the outside for the past twelve years now, “Pastor Darin says these programs are powerful tools for those men and woman who want to make a change. God can meet them right where they are and turn their life around!”
Darin has been a model citizen for the past twelve years and attributes his success to the saving power of Christ and the love of family and friends.
His wife Gloria says, “Because we have witnessed first hand, what God can do when we turn our lives over to him, who better than us to reach out and offer hope and a faith based program for those in Pueblo who want a hand up and want to kick their addictions.”
For those that know Darin and Gloria they will tell you they are two of the most genuine and sincere people that you’ll ever meet. The program will start up by early 2011 and in the meantime Victory Life Ministries is reaching out to their community and in addition they are volunteering their time at “The Mission” on 4th Street.
“Our church exists to minister to the real needs of people with the authentic love of Jesus Christ! And, if you do not have a church home, we would be honored to have you consider becoming a part of our fellowship. We aren’t your ordinary Church!!!”
If you are ever in Pueblo, Colorado Pastor Darin and the congregation at Victory Life Ministries invite you to come and visit. They’d love to meet you and your family and to shower you with God’s love. They are just thirty minutes from Colorado Springs, Co.
