Our Youth Pastor, Clark Taylor, will be heading this up.Clark Taylor - Youth Pastor Resources:
I remember asking Clark Taylor, the founder of the Christian Outreach Center in Australia, who himself planted around 200 churches in Australia, 11 in one year at his peak.
I asked him how he managed to achieve so much in the past, planting so many churches, seeing so many miracles, etc His answer shocked me:He said to me: 'I loved Jesus, I did it out of passion for Him, but I was a fool'. I asked why, stunned. Then he proceeded to tell me that he would get up at 4 am and stay up till 1 am most nights praying and ministering, fellowshiping and training pastors. After a few years, he started to develop heart problems, which led him to spending 10 years in and out of hospital sick and therefore the result was that the time he thought he saved he lost and a lot more by being sick for 10 year later on, plus it led to a burnout.
The following is a history of Pastor Clark Taylor, written by his wife, Anne Taylor.
The following is some background information about it's founder, Clark Taylor. Clark Taylor was born in Queensland, Australia in 1937. He was a farmer with little formal education. He spent his teen-age years in the Northern Territory on a cattle station. "Taylor presents the image of the typical Aussie, using his cattleman background and his outback accent to the full. His ministry was also noted for it's dynamic style. Falling under the power was a noted feature of Taylor's healing ministry." Clark Taylor became a Christian in Brisbane in 1959 at a Billy Graham Crusade and began to train for the Methodist ministry in 1961. In 1963, he suffered from Cerebral Malaria. I was married to him in 1964, and we had three children. He was baptized in the Holy Spirit in 1967 in quite an interesting way. In that year we were running the William Powell Home for discharged prisoners at Oxley, Brisbane, which was owned by the Methodist Church. One day, as Clark was building pig sties, a friend from the local Methodist Church, George Nichols, was helping him. At times, Clark would become unconscious as a result of the Cerebral Malaria. By 1967, he was having these unconscious turns so frequently that he was unable to work on the farm. One morning, when he was in Oxley Methodist Church, he felt that God said to him, "It's time for you to be healed. He told this to the minister, who replied, "Come down on Tuesday night when the prayer meeting is on and I will pray for you. This was quite remarkable, because in 1967, such things as healings and the baptism in the Holy Spirit were rare in the Methodist Church. At the prayer meeting, Clark started to lapse in unconsciousness, but the people laid hands on him and prayed for him and he was totally healed in that instant. Soon after his arrival, Clark commenced Thursday night Bible studies in the manse. The children and I were away at this time, as Clark was supposed to be studying for exams. Clark spent much time in prayer, seeking the Lord about the special Sunday night meeting. Clark had been praying in a room at the back of the church. When he walked in and saw all those people he did not know what to do. He randomly opened his Bible and started reading. He started to read about Jesus healing people, and then found himself saying, "If you want to be healed, come forward. Many healing miracles occurred, one after another. Later on in the night, Clark preached a very short gospel message and many people streamed forward to be saved. Over the next few days, people came to our home one by one and they were baptised in the Holy Spirit, some of them seeing visions. The Methodist Church leaders decided that it probably be wise to put Clark into Kings College, their theological college at the University, so he became a student there in 1969. In between his studies, he began what became known as the Corinda meetings. These meetings affected what would happen in the future. George Nichols, the man who had introduced Clark to the baptism in the Holy Spirit, had a large home in the Brisbane suburb of Corinda. In 1970, Clark resigned form the Methodist Church. While we were living at The Gap, Clark was waiting on God, giving himself to God and learning from God...but then he got too busy. Clark organized a Ministers' Dinner toÂ be held at Wanganui Gardens onÂ March 9th, 1971. The following is an extract from a letter written by Clark early in 1974. By 1976, Clark was beginning to talk television. Clark Taylor led Christian Outreach Centre during it's first fifteen years.
