VCA Impact is a nonprofit intended to benefit the students and enhance the culture of Victory Christian Academy and, subsequently, our community. We desire to equip students — both inside and outside of the classroom — to impact the world around them.


In 2016, VCA Impact helped students go on our first-ever historical class trip to the East Coast. Integrated with purpose, vision, and challenge, this educational tour included Washington, D.C., Williamsburg, Jamestown, Yorktown, Philadelphia, and New York City.   


In 2018, VCA Impact helped students attend Engage Global’s EXPLORE Extended Weekend, a four-day event in Minneapolis where students received cross-cultural teaching and Christian training.   


In 2022, we coordinated a tour of the MN State Capitol. After, our team volunteered to pack meals for hungry children across the globe at Feed My Starving Children.


In 2023, we sent students in 7th through 12th grades on another successful and amazing Christian tour of the historical East Coast!


In 2025, VCA Impact is planning to coordinate another tour of the MN State Capitol and a FMSC food packing volunteer session.


In 2026 or 2027, we are planning to take another group of students to the East Coast with Our Time in History. Rene is an expert guide with over twenty-five years of professional educational tour experience, having guided more than 10,000 students on East Coast tours, including our own students in 2016 and 2023.

Tentative itinerary for the next tour:

  • Historic Triangle — Jamestown, Williamsburg, Yorktown
  • Washington, D.C. — memorials, museums, and as many sites as we can pack in!
  • Philadelphia — Independence Hall, Liberty Bell
  • New York City — Statue of Liberty, 911 Memorial and Museum

On a tour with Rene, students and educators are instructed in America’s heritage while challenged to rise up and make a difference in our nation. Her inspiring narratives at historically significant places broaden participants’ understanding of current events as well as enlarge their worldview.

Security, professionalism, and excellence are emphasized throughout Rene’s tours. Thousands of her past travelers have described their experience as life-changing; we are confident that our students will agree.


Invest today into the lives of local students and leaders to help empower them to become tomorrow’s worldchangers!

Watch highlights from our 2016 East Coast tour. Looking forward to another life-changing tour for a new round of students in 2026 or 2027. Thank you for your support and donations!
