Our Mission Partners
WCOC is committed to Christ’s command to make disciples of all nations so works in partnership with a number of Christian ministries and individuals to help fulfil this goal. Through our partners we are able to increase our impact in our local community and worldwide (Acts 1:8).
+ African Inland Mission (AIM)
Len and Robbyn Lesleighter have served with Africa Inland Mission since mid 2006. Len is the Australian/Asia-Pacific Mobilising Region Director and Robbyn is the Finance Officer. Their role is to oversee the mobilising of people, prayer and resources for the ministry of AIM in Africa, where AIM’s focus is to reach Africa’s unreached people groups.
Their mobilisation role is particularly focussed on Australia and New Zealand. They also work with the AIM committee in Hong Kong and helped establish an AIM Director and Council in Korea. They lived in Africa for 6 months in 2006/07, and have regular trips back to the continent. Prior to joining AIM, Len and Robbyn served for more than 6 years in the administration and leadership of Mobile Mission Maintenance based in Victoria.
+ Special Religious Education (SRE)
Every week during the school year, dedicated volunteers are teaching literally thousands of local public school children about God, the Bible and important Christian truths. WCOC helps provide teaching materials, teachers, and dedicated prayer support for this work. To find out how you could be involved in this ministry, speak to Mary Sponberg-Macready.
+ CCTSI College Indonesia, GMP
GMP’s partnership in Indonesia focuses on the Indonesian Church of Christ Theological School (CCTSI) in Salatiga - whose vision is to train church planters and equip young people to follow Jesus. Students are trained and equipped for ministry during their four years of study, spending weekends travelling to village settings where they build relationships, share their faith, assist local churches and begin the process of planting new churches. The final practicum included in their studies involves living in a church planting and ministry setting for one year.
GMP helps subsidise student college fees and assists students with the costs of travelling to their rural church planting and ministry settings. GMP also helps to nurture pre-existing Churches of Christ churches and new church planting projects in Indonesia, providing support by mentoring church leaders.

Wayne and Katelyn Tso and their two young boys, Boston and Everett, have relocated to Newcastle, NSW to follow God's purpose for their lives.

His work includes meeting with students one-on-one and in groups around the Word to pray with, support and disciple. He is there to also train and facilitate students as they plan activites including Bible studies, Christian outreach and social events.
