Located in Research Triangle Park(Durham), North Carolina, Victorious
Praise Fellowship Church of God in Christ, a progressive cutting edge
21st century outreach ministry was founded by Pastor Wil and First Lady
Grace Nichols. With just 10 members and a willingness to serve God's
people, they started out on a lifelong journey that would transform
Durham, NC and the surrounding areas.
Pastor Nichols received the vision of Victorious Praise Fellowship
COGIC in 1997 while driving down I-85. In November of 1997, Pastor Wil,
First Lady Grace, and 10 like-minded individuals met at the home of
Pastor Nichols so that the vision and plan for Victorious Praise could
be communicated. The first service of Victorious Praise Fellowship
Church of God in Christ was held January 15, 1998 in the clubhouse of
Lovett Square Apartments in Durham, NC.
