Oceanside Church started in Nanaimo in April 1997 in the home of Mike and Deborah Graves who in 1994 felt the call of God to come to Canada and start a church under the covering of New Covenant Ministries International (NCMI). NCMI is an Apostolic Prophetic Team, led by Tyrone Daniel, and birthed in Africa in the 1980's. This team is currently working in both established and new churches in over 80 countries around the world.
As a church, we have committed ourselves to the common vision of NCMI to fulfil the Great Commission of Matthew 28:18-20, "to see a new testament church planted in every village, town, city, province and country on every continent". We make our resources, finances, giftings and people available to support NCMI churches, as together we fulfil this vision. We support the numerous Equip Leadership Training Teams (LTT's) organised locally and internationally, where we gather with other relating churches to celebrate and equip ourselves in the way forward.
