Senior Pastors Peter & Debbie Leal

peter debbie lealPastor Pete is the Senior Pastor at Victory Christian Church (VCC). Raised Catholic, Pastor Pete committed himself to the Lord in 1982. He was called into the ministry, and was ordained in 1984. He has pastored two churches since that time.

Pastor Pete received his attended Bachelor of Theology Degree from Gloryland Bible College in Florence, S.C. and is currently working toward his Master of Theology through International Seminary in Florida. His long term goal is to continue on toward a Doctoral degree in Theology.

Pastor Debbie serves alongside her husband, teaching and equipping VCC members in knowledge and service to the Lord. Pastor Debbie also attained Bible training at Gloryland Bible College. 

The teaching ministry challenges people to better carry out the work of the ministry, whether it is in a 5-fold or lay ministry. The Lord has given Pastor Pete a genuine heart and a burning vision to see leaders developed in local church settings as well as internationally, and concerning such has given him a strong word and deep revelation of abiding leadership principles to impart to the body of Christ. He has taught in dozens of countries, and doors of opportunity continue to be opened each year.

Pastor Pete's spiritual passion is to be involved in the strategic planting of churches all over New England and beyond, that the needs of God's harvest for the 21st century be more fully met. Pastor Pete is the president of the international arm of VCC, known as Victory Christian Global Fellowship (VCGF), and oversees hundreds of churches and ministry training centers in nearly a dozen countries.

Pastors Pete and Debbie currently reside in Middletown, CT.
