Bonner Springs-based Victory Assembly of God building new church in Shawnee

Pastor Tracy Brooks is leading the new church project, which will be called Shawnee West Christian Center.

After more than three decades of planning and saving, Victory Assembly of God in Bonner Springs has begun construction on a new church overlooking K-7 Highway in Shawnee.

Nicknamed “the hill,” the church-owned property at 4945 Old K 7 Road has been part of the church leadership’s dream to build anew. The church had bought the 15 acres in 1988, then with Pastor Norman Springs at the helm. His son, Pastor Tracy Brooks, has since taken over leadership of the church and is overseeing the project.
