Pastor Crystal Krachunis was not born in a glass house. She didn’t know her dad and moved around a lot with her mom. She was introduced to drugs and a party life at an early age. Her mom was a bad alcoholic. She was sexually abused, abandoned and left to raise herself. Pastor Crystal had no knowledge of God, but read Revelation when she was 16 and knew Jesus was real.
At age 17 she overdosed on drugs and called out for God to save her. He did, but she still did not surrender. In 1995, at 23 yrs, her life was in a pit; she was poor, miserable, destitute and lost. He found Crystal. He raised her and filled her with His wonderful Spirit and thus began her new life in Christ.
Pastor Crystal met Pastor Matt in January of 1998 while living in San Antonio, TX where she grew up. The Lord gave her a dream of them building a church together and they were married 5 months later. They spent 6 years in the Army and then moved to Washington, where together they planted Faith and Victory Church in 2003. Pastor Crystal has been called to preach the Word to women so that they would know His amazing Grace and transforming power of the Holy Spirit. She wants all women to walk fully in their calling and find their identity in Christ alone. He still saves. He still transforms. He still makes you brand new!
Pastor Matt and Crystal continue to lead Faith and Victory church and also to raise their two kids, Gabe and Faith, and their dog Ranger. Click on Pastor Crystal’s complete sermon list to see all of her sermons. Below are some of our favorites.
