In the year 2000, our founders, Jim and Marti Souza embarked on their journey as husband and wife. Marti had been involved in ministry since 1996, while Jim owned his own business. As Jim and Marti came together in marriage, it become clear that God was forming a powerful partnership for ministry.
Jim and Marti were both raised in Fremont, CA and have cultivated a long history of desiring transformation for this Bay Area region. In their early friendship they were part of a group that traveled to attend the Brownsville Revival (also known as the Pensacola Outpouring which originated in Brownsville, Florida). These foundational experiences with God’s power and healing marked them in their passion to see God move in the Bay Area with that same supernatural power.
From 2000 to 2010, God began to train them as a couple through traveling as well as ministering as associate pastors in a local church. During this time, God had given Jim and Marti several encounters and prophetic words about starting a church.
Voice of Triumph Church was finally birthed in 2010 and began with Saturday night services for the first 4 years. These first years were an establishing time period of God confirming His word. God’s presence began to show up in these meetings and miracles, healings and salvations began to flow out of the ministry.
After these first 4 years, God opened the door for our church to expand into Sunday morning services. In April of 2014, we moved into our current facility! Since being in this location, God has continued to increase His impact and influence through us as a Church! In 2018 we were honored to recieve the City of Fremont’s “Best Church in Fremont” award.
In 2019, Voice of Triumph is furthering it’s mandate of being a house of the prophetic, and a place for God to display miracles, signs and wonders. We are an equipping center for the Bay Area, a landing spot for powerful speakers and a launching pad to impact the nations! We are so excited to watch God continue to build this house for His glory!
