Deacon Victor Zou   Deacon Victor was first introduced to Vinewood through Crossroads Christian Fellowship, and has been a member since. He's passionate about developing community, and is a firm believer that Godly fellowship is one of the greatest pleasures in life. At Vinewood, he serves as a youth counselor for the Agape youth fellowship, small group leader for the Living Stones Fellowship, and part of the Deacon board. During the day, he works as a high school English teacher in San Francisco. When he's not doing any of those things, he's probably feverishly trying to finish a book, traveling abroad, or eating out with friends.
