Directors of Victory School of Leadership
Ryan and Sarah Latham have a great passion to see young people become the best they can possibly be. They believe that in this world, people often settle for second best, but their desire is to inspire people to see themselves in the light of God’s eyes, who calls them great, mighty, powerful, and world changers. The desire of VSL is to father a generation through mentoring, training, and equipping young followers of Christ in every field. This world needs leaders in all areas of life, from all different backgrounds, to stand up and be a representation of the true Gospel.
Ryan and Sarah believe that everything rises and falls on leadership. So no matter what area of life students continue in, the desire of VSL is to raise up doctors, lawyers, artists, teachers, engineers, mothers, fathers, and to release a commitment to excellence, creativity, integrity, passion, and love. In whatever field VSL students go into, they will be leaders who stand above the crowd, and who are ready to change the world around them for God.
Sarah is a graduate of Vanguard University with a degree in Psychology. She is a home school teacher, the anchor of the Latham family, and truly is a MOM to the VSL team. Ryan has been a youth pastor since 2000 and internship Director since 2006. He has worked in both small and large churches, which will help prepare students for their future ministry. Ryan was mentored under Jeanne Mayo through her program the “Cadre” for five years. During this time, Ryan learned a deep love for students, leadership development, and gained a desire to change the world.

Hillary Walsh interned with Ryan and Sarah for four years in California and graduated from SAGU in 2010 with a degree in Psychology. Hillary loves ministry and helping people overcome obstacles in their lives. She enjoys working with internship students, helping them to see the greatness that God has birthed inside of them. She has a desire to help young girls stand for purity, holiness, and to reach for large goals.
Hillary uses her testimony of overcoming great adversity to reach out to the next generation as she speaks at youth ministries and conferences. She challenges students to let no statistic or obstacle stand in the way of what God has called them to do and be. Her desire is to see them embrace their identity in Christ, feel empowered in their walk with God and equipped to fulfill the journey ahead of them. Hillary’s message is one that challenges others to not let fear paralyze them but rather propel them into their future.
