VIC & GAIL PRIETTO
PASTOR VIC'S STORY
Before becoming a pastor, Victor C. Prietto was a sought-after street evangelist. His mission work took him to Hungary and Romania, where he led thousands to Christ and witnessed many miraculous moves of the Holy Spirit.
In 1997, Victor and his wife, Gail, founded Living Way Foursquare Church in New Buffalo, Michigan. Through Pastor Vic and Gail's fruitful ministry of leadership development and discipleship, a church plant that begun with just 10 individuals is now a dynamic body of approximately 180 members. In May of 2011, the church acquired property and a building just 6.5 miles from the original location, at 2410 Duneland Beach Drive, in Michigan City, Indiana. Following remodeling, the congregation moved there in August of 2011.
Pastor Vic's Foursquare credentials include receiving his District License in 1996, International License in 2002 and Ordination in 2004. In addition to pastoring the local church, Pastor Vic has served as a Divisional Superintendent overseeing the Foursquare churches in Southwest Michigan since October 2000.
PASTOR GAIL'S STORY
Upon rededicating her life to the Lord in 1992, Gail immediately answered what she sensed was the call of God, through His Word in Isaiah, chapter 6. " Also she heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then I said, Here I am; send me."
Soon after, she met the love of her life, her husband Vic. They were married in 1993. The Lord impressed upon their hearts that they would be serving in ministry together. In 1996 they planted what is now the Living Way Foursquare Church in Michigan City , IN.
Beginning in 1997, Pastor Gail inaugurated various ministries in the church, including the Children's Christian Education Ministry. This and the other ministries which she established have matured and continue to flourish under the direction of the present leadership.
In 2006, Pastor Gail determined to acquire her ministerial license with the Foursquare denomination. This progress has proven to be both a blessing and a great incentive. In October 2014, she received her Certificate of Ordination from the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel. Presently, her ambition is to make the most of every opportunity to operate in her unique gifting: to faithfully impart the Lord's wisdom, and to speak forth His life-changing Word, which, empowered by His Spirit, He has promised will not return void, but holds infinite Potential and Power to fulfill the needs of this generation.
