Victory Christian Center
Born and raised in New Castle, Pa God brought Alonzo Waters full circle back to the destiny he was created for in the beginning.
As a young man living in New Castle, Pa, Alonzo made life choices that caused much pain and confusion for himself and others. He witnessed firsthand the destruction of drugs, alcohol, womanizing and getting swept up into the things of this world as many friends were killed by overdoses and shootings. Even in his fallen state, Alonzo recognized the merciful hand of God on his life and knew he needed to get back to a right relationship with Christ.
It was only when he found himself traveling throughout the United States performing as a very successful and profitable lead singer in a rap/reggae group that he realized he had nothing. It was when he had the most this world had to offer that he felt the least. It was when everything that had promised great joy and satisfaction had fallen short that he began to discover there's so much more.
To some it may have seemed he had ruined his life, he was damaged and unusable to God. But Alonzo chose to surrender his life to Christ and allow Him to use his past mistakes for the edification of others and the glory of God.
Today, Pastor Alonzo L. Waters resides once again in New Castle with his wife, Jodi Waters, 11 children and 4 grandchildren. He is also Senior Pastor at Victory @ New Castle, 2009 North Mercer Street, New Castle, Pa 16105. Victory @ New Castle is of one eight Victory Christian Center campuses under the leadership of Bishop David L. and Pastor Kathie Thomas.
Pastor Alonzo is an anointed messenger of God who educates, edifies, and encourages the body of Christ to walk in their calling. His heart is also to reach those outside the four walls of the church. His desire is to create an 80/20 Church where 80% of the ministry is outside of the four walls of the church and 20% of the ministry is inside the church.
With that challenge, Pastor Alonzo has touched the lives of thousands through a venue called “CommUnity Fest” in New Castle, Pa. CommUnity Fest merges various churches in the community together in worship and fellowship. With free admission to CommUnity Fest, thousands have enjoyed well known Christians such as International Dove Award Winner, Martha Munnizi; Former Steeler WR, Antwan Randall El; American Idol Finalist, Phil Stacey; World's Strongest Redneck, Steve McGranahan; MTV/BET Comedian DeSean Ross; American Gospel Singer and producer, Marvin Winans Jr.; and others along with food vendors, bounce houses, petting zoos and much more.
