History of Christian Outreah Centre

Australia (Origin)

Birthed out of a passion for God and a vision for revival through Australia, Christian Outreach Centre began in Brisbane, Australia, in 1974. With unprecedented momentum, the vision spread, to incorporate many Australian cities and towns soon extending its influence to other nations of the earth.

The powerful preaching was gospel based and resulted in many people coming to know Jesus Christ. Hundreds were experiencing a new dimension of God’s Spirit, as they found new freedom in praise and worship and saw God move in miracles and healings.

From the initial 25 people meeting in a room, this pioneering movement has exploded to include thousands of people in more than 40 nations.

In 1993, a European base was established by Australian Pastors Ashley & Ruth Schmierer. They pioneered a church in Brighton, England, which has grown to be a strategic apostolic European base, outworking the vision that God has given to Christian Outreach Centre, throughout the United Kingdom, Western and Eastern Europe and now incorporating other nations of the world.
Christian Outreach Centre has activated its vision by running pastor’s and leader’s training schools, regional gatherings, and other events targeted to train and equip God’s leaders of the future. Churches are raised up and labourers are sent with the goal to reach every person on the planet with the love of the Lord Jesus Christ. This practical love is also administered through Christian Outreach Centre’s European humanitarian aid organisation ‘Global Compassion’.
Our aim is to impact Europe and beyond with hope and vision, to be a positive force for change and reformation in our nations. Together we will “Reach our World for Christ”.

Heart of the Movement

Christian Outreach Centre is one body of people, joined by relationship, meeting in many geographical locations.

Our expressed aim is to win many nations for the Lord Jesus Christ as a people of one heart, one mind and one purpose.

As is true in every situation, our determination to succeed must exceed the determination of the devil to prevent us.

Therefore, our determination to maintain our precious unity will always be strong, because God has said that where there is unity, He will command His blessing.

We must, at all costs, nurture our love for one another as brethren, attacking criticism and separation as plagues.

Our unity is a blessing above price. Guard it well!
