It begins with our vision to see people reached through salvations teach them the word and empower them through Jesus to serve.

The church is so much more than a service on the weekend. It’s about connecting with other people, growing in your faith, and building a strong foundation for your family. We desire to work as one family to serve in His kingdom. We want every person to have the opportunity to use is the God-given talent to serve.

Pastor Theo

In obedience to a call from the Lord, Pastor Theo and his wife Manju together with their three children migrated to New Zealand from Sri Lanka in the year 2001. They left behind lucrative jobs and totally trusted the Lord for guidance and provision.

This was a massive move of faith which also fulfilled a prophecy given by a man of God who had prayed over them.

The prophecy clearly outlined the move to a country that had four stars in its flag, consisted of two islands and had volcanic activity. However the Lord did not reveal the name of the country at the time.

While in Sri Lanka Pastor Theo was actively involved in Christian Ministry for several years in addition to being leader of the Full Gospel Men’s Fellowship of the Colombo Chapter. A year after settling in their adopted country the Nayagam family started a home group affiliated to the East City Elim Church. The Falkiner family from Canada also joined the group.

Both families worked closely together and their efforts saw the advent of the first Four Square Church in New Zealand. The congregation met at a primary school hall each week.

In the year 2007 the Lord spoke to Manju in a vision clearly showing a city, people and Pastors Theo and Robin ministering in partnership. Both families took the matter to the Lord in prayer for a whole year.

In April 2008 Pastor Theo and Manju took another step of faith in planting a new branch of the growing Four Square Church in New Zealand. They were well supported by Pastor Robin John and his family who by this time had moved to New Zealand for a brief period.
