It all started back in 1987…

When Pastor Bruce Monk knelt down in a cattle track on his farm and had a significant encounter with the Holy Spirit. That encounter would ultimately see many lives changed. Pastor Bruce and Pastor Helen sold the farm and took up the call in 1987 to relocate their young family of 4 children, to pastor the Auckland Apostolic Church. The Church at the time had about 30 people in it, 7 were retired Pastors and youth ministry was the Monk kids. The Auckland Church would undergo several name changes from Auckland City Church to its current name of Equippers Auckland Church.

By the year 2000 Pastors' Bruce & Helen felt the challenge to move to London to plant a Church that would equip people for life through faith in Jesus Christ. Pastor Bruce saw a Church that would see people deployed like arrows being fired across the global, transforming nations with the power of Jesus Christ. As Pastors Bruce & Helen departed for the UK, Pastor Sam & Kathy Monk took on the leadership of the Auckland Church. From this time until now Equippers Church has continued to expand across the global, being one big global family in locations such as: New Zealand, UK, USA, Tonga, Switzerland, Germany, Italy and Africa. The story continues...
