During Vicki’s 35 years of ministry, her life demonstrated the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ. She ministered in countries all around the world, including England, Switzerland, Australia, and Germany, among others. As an evangelist and a soul winner, Vicki led crusades in New England. Over 20,000 people were saved in the three years that records were kept, and out of this revival many churches were planted. In Chicago, Vicki started a ministry called “New Day House,” an outreach that provided housing for unwed mothers and their children.
Vicki was the author of several books on Christian life, including El Shaddai (now in a new edition titled More Than Enough) and How You Can Have Joy. As a gifted vocalist and psalmist, Vicki wrote many songs and recorded a total of 8 albums. A pioneer in the area of Christian radio and television, she produced two television programs including It’s a New Day and Vicki Live. She also appeared as a regular guest on all of the major Christian television networks of her time.
It is truly impossible to categorize Vicki’s ministry. Her influence transcended Christian denominations and movements. She broke down racial, gender, and cultural barriers. While in South Africa, Vicki was the first person to hold interracial worship services after the end of apartheid. She was also a trailblazer for women in ministry. She broke ground and paved the way for the women of today to take their place in the body of Christ.
Through Vicki’s ministry the sick were healed, the oppressed were delivered, and men and women of all walks of life encountered the life-changing reality of the Living God.
Vicki passed away in January 2008.
