The network is the result of years of international ministry and networking among many charismatic Christian ministers. Whilst the network had existed in an informal way for several years it began to form a clear structure in 2015 through conversations between several international charismatic church leaders.
It became clear that some of the existing informal international networks could be strengthened by being encompassed within a suitable international structure. It was decided that an organisation should be formed which could facilitate the expanding work and provide a future home for those seeking affiliation. Bishop Steven Lyn Evans was encouraged by senior church leaders such as Archbishop Metropolitan Doyle Volentine (USA) and Archbishop Doye Agama (UK) to lead the network as Presiding Bishop. They have both continued to offer support as he directs the significant and rapidly expanding work. The diversity of peoples and backgrounds within TICCN is remarkable as is the impact that TICCN has had on so many lives. We are reminded that whoever, or wherever our network members are: “There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all” (Ephesians 4:4-6).
