Will Gallison

Student Pastor

Life Story

I grew up in St. Albans, Maine, the oldest of four boys, in a solid Christian home. I was extremely blessed to have two parents who loved Christ and saw it as their purpose to point our trajectory toward lifetime worship of Him. Due to this environment, I remember at age four the realities of Christ's love for me finally making sense and placing my trust in Him for salvation. Since then, I have experienced highs and lows as Christ molds me and shapes me.

My journey to vocational service of Christ was an interesting one. I found out in Middle School that I loved gaining the respect and attention from older Christians, so to gain it further, I decided telling people I wanted to be a Pastor gained that respect even more so. This carried on through most of High School until I attended a 3 week mission's trip to the Dominican Republic the summer before my Senior year. It became clear to me then, that God's call for me was to die to myself and my people pleasing and serve Him only.

Following High School I attended Word of Life Bible Institute, graduating in 2010 with a two year certificate in Bible. From there, I attended Boston Baptist College, graduating in 2013 with a Bachelor of Biblical Studies with a Minor in Youth Ministries degree. While at Boston, I met my wife Amber and we would eventually be married in 2014.

After graduating from Boston Baptist College in 2013, I accepted a Student Pastor position at a church in the Washington D.C. Metro Area. In June of 2015, God called our family to Victory where I have served as the Student Pastor since.

This past spring, God has allowed me to complete further education, graduating from Luther Rice College and Seminary with a Masters of Arts in Biblical Counseling.

Hope for Victory

My hope for Victory is that our church would be a church family defined by our unquenchable love for Christ and His word. That our lives would reflect a Christlike compassion for one another.

My hope for Victory's students is that through a partnership with parents as the main disciple makers of their children, we would see our students be life long disciples of Christ, who yearn to know God and share His gospel with others.
