One of the cornerstone principles at Victory Lane is the importance of a family mission. Each family develops a family mission as part of the camp session experience, and this mission defines how they engage with one another and within the Victory Lane community.
For Tiffanny Youngquist, Victory Lane’s Assistant Director, her family’s mission to care for children in various life circumstances has led her to make a major life shift… a life shift that means a change in her role with Victory Lane.
After serving with Victory Lane since 2014, Tiffanny will begin a new chapter to focus on the Youngquist’s growing family. This chapter began through the influence of Victory Lane.
Shortly after the Youngquist family moved to New Castle, they attended church where they met Brett and Paige Fischer. Tiffanny noticed Paige was wearing a Victory Lane shirt and asked about what the organization entailed. The rest is history.
Tiffanny and her family attended their first Victory Lane camp session in 2014. During that camp, she served in a wide variety of roles. She assisted with planning, volunteered with families, and filled in anywhere she was needed.
When Tiffanny began her journey with Victory Lane, the organization was still in its infancy. Over the years she has watched one camp evolve into two, one staff member turn into a four-member team, and ten families grow to well over 100.
“Victory Lane is home for my family,” Tiffanny explained. “It is family. It is encouragement. It has helped my family grow and given us the confidence we needed to begin our foster journey.”
This journey, through developing and living out a family mission, is what lead Tiffanny to her decision in stepping back from Victory Lane.
“God has called me out to focus on the children we are fostering,” Tiffanny said.
Tiffanny’s next chapter will still include Victory Lane. She still plans to attend camp in 2021, Victory Lane events, and be a part of the community. She will always have a place with Victory Lane, just not in the administrative role she has now.
“I’m so excited to see the continued evolution Victory Lane is going to see in the upcoming years,” Tiffanny added. “God is using this transition for growth, not just for me but also for Victory Lane.”
As far as a replacement for Assistant Director-- the perfect fit is out there, and the process to find that person continues.
Tiffanny wanted to transition out with a few words, “I want to thank each person involved with Victory Lane for giving us a chance and letting me be a part of your lives and for all of the great memories. Brett, thank you for taking a chance on me. What a wonderful ride it has been! I will continue to look forward to campfire testimonials and making connections with all of you.”
Tiffanny’s last Victory Lane event as Assistant Director will be Bounce into the New Year, held on December 31st from 11 a.m.- 2 p.m. at Fierce Fun Center. Click here to RSVP for the Bounce into the New Year event.
