Cody Samford

Pastor

Hello my name is Cody Samford the pastor at Victory Baptist Church in Kerrville Tx. I am married to my lovely wife Kathryn Samford of almost 13 yrs. We have three wonderful children that the Lord has blessed us with. I grew up in a church home at a young age but never made my parents faith my own. I joined the Army after high school to take off and see the world. I was lost without Christ and about as far away as one could be from the Lord but His providential hand was watching over me through all of my mistakes and vain pursuits. After getting out of the Army a job opportunity opened in North Texas where I eventually ended up in Denton. My mother was desperately trying to get me to get back in church or at least find one in the area I could attend. I ended up visiting Central Baptist Church in Denton where I was saved during a revival meeting. It was not long after that I had met my wife and she was saved. We had dated several years both attending Central Baptist Church in Denton and were married in the church. We began serving in the church as youth leaders and eventually youth directors where we were called into the ministry full time........the rest is history I guess you could say!

James Chambers
Associate Pastor

Hello, my name is James Chambers. My wife, Diane, and I were married in June of 2004. The LORD blessed us with our son, Jakob in 2010.

I did not grow up in church, but I recall many people witnessing to me throughout those early years of my life. I moved from my home state of California to Memphis, Tennessee because of my job. There, God had sent more people to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with me. I accepted Christ as my Savior in the fall of 1990. The LORD moved me to the Denton, Texas area. There, I was invited to church for the first time by friends of mine who attended Central Baptist Church of Denton, Texas. I attended off and on as I began my discipleship. The Lord moved me to Weatherford, Texas where another friend invited me to Liberty Baptist Church in Mineral Wells, Texas. There, I gave my testimony of salvation and was baptized by Pastor Arbie Threatt. I begin serving the LORD in the church. A few short years later I moved my membership to Victory Baptist church in Weatherford, Texas under Pastor Charles Wetherbee. A short time after that I met my wife and we were soon married. During a missions conference, God called me to the ministry. I began attending Norris Bible Baptist Seminary, and completed my studies in 2020. I served as a deacon for 6 years, My wife and I have served together in the ministry teaching junior boys Sunday school class, children’s church, young adults Sunday school class, helping start three Christian schools, running church vans and various other ministries. The LORD has now brought us to Kerrville, Texas to serve Him along side Pastor Cody Samford and his family at Victory Baptist Church.
