Pastor Terry and Samantha Prider are the senior pastors and leaders of Victorious Church in South Australia as well as the proud parents of two young sons, James (7) and Alex (5).
Both Terry and Samantha are passionate about seeing people come to faith in Christ, being released into their purpose, having impact in their sphere of influence and building the local church. To them the local community is to be top of the churches’ agenda. They desire to see the church embrace the unique opportunities presented in the 21st century without compromising the eternal truth of scripture. Their vision is for a truly generational and diverse church filled with toddlers, kids, youth, young adults, singles, married couples, families, retirees, seniors and everyone in between, all from differing backgrounds.
Pastor Terry and Sam have been directly involved in church and ministry for more than ten years, serving in a wide variety of capacities.
Prior to ministry both Terry and Samantha worked in private enterprise. Sam ‘s background is in customer service, training and development, marketing, business management and travel consultancy while Terry worked in senior management in the agriculture sector as well as project management in property development. Their skills, experience and abilities gained prior to ministry continue to complement their unique heart, talent and gifting in ministry.
Sam devotes her time between raising a family as a working mum and leading the church while Terry works full time as the Senior pastor and leader, is completing a graduate certificate in leadership and maintains a keen interest and active involvement in politics.
