Youth Pastors Nathan & Candie Clark
Nathan and Candie both grew up in small towns in North Central Arkansas and relocated to North West Arkansas almost 10 years ago. They immediately fell in love with the area and even more so the people.
“We knew very early on this was where God wanted us to be and we had complete affirmation after visiting Victory Church NWA for the first time. My dad has been a Pastor most of my life and growing up in the Ministry I can say that our first service at Victory was the first that felt like home since our move.”- Nathan Clark.
Nathan & Candie have served in the Victory Praise and Worship Team and now lead our youth program Legacy Youth.
“We love our youth, it is so amazing to see a younger generation on fire for God. Our desire is to see this group continue to grow, to show the love of Christ in our actions and service and to be a Godly presence in the schools and community of NWA” – Candie Clark
