Pastor Nick and Jackie Koopalethes

Lead Pastor

The Lord brought Nick and Jackie together in 2002 while serving in the children’s ministry in Denver, Co. They were married in 2003 confident in knowing they were called to serve the Lord side by side in ministry. The Lord has blessed them with three precious and beautiful daughters: Sophia, Lilliana, and Grace. They enjoy the energetic and always imaginative time spent with their girls, especially singing, dancing and having tea parties.

In 2004, the couple began serving in an associate pastoral position in Somerdale, New Jersey while pioneering a youth ministry. Then in 2006, they served as Student Ministries Pastors in Hampton, Virginia. Throughout the years of gaining valuable ministry experience, the Lord has enabled them to walk out their passion by creatively implementing fresh vision, training and developing effective leadership teams, discipling and mentoring. Both Nick and Jackie feel blessed to minister as the Lord has provided opportunities in large and small group settings, retreats, conferences, outreaches, and international mission trips.

In 2009, Nick and Jackie began to sense the Lord preparing their hearts for a new and unexpected journey. After several months of prayer, there was a mutual sense that the Holy Spirit was prompting them to step out in faith and plant a new church. Through prayer, fasting and pointed research they prepared their hearts for the great adventure of church planting! In late 2010, God moved the Koopalethes' family to northern Virginia and in April of 2011, The Victory House church opened it's doors. Since then, God has added to the community of believers and together they are praying and believing for a mighty move of God in Northern Virginia.
