Victory Springs Independent Baptist Church is honored to have Pastor Patrick Gimenez and family as our pastor. Pastor Gimenez planted the church, here in High Springs, back in 2015 and we have been delighted to have him lead the church under the leadership of Jesus Christ.
Pastor and Mrs. Kami were married in 1994 and Pastor surrendered his life to preach in 1996. After attending a Bible institute in his local church for 5 years, he was called to be on staff and head up the bus ministry at a Baptist church in Mississippi. From there he went on to be the Youth Director at Winkler Road Baptist Church, serving under Pastor Don Strange. From there, in 2006, he and his family surrendered their lives to be missionaries overseas and served in that capacity for 7 years. Upon returning to the U.S., for medical reasons, the Gimenez family moved to High Springs and started VSIBC in early 2015. To find out more of their story: http://www.vsibc.org/about-us/history/
Pastor and Mrs. Kami have 6 kids and each play a part in the ministries here at VSIBC. Their oldest daughter, Elisabeth, teaches the Nursery Sunday School, serves in the music ministry, and is the church secretary. Brenna teaches the 4-6 year old Sunday School Class, as well as being the church pianist. Silas, Callie, and Micah fill seats and look cute. Pastor Gimenez teaches the adult Sunday School class and his preaching touches the heart and stirs the soul while giving you an application that you can take home and use immediately.
Bro. Joshua Gimenez and his wife, Tabitha, serve as the Youth Director, as well as leading the music and choir at VSIBC. Joshua surrendered to preach in 2008 and he and his wife were married in January of 2017. In December of 2017, their first child was born, Liberty. They started the youth group back in February 2017 and continue to see growth. The youth group is very active, participating in camps and special conferences, as well as church activities scheduled throughout the year.
