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.
