Former Full Gospel Assemblies VP At Home With the Lord 

Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.
O LORD, truly I am thy servant; I am thy servant,
and the son of thine handmaid: thou hast loosed my bonds.

Family of God 

Dear Men and Women of God, 

It is with a heavy heart that this letter comes your way.  Our Lord, in His divine providence has called home our brother in the faith, Pastor J. Victor Fisk, who along with his surviving wife, Janice, faithfully served as pastor at the Trinity Assembly Church in New Kensington, PA for 35 years.  

Pastor Vic, ordained as a FG pastor, served with Full Gospel Assemblies throughout a span of 42 years.  His many areas of ministry in which he served over the years within Full Gospel Assemblies, included National and Pennsylvania Regional Conference Leadership, Pennsylvania Regional Representative, Credentials and Affiliations Committee, FG Executive Governance Council, FG Director of Ministry / VP, and ultimately, Senior Trustee. 

Pastor Fisk ministered into the community of New Kensington and to the parishioners of Trinity Assembly Church with a servant’s heart.  And as he reached beyond New Kensington, within his many capacities of leadership ministry through Full Gospel Assemblies, he touched the lives of multitudes the world over. His four decades of ministry is an example of a pillar of faith. A legacy of ministry – an example to all who follow in his footsteps.   Truly, we are able to hear the words of our Lord declaring ‘well done thou good and faithful servant’.     

Please find below the released obituary for Pastor J. Victor Fisk.

I am sure that many FG clergy – you are able to join me today, as I give God thanks that my life and ministry has been touched by the life and testimony of our dear brother in the Lord, Pastor J. Victor Fisk.  Thank you Lord Jesus!   

May our Lord bless and keep each of you,

Pastor Simeon Strauser
