Meet Dr. Victor S. Couzens
Hi, I’m Victor Couzens, Sr. D.Min. I wear a lot of hats and have a lot of responsibilities. But, I’m really excited to connect with you and hopefully help you maximize your capacity. Over the years I’ve built buildings, traveled the world establishing leaders, and raising up high impact disciples for Jesus Christ who are dominating the market place. I’ve written a few books Marketplace Mentality, The UnCommon Devotional, and Lessons Learned The Hard Way. And I have a couple more in the pipeline.
I’m the Lead Pastor of an incredible church with amazing people in Cincinnati, OH – Inspirational Bible Church, City of Destiny. It’s a marketplace, discipleship, and community empowerment focused church with an apostolic anointing.
School wise. Ok. I got my B.A in Biblical Studies and leadership from Cincinnati Christian University. The M.A in Missions and Leadership came from Indiana Wesleyan University. And I put in the work at United Theological Seminary and earned my D.Min. My dissertation was titled Reclaiming The Apostolic DNA of The African American Church.
I’ve been part of or set on the board of some of the best social engagement and public policy influencing organizations in the world. Groups like NAACP, SCLC, Urban League, and People For the American Way. Just to name a few. Conventions, conferences, marches, rallies and seminars? Yep I’ve been a part of many of them. And occasionally they have asked me to speak. You might have even seen me on CNN, Fox News, BET, The Word Network or The Impact Network. Or heard me on the Tom Joyner Morning Show or Roland Martin’s show. A time or two.
I’m a father, the husband of Abigail, a son, a big brother, a Bishop, an entrepreneur, reformer, strategist, a radio host, a political commentator, community organizer, a humanitarian, philanthropist, intercessor, missionary, part time gardner, revivalist, group trip planner, fitness fanatic, global travel, avid reader and sometimes a binge TV watcher.
But, all that aside I’m also in your corner and I am committed to black excellence, kingdom building, acquiring wealth and seeing you grow, create, overcome, win and be all the Holy Spirit wants you to be. I’m here to teach. But I’m also here to learn.
