Victory Grace Center and Dr. Jazz uplift seniors

Dr. Jazz and Members of Victory Grace Show Us What it Means to Bring the Flavor to their Seasoned Saints.

Seniors are an often-overlooked community. Since the start of the pandemic, they arguably have felt the greatest sting of vulnerability, loneliness, and disconnection. It’s a Victory Day! is the story of how one church is keeping their seniors protected, connected, and victorious.

It’s a Victory Day! is the first story in our Bravo! Stories of Good initiative, a series of captivating short videos that celebrate the work that Givelify’s giving community is doing to make the world a better place. 

This story follows Jasmin Skulark — known by her global audience as Dr. Jazz — the senior pastor of Victory Grace Center as they do the good work their church feels they’ve been called to do: loving on seniors. This is the story of a woman who learned at an early age that life must be about more than simply surviving. It’s the story of a church community caring for those who have been victimized and helping them become victorious. It’s the story of "Seasoned Saints” finding joy and deep connection during worldwide isolation. It’s a Victory Day! is the story of how generosity can change the world.  

I do what I do because I believe in purpose. I believe we’re all here to achieve something, to do something...And I want, when I leave this earth, for somebody to know that I was here. I do it ultimately because I love God, but secondly, I love people. I do it because if I can help somebody, then my living in this world will not be in vain.

Dr. Jazz,
Victory Grace Center
