 The VIP Experience from the Door to the Pew Every Sunday at Victory Grace Center with Dr. Jasmin Sculark! 

On Sunday November 12, The Savvy Event Guru had a chance to stop by and Fellowship with the GREAT Members of Victory Grace Center Church with Lead Pastor Dr. Jasmin Sculark aka Dr. Jazz!

The welcome received from the door as, I entered Victory Grace Center was both warm and welcoming. 

The Staff engaged with me immediately, welcoming me to the sanctuary.  I was then ushered into the sanctuary and quickly seated with my friend Dr. Renee Allen, who invited me. When I arrived Praise & Worship had begun, and the worship experience was welcomed. 

Hands and voices raised high, the choir sang praise and worship before the service begun. 

Most Pastors, have their own unique way of preaching the gospel and Dr. Jazz is exceptional.  Dr. Jazz brought and preached the word and I left the sanctuary feeling better than when I arrived.  

I was then given the amazing opportunity to sit with Dr. Jazz that week, after service and I got a chance to learn more about the Trinidad born Pastor.

The Savvy Event Guru:  Dr. Jazz, wonderful, wonderful service!  Thank you. I received just what I needed and a little more to carry me through the week!

The Savvy Event Guru:  Dr. Jazz, can you take me on the Journey of how you answered your "Call" to preach the Gospel?  We can actually begin with where you were born. 

Dr. Jasmin Sculark: Okay that will be perfect!  Well, I was born in Trinidad, in a village called Laventille.  I never really knew my father and tragically my mother passed away when I was 14 years old. 

The Savvy Event Guru:  I am so very sorry to hear that.

Dr. Jasmin Sculark: No, it's okay.  

The Savvy Event Guru: You know sometimes life circumstances can be used as fuel to go "Forward" and do great things in life. 

Dr. Jasmin Sculark: One day when I was fourteen years old, I was invited to church.  Little did I know that day I would be so impacted by the service.  I knew then that was going to Preach!

The Savvy Event Guru:  WOW, that is amazing.  Sometimes it takes some people a lifetime to recognize their calling and you found your within only a few minutes.

Dr. Jasmin Sculark:  I knew then that I wanted to make an impact on people.

The Savvy Event Guru: So, after God spoke to you about your calling, what happen next?

Dr. Jasmin Sculark:  I knew that I needed to come to the United States. I was denied entry into the US 6 times and finally was given the opportunity to come in 1985.  

Dr. Jasmin Sculark:  Once I was in the United States I went to New York and applied to a Bible school and was accepted to an All-White Bible School. 

The Savvy Event Guru:  You sound like a force to be recon with.  You knew the assignment and wasted no time in getting started! 

Dr. Jasmin Sculark:  Thats right!

The Savvy Event Guru: Can you take me on the journey of how you started Victory Grace Center? 

Dr. Jasmin Sculark: Yes, definitely.  So, 8 years ago, Bishop TD Jakes prophesied over me and said "a GREAT door is going to open for me." This was something that stuck by me and in me. 

Dr. Jasmin Sculark: In 2015, I Pastored Jericho City of Praise and left after 1 year.  Then in 2016 in September on Labor Day to be exact, I started Victory Grace Center! 

The Savvy Event Guru: That is amazing Congratulations!  It sounds like that door opened up! 😊 

Dr. Jasmin Sculark: Thank you thank you it has been a blessing! 

Dr. Jasmin Sculark: When Victory Grace Center was started, we began in Bladensburg High School and was there for 2 years. Then we moved to Springdale High School for 1 year. 

Dr. Jasmin Sculark: Not only were we in the building every Sunday but we at Victory Grace Center feed 500-600 people every Saturday. 

The Savvy Event Guru: Only great things will happen when you sow into others.

Dr. Jasmin Sculark:  When the pandemic hit everything shut down and we went Virtual.  For 3 years 120 people met via Zoom for Sunday Service. 

The Savvy Event Guru: The level of commitment and the power of God's Word spoken through you has made such an impact, even during the Pandemic when everything was shut down.

The Savvy Event Guru: So, when did you come back to the building?

Dr. Jasmin Sculark: In August 2022 the Lord said that it is time for you to go back in the building, it's time for you to go back in person.

