Couple honored for leadership


YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — The family that prays together, stays together holds true in the case of David and Kathie Thomas, who also help to keep a church community together.

On Sunday, Victory Christian Center members honored the couple who have been senior pastors for the past 36 years.

Although the Thomas’ have been with the multi-campus church since it had only 46 members, they said there are always challenges to overcome.

“You can’t go through 36 years and not have a lot of challenges and disappointments and hurts. But our ministry is very relevant. We didn’t get stuck,” said Kathie Thomas.

She added that although she and her husband were the ones being honored, their journey wouldn’t have been possible without the church community’s support.
