Victory Center Ministries was founded by Apostle Ray Gimenez in 1987, as an emergency homeless shelter for men, women and families. He is blessed to work alongside his wife, Mary Anne, as she is the director of the Victory Center's Women and Children's Shelter. Together they passionately preach and teach God's word out in the mission field and work to see souls saved and people transformed by the Power of a living God. Ray Gimenez served as National Director of Hispanic Ministries for Open Bible Churches. He is also quite proud to have played for five years with the Detroit Tigers Farm Club, giving up his pursuit of the majors to follow God's calling!


All who are in need of assistance! Whether it’s homelessness, addiction or poverty we are here to serve you by offering individuals the opportunity to develop a relationship with Jesus Christ.
