Duane Sheriff leads Victory Life Church, a growing multi-campus church based in Durant, Oklahoma where he has been the senior pastor for over 30 years. After having a life-changing encounter with Jesus in 1980, Duane left a promising tennis career, married his wife Sue, and moved from Florida to Oklahoma to attend bible school. He has been actively involved in ministry ever since. Under his leadership, Victory Life Church has grown from meeting in a small double wide trailer to having thousands of people each weekend meeting in multiple campuses across the United States and online across the globe. His passion is to build healthy churches that are growing people in Christ, helping people discover their true identity and become all God created them to be.
Duane is a highly sought after international speaker and has given away millions of free teachings through his ministry. He and his wife Sue have four adult children who are all active in ministry. When he is not pastoring or teaching, he enjoys hunting and spending time with his family, especially the grandkids.
