Pastor Stefan and Vanessa, the senior pastors of Victory Christian Centre believe that the five-fold ministry are given by God to equip the church for service. We are blessed to have pastors who are gifted teachers and are passion to help equip the body of Christ.
Pastor Stefan has written a number of spiritual growth courses which have been running in our church for over 20 years. We are now taking our training to the next level. Through a divine connection with the Christian Family Church International (CFCI) our pastors have been able to realise the 2nd phase of their mandate from God.
Since February 2013 Victory Christian Centre has been running an internationally accredited Bible College under the auspices of CFCI Bible College. VCC is the first non CFCI member church to be approved to run a campus for a CFCI satellite Bible College.
We are excited to offer this excellent training opportunity to the wider church community in our region, with the ultimate goal of equipping God’s church in New Zealand.

Message from Drs. Theo and Beverley Wolmarans
"Dr. Beverley and I, and the Pastors from Christian Family Church are proud to present Christian Family Church International Bible College that Incorporates the School of Timothy's. This Unique concept in Word based Biblical training is a simple way to study and will occupy one night per week for those studying part-time.
"The curriculum has been especially designed to take a born again believer from to spiritual immaturity to maturity, fully assured in their walk with God.
Should you as a student, believe that God has called you into full time ministry, comprehensive training will be provided through the School of Timothy's. This third phase of your training is the most exciting because, on completion, you will be directed into establishing a ministry. The key focus of this Bible School is to equip 'Timothy's' to plant churches and Bible Schools throughout the world applying the God given principles entrusted to Dr. Beverley and myself."
May God's grace empower, direct and strengthen you on this journey as it has on ours. We as the founding Pastors know beyond a shadow of doubt that you will reach your full potential in Christ as you commit to discovering God's destiny for you through Christian Family Church Bible College."
Christian Family Church was planted in 1979 and established its first Bible College in 1983. We have come a far way since our inception; having trained over 5000 students for successful ministry, embracing an evolving curriculum our focus has been to remain relevant in a changing society. We now offer a full international accreditation to bachelor’s level.
CFCI Bible College curriculum is ministry based; we are resolute in our goal to plant and establish Word based churches and Bible colleges globally.
