About Us

Pastor Benedict & Shoba Fernando

Rev Ben was brought to salvation by observing the actions of his God-fearing wife. He began his ministry as a youth leader with his wife Shoba. As the ministry grew, so did God’s blessing! He's been in the Lord's service since 1993 and has been strengthened by the Hand of the Lord.

Rev Ben ministers to his church Victory Life Church alongside his wife Shoba and their two sons and four daughters. Currently based in Colombo, Sri Lanka, Rev Ben is an international preacher who has traveled to more than 20 countries humbly carrying the mantle of God on his life!


The story of how the Rev Ben Facebook live videos began is truly a God appointed one. While driving his daughter to work, Rev Ben would share with his family great revelations God shared with him during his daily morning personal prayer time. His moniker ‘Rev Ben’ stemmed from these new revelations, abbreviated from ‘Revelation Benedict’. His family being immensely blessed by this Word, believed in their heart that the world would benefit by these marvelous revelations. With the support of his family, Rev Ben picked up his phone and began streaming live Facebook videos in Tamil tapping directly into his Divine source with his daughters translating in English. Thus began ‘The Travel of Faith’ (TTF) and the beginning of the Rev Ben online ministry. Since then, the ministry has grown in leaps and bounds by the full Grace of God! God has expanded the ministry to more than 57,000 followers on Facebook and many thousands of viewers watching the daily devotions all around the globe. May all glory be to God!

Victory Life Church

Rev Ben and Shoba began to minister to a small group of friends gathered at home together in the name of the Lord. This was the beautiful beginning of Victory Life Church. Centered on the Word of God the group began to expand. And 25 years later, God continues to show His glory to His people. Victory Life Church is where you live your life in His Victory.

God has been using Rev Ben mightily to reveal His glory to the general public. Victory Life Church has witnessed the hand of God in powerful healings. Victory Life Church is known a report changing church. A cancer cancelling church. A Word based Church. A church where God’s Name is exalted. A church where the prophecies abound.


For people to build upon the revelation that JESUS is the son of God. And to ensure that they too live as the Sons of God that have defeated all the powers of hell.


For all people to be saved and come to the knowledge of the Truth. And for the Body of CHRIST, the Church, to be edified.


  • We VALUE the message of the Cross.
  • We VALUE the unity of brethren.
  • We VALUE family.
