Marcia Smith assumed the leadership role of Mississauga Victory Church (formerly called Jubilee Victory Church) in May 2008. Prior to this, she served as associate pastor of Westside Victory Church in Calgary, Alberta for 3 years. Before entering full-time ministry, Marcia worked as a registered nurse for 14 years in Toronto.
In 1987, Marcia and her mother were ambushed by her stepfather while she was driving her mother to work. Her stepfather shot her mother twice and wounded Marcia in both of her arms. He committed suicide later that day by putting the gun to his head. Ten days later while recovering in hospital, Marcia would hear the sad news that her mother had passed away. Before her discharge from the hospital, God performed a wonderful miracle in Marcia’s heart; she was able to forgive her stepfather for taking the life of her mother and wounding her.
Marcia gave her heart to the Lord a few months later and has pursued him wholeheartedly ever since. She has graduated from Tyndale Seminary in Toronto with a Masters of Divinity.
Marcia’s greatest passion is seeing believers fulfill their calling and destiny. She desires to see God’s power manifested in the life of believers and in His church.
