Victory U-Belt Gears Up For Growth

The great civilizations of the past like Egypt’s age-old Pyramids were characterized by limestones, while the Great Wall of China was made from mud bricks.

But for Victory U-Belt?  The smell of freshly painted walls marked the new Multi-Purpose Hall at the third level of the St. Thomas Square.

Since Victory U-Belt moved to its present facility on December 2004, the Main Hall at the fourth level has served as the key venue to accommodate people in all its Sunday and Youth services every week.

On the other hand, the smaller rooms that could hold either 40, 60 or 80 people at the third level serve as the main venues for the Kids Church services, small meetings and other events.

Considering the growth of the congregation in recent years, Victory U-Belt has embarked on its expansion plans that started since the first quarter of 2014.

Part of the expansion plan included a major construction at the third level just facing the Kids Church area, which paved the way for the unveiling of the Multi-Purpose Hall.  Up to 250 people can be accommodated at the Hall, which serves as an overflow room during services or as room for various church events.

Lifebox U-Belt and the Sunday afternoon services felt the need for expansion. The past two years saw packed Youth services where students had to fall in line from as far back as the ground floor of the St. Thomas Square before the start of the service.

It may be a logistical nightmare for the administrative people, but on the positive note, that just goes to show the growth that God is bringing at Victory U-Belt.

Today, the new hall will serve as the key venue for events such as Foundations for Victory classes, Volunteer Orientations and Ministry Meeting.

Expansion means growth. And with the bigger space we have today, expect more students, professionals and Manila residents to experience changed lives through the Gospel.
