Who we are, our history
The Potter’s House Christian Centre was started up under the name of Christian Fellowship Ministries (CFM) in 1985 by it’s founder Pastor Wayman Mitchell.
The Potter’s House experience good growth during a revival that touched the then little church in Prescott, Arizona. The ‘Jesus Movement’ was sweeping America and multitudes of young people were being profoundly saved and converted to Christ. while many of the traditional churches closed there doors to the long haired, denim clad ‘hippies’, Pastor Wayman Mitchell received them with open arms.
Pastor Mitchell’s solid grounding in the Word of God and his passion to take the Gospel into all the world was soon imparted into the hearts of many zealous new converts, in a short few years, several young couples were launched surrounding cities to pioneer new churches.
In 1978, one of these couples was sent to Perth to begin a new church, following the pattern that had been set in Prescott Arizona. From the beginning the emphasis was Evangelism, Discipleship, Church Planting and World Evangelism.
25 years later that one church planted into Perth has in turn planted dozens of couples that have planted over 200 churches including a church in Walthamstow, East London.
The Potter’s House, Swansea was pioneered and pastor by a couple that was sent out of the church in Walthamstow and we seek to serve our local community and to fulfil the great commission.
