In 2004, the ministry team from Victory Bible Church saw the burden of a lack of education weighing on 15 homeless children and decided to start a school to meet this need.
Over a decade later, Grace Emmanuel School continues to provide a low-cost, quality education for students from the poorest families in the community, desiring with education, healthy mentoring relationships, and Scripture to transform lives to abundance in Christ.