Dr. Jasmin Sculark:  In January 2023 Victory Grace Center began in person worship services once a month at Restoration Praise Center.

The Savvy Event Guru: There is nothing like the voice of God.  So, when did you moved into the location that you are in today?

Dr. Jasmin Sculark: We began Services every Sunday at 8am at Higher Calling November 5, 2023, so this is our second Sunday at this location. 

The Savvy Event Guru:  Congratulations.  I love your new location. 

The Savvy Event Guru: When people come through those doors on Sunday, what type of experience do you want your guests and members to have?

Dr. Jasmin Sculark: We want people to have a VIP experience!  Everyone is a VIP when they walk through that door. Our Motto is that we treat everybody as a VIP regardless of status, gender, sexuality or color. 

The Savvy Event Guru:  And the VIP Experience is definitely what I experienced when I walked through those doors.

The Savvy Event Guru:  What's Next for Victory Grace Center?  What's next on your agenda?

Dr. Jasmin Sculark: Within the next 90 Days we want to build on the local experience for our guests and members. We want to build a Victorius Experience. 

Dr. Jasmin Sculark: We also want to do more Global preaching. We want to build the online victorious experience.  So, our members will be able to get the Victory in Person experience and the Victory Online Global experience. 

Dr. Jasmin Sculark: We have been fortunate to have over 30 countries and several states represented at Victory Grace Center! Texas, New Jersey, New York, South Africa, Trinidad to name a few. 

Dr. Jasmin Sculark: We want our members to know that they can always stay connected with Victory Grace Center. People will have 3 options to connect online.  Members can connect through Our YouTube Channel, our Facebook Page and Zoom. On both YouTube and Facebook people will get to experience First-hand preaching and on Zoom people will get to experience Engagement. 

The Savvy Event Guru:  Wow Dr. Jazz!  People like variety and Victory Grace Center offers what people want. 

The Savvy Event Guru:  Thank you Dr. Jazz for taking the time out of your busy schedule to speak with me today. I appreciate you tremendously.  

Dr. Jasmin Sculark:  No problem. Thank you!

 WEMODEL USA 2023 Brings Awareness to Human Trafficking in the DMV and Beyond!


    Like many "causes" it's important to build an awareness around the "Cause" that you support.  It's important to rally the people and most important, that you stand for others when others cannot stand for themselves.


**The Department of Justice, defines Human Trafficking as a crime involving the exploitation of a person for labor, services, or commercial sex. (

    WEMODEL USA has made it their mission to help Women who have suffered, who have endured and who have been a VICTIM of Human Trafficking. 


    Started in 2017 the WE in WEMODEL USA stands for "WOMEN EMPOWERMENT".  The goal behind this organization is to " discover, inspire, empower and uplift all women to achieve their next level of success. ( 

    WEMODEL USA is an organization that also thrives to Connect, Protect and Provide for Women. This modeling and talent recruitment agency whose goal is to promote female entrepreneurs as well, is located in the Washington, DC, Northern VA areas. WEMODEL USA wants to raise a greater awareness on the "Global Issue" of Human Trafficking.  This is a crime that effects many people around the world to include men and children, but women are a greater target. 


    The Founders and Owners of WEMODEL USA is Ms. Patrica Watts and Ms. Phoenix Skye Jasmine Smith.

    The fashion show was phenomenal, and the guests were ecstatic. The models really stepped out and did an amazing job. 


Fashion Gala & Charity Event July 29, 2023

    WEMODEL USA, has had a busy year with all ROADS leading to July 29, 2023 for the Annual Fashion Gala and Charity event.   With the amount of time and planning that went into facilitating these events it would only be natural for the Finale event to be just a remarkable as the events before. 

    On Saturday July 29, 2023, I had the pleasure of attending the Annual WEMODEL USA Fashion Gala & Charity Event. This phenomenal event took place at the MGM National Harbor Hotel & Conference Center.  Show-Time for this event began at 4:30pm.


    This event was not just about the fashion, or the models and the designers, but more so about the "Cause" and the Awareness for Human Trafficking. 

