Triumph DC is a life-giving church in the District of columbia.

Our mission is to be a family of neighborhood churches and a movement of leaders to influence a city that influences the world.
— Pastor Deamon Scapin

Each week, we gather to worship Jesus, connect with each other, and learn together. We are as diverse as the city in which we live, yet unified around the hope and new life we find in Christ.

At Triumph, we want you to discover your purpose and live the life God created for you. Whether you’re brand new at discovering who God is, or have been a Christ-follower for a long time, we invite you to join us! There are opportunities to connect through weekly worship gatherings, community events, Bible studies, social events, and service opportunities.

Our values aren't just idealistic hopes, but practical filters through which we approach life and ministry. At Triumph DC, we seek to represent Jesus and express the goodness of God in a way that is loving, generous, and powerful. These values serve as indicators and evaluators – helping us represent Jesus accurately and completely to the world. They summarize God's mission, define our mission, and are found in the most famous verse in the Bible.

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.”
— John 3:16

Triumph DC began as an invitation from God to influence a city that influences the world.


In 2010, during a family vacation in our nation's capital, God began to stir the hearts of Deamon & Kristine Scapin for the city of Washington, D.C. 

Little did they know that two years later God would clearly and powerfully call them to transition from fifteen years of pastoral ministry at a thriving church in Texas and move their family, life, and ministry across the country to begin a new church in one of the world's greatest cities!

“We gathered in our living room on Capitol Hill with a core of 14 people, in September of 2013, and prayed that God would use us to love and serve the District of Columbia as an extension of Jesus.”
— Pastor Deamon

That 'launch team' prayed, planned, and began laying the foundation of a new life-giving church for the city. God began to connect them with other people from the city, metro area, and other states as the team hosted interest socials, community outreaches, and prayer initiatives.

Over the summer, Triumph DC began hosting the first monthly worship gatherings and the church began to take a fuller shape. On September 7, 2014, Triumph DC launched weekly services and opportunities to connect all over the District.  

Our journey is just beginning and YOU can be a part of the story! Whether you're brand new at discovering who God is, or have been a Christ-follower for a long time, we invite you to join us!

“We look forward to meeting new people who share our mission to be a life-giving church and represent Jesus to others in a loving, generous, and powerful way.”
— Pastor Deamon

Triumph DC is a Spirit-filled Christian community.

We are committed to teaching and practicing what the followers of Christ have believed and practiced since the days of the first apostles.  C.S. Lewis called this body of beliefs and practices Mere Christianity. One ancient writer called it, "that which has at all times and in all places been believed by the whole people of God."

Triumph DC believes in the authority of Christian Scriptures for our life and practice. We affirm and hold to the essential orthodox Christian beliefs found and affirmed in the Apostles Creed and the Nicene Creed.

In addition to the common beliefs and practices of our faith, every local church has unique distinctions and callings. The distinctions create the congregation's culture, personality, and colors the ways in which it expresses Christianity's core doctrines and practices.

In Essentials, Unity; In Non-Essentials, Liberty; In All Things, Charity.

Triumph DC derives its culture from our geographical location, our roots in the Spirit-filled movement, and in the contemporary vision we seek to accomplish.

We echo what has often been said throughout church history: In Essentials, Unity; In Non-Essentials, Liberty; In All Things, Charity.
