Sonny grew up in New York City and had a troubled youth, before achieving ultimate redemption through finding Jesus. After struggles with gang affiliations and substance abuse, Arguinzoni gave himself to the Lord and became an ordained minister.
Arguinzoni and his wife began taking people into their home from off the streets of Boyle Heights throughout the neighborhood near the former Aliso Village Housing Projects. They welcomed them in to feed them and talk to them about the redemption attainable through faith in God. The ministry grew in the neighborhood and through the years, expanded locations throughout all of California. Through missions and outreach, Victory Outreach founded ministries in numerous continents throughout the world. The greater international congregation is cordially invited to celebrate Victory Outreach's bright future and 50 year milestone.