    WEMODEL USA, understands that in order to continue their flight and raise awareness for Human Trafficking, it's important that we see and hear from the Survivors themselves.  On this evening the guests were able to listen firsthand, to the stories of the strong phenomenal Women, who experienced, who survived and who stood and continue to stand in the GAP for other women. 


    There was a Panel of 4 Women and 1 Moderator, with Moderation done by Mayor Cashenna Cross.

    The goal of the "Victim to Victor" Panel segment was for guests to hear each Woman tell their story. Tell their story of survival.  Tell the story of how each woman transition from being a Victim to becoming a Victor!

"Victim to Victor" Speaker Ms. Monique Smith mentioned that she is the "OLDEST Living Jane Doe".

Video by The Savvy Event Guru"Victim to Victor" Speaker Dr. Michelle Mras uses the guiding principle "that every day is a gift".

    The "Victim to Victor" Panel segment was a classic example of how you can turn your pain into purpose.  Each lady told a story of horror and strength that left the audience in "Awe" of their journey. Each story was very powerful.  These women are CHAMPIONS! 

The Victim to Victor Panel segment lasted for about a little more than an hour.

    Located near the area reserved for the Panel Segment, were 4 "situational examples" of "Human Trafficking". This idea was brilliant and once again brought the focus of this event back to the awareness of Human Trafficking.

The Venue & Decor:

    WEMODEL USA could have had their Fashion Gala & Charity Event at any location in the DMV area.  The decision to use the 135,000 sf MGM National Harbor Hotel with its 308 Hotel Rooms and 2,500 sf of meeting and event space, was an excellent choice. 

    The decor was exceptional for the gala event. A "Balloon Arch" Step and repeat with a Pink carpet greeted guests at the door.  The room was dressed with tables in white table clothes, throughout and around the perimeter of the room. The stage was lined with 2 rows of chairs on each side. The staged was accompanied with a large screen.  Located near the end of the stage was the photo pit with photographers for the event and the judge's table. 2 podiums sat on both sides of the stage near the front for the hosts. Both the event tables and chairs that lined the stage were accompanied with the WEMODEL USA 2023 Magazine. The decor was sleek, appropriate, simple but very classy. 

    Groove Entertainment provided the Event Lighting, Drapes and DJ Munny aka Brian provided the Music.

    When choosing a venue for your event, you want to make it as easy as possible for your guests arrive. With the wrap around parking and local garages situated around the venue the MGM afforded guests the luxury of ample parking.

The Experience:

    WEMODEL USA did an extraordinary job with their 2023 events.  This organization truly does an amazing job with building the awareness for Human Trafficking and all of what WEMODEL USA does will help women, men and children rise above any horrific  experience of Human Trafficking. 

    As someone who attends Fashion Shows and Charity events on a regular, I always look for an experience when attending these events.  My experience begins the minute I check-in at the registration table.  When I arrived to the WEMODEL USA Fashion Gala  Event, the folks at the Registration Table were very welcoming and helpful with regards to seating, etc. Everyone was pleasant and I was able to get event footage I needed for the event with ease. 

    The "Victim to Victor's" Panel Event was a great additional to this event. Most of the time, when attending Fashion Events, you only come to see the fashion but it was a PLUS to be able to hear the stories and meet the Survivors on the Panel. This was a wonderful experience. 

    Guests were able to enjoy passed hors d'oeuvres while David Valeriano, Mr. DC 2023 serenaded the audience with song right before the fashion show began. Guests such as Mr. Ean Williams, Founder of DC Fashion Week was in attendance along with Celebrity guest Doc Mobi.  

    My overall experience at this event was great!  There were no long lines, I was able to find my seat with ease and I was able to get the event footage with no problem. This was also a great networking event. Many people from the Washington, DC Metropolitan Fashion scene were in attendance.  WEMODEL USA was able to incorporate a good balance of both fashion and awareness for Human Trafficking.  The evening ended with a Swag Bag takeaway for guests, which is always a classic gesture. 

    WEMODEL USA continues to fight to bring awareness to Human Trafficking through fundraiser events, panel events, real-life survivor stories, entrepreneurship, mentoring, etc.  This fight will not be over until all people are free from the abuse of Human Trafficking.
