Our Background

How it All Started…

A Group of People Ready to Make a Difference

A Church Without Walls

As God would lead, the Triumph Christian Center was birthed into the heart of Dr. Reginald Dawkins. On April 12th, a group of about 30 persons met to plan, organize, and execute the beginning of the church. On April 18th at the Crowne Plaza hotel in Hampton, VA more than 120 persons committed to the shared dream and vision of the church. The vision is one of a Bible based teaching/preaching community where believers can grow in the knowledge of the Lord, Jesus Christ as they impact the community for Christ. It has been the vision of this ministry to impact the community through ministries, outreach, programs, mission based services, and activities that will support the spiritual, educational, physical, and emotional needs of children, youth, teens, and all ages, races, and populations.  

One Church; Two Locations

On July 4, 2010 Triumph Christian Center began to meet for 10:30 am worship at Hines Middle School, 561 McLawhorne Drive, Newport News, Virginia 23601. In April of 2011 the church also acquired a second site located at 4915 W. Mercury Boulevard, Hampton, Virginia 23605 to have an added 8:00 am service on Sundays and to have bible study. The Administrative Offices and Family Services Center also featured a food distribution center and clothes closet that provided outreach to the surrounding community.   

A Place of Hope

On March 4, 2012 Triumph Christian Center moved locations to 3509 Chestnut Avenue, Newport News, Virginia 23607 and continued to grow and build there through August of 2014. On September 1, 2014 Triumph Christian Center moved services back to Hines Middle school and leased an office location with the objective of purchasing our own church home. The vision was materialized at the end of 2015 as God allowed the congregation to purchase its own facility, valued to at over 3 million dollars! To God be the glory! On January 3, 2016 Triumph Christian Center had the dedication and ribbon cutting ceremony on our new church building located at 5501 Huntington Avenue, in Newport News, Virginia! God is continuing to bless the vision of Pastor and people as we progress on this journey for the Kingdom.  

The church is a growing congregation with a vision to transform and enlighten the community for Christ. Over the last few years, the church has grown tremendously in all aspects. The church is engaged in a holistic ministry to reach all generations for Christ including: social networking such as Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, and live streaming; community involvement such as golf tournaments to raise money for underprivileged children; Save Our Sons and Daughters of Destiny with the local schools; women’s retreats and men’s conferences; young at hearts; youth explosions; and other events to grow the body of Christ in the image of Christ.  

The church has a kingdom mindset to engage every member to be a kingdom citizen. Through 2014-2016 the church undertook a stewardship campaign called Project VOICE. The campaign will lead the body of Christ into the next phase of the ministry. It will help us to transform and enlighten the body of Christ to be kingdom citizens.
