In May 1982, 35 believers gathered at a home to share their vision of starting a non-denominational church in Georgetown County. In June, they began meeting at the old Winyah Academy on Thursday evenings for a Bible study. In the spring of 1983, Chip Judd began leading this study; he would become the founding pastor of Victory Christian Fellowship (VCF).

We formally organized as a church on June 3, 1984, with about 100 present at our first meeting, held at Winyah Academy. In December, we rented a building on Screven Street, quickly expanding to the "little white building" next door. After renovation, we used this building as our sanctuary, and the original building for classrooms, office, nursery and kitchen.

Continuing to grow, we moved into the old Pentecostal Holiness Church on Front Street on June 12, 1987. In December 1990 we acquired the Winyah Academy Gymnasium and 6.5 acres of land. Six months of renovation work followed, with the church family temporarily meeting at Kensington School. On August 25, 1991, a tired but excited VCF family worshiped in our "new" and present building.

Pastor Rod Reid joined the VCF staff in December 2001. On October 5th, 2008, Pastor Chip transitioned VCF's leadership to Pastor Rod.

VCF is a part of Evangel Fellowship International based in Conway, SC.
