OUR

HISTORY

History
The Potter's House Christian Fellowship Ministries founded and led by Pastor Wayman Mitchell, Senior Pastor of The Potter's House Church of Prescott, Arizona, USA since 1970. This church in Prescott is the church of an entire fellowship of churches that is also known as The Potter's House, Victory Chapel, and The Door. The
Fellowship includes more than 2,050 congregations around the
world. In 1978, a couple from the Prescott church was sent to
Perth to begin a new church, following the pattern that had been
set in Prescott of Evangelism, Discipleship and Church planting.
Since then, that one church launched into Perth has grown into a
local congregation of nearly 400 and is the mother church of the
Australian fellowship holding annual Bible Conferences. In 2010
the Perth church has had the privilege of seeing 201 churches
planted that trace their roots back to that one congregation,
including this church here in Napier NZ.
