Margaret Court was officially ordained into full-time ministry in 1991. In that same year Margaret Court Ministries Inc was established, not only as an outreach ministry to the city of Perth, but one that has since gone out to the nation. In 1995 Margaret established and founded Victory Life Centre Inc, where she is the Senior Minister.
Margaret is a woman of international renown, not only for her unsurpassed feats (62 Grand Slam Titles) in the world of professional tennis, but also for her strong and powerful Christian witness. Her strong and anointed leadership centres around truth, integrity and righteousness, which she feels must return to the church before they will be seen in the world. Having a great love for God, nothing motivates her more than to be instrumental in winning the lost to Jesus.
In recognition of her committed and fruitful ministry, allied with her strong, gifted leadership ability to encourage, train and develop Christian character in those involved in the five-fold ministry, Margaret has been appointed to the following positions:
Trustee in Australia of International Convention of Faith Ministries (ICFM)
Australian Pentecostal Ministers Fellowship (APMF) Steering Committee
Patron of Australian Family Association
Patron of Drug Free Australia
Co-Chair Oceana Empowered21
In honour of her many ministry accomplishments she has received an Honorary Doctorate of Laws (PhD LLD Hon) from Oral Roberts University, Tulsa, Oklahoma USA, made a Member of the British Empire (MBE) and has been made an Officer of the Order of Australia (AO).
The driving force in her call is a love for her nation and the nations and the desire to see God’s people equipped and trained to take back the seven mountains of society.
