Pastor Patrick Franklin & First Lady Sandra Franklin
It was 2009 when then 'Elder' Patrick Franklin decided to build a church. He had a clear vision and decided to spend the rest of his life pursuing it. He came home one day and discussed the possibility of starting a ministry with Missionary Sandra L. Franklin. God gave him the name 'Victory'. Both Patrick & Sandra decided that the most important thing was to save souls and spread the Gospel without compromising God's word.
It was decades ago when Pastor Franklin gave his life to God. Since that day in 1986, Pastor Franklin has never looked back. He started his spiritual journey out at 'The Lord's Tabernacle Holiness Church' of Memphis, TN. He sat under Bishop Philemon Turner for over 20 years.
Bishop Turner remains Pastor Franklin's mentor. He have learned a great deal from Bishop Turner and now he's passing the knowledge he gained on to the next generation.
Pastor Franklin's dedication to the Lord inspired his wife Sandra Franklin to make a drastic change in her life. She was a woman who valued her husband and conquered many challenges throughout her life. In 1988, Sandra Franklin committed her life to Jesus Christ. She quickly found out that there was no challenge greater than God. Five Children, One God Child, Two Grandchildren, and over Two Decades of Marriage, and The Franklin's still carry on. They have truly dedicated their lives to God and their ministry. They Practice what they preach and the good Lord continues to Bless Victory Tabernacle Holiness Church.
"If God Said It, that settles it!" -Lady Sandra Franklin
