History

The history of CLIC Church is one filled with God’s divine appointments, miraculous coincidences and provisions. Till today we’re still amazed and astonished at how all these have unfolded. To God be all the glory.

In the beginning of 2000, God prompted a stirring in the heart of our Senior Pastor Ken Teo even as he was heading back from Medan to serve in Riverlife Church in Singapore. Part of his ministry included teaching in Lifeway College in Auckland NZ which brought back wonderful memories of Australia. God then impressed upon Pastor Ken to set up Re-Gen Ministries Inc. to be based in Melbourne, Australia for the “Regeneration of our Generation.” It was to be a ministry with passion for Missions, Leadership and Church Planting for the next generation.

In 2004 Pastor Ken met up with the Senior Pastor of Evangelical Community Church Inc. (ECCI) Blackburn South through divine intervention and set together a new partnership to plant a new church in the southeastern corridor of Melbourne.

Together with Pastor Geoff & Ava Stafford and many others, the new church known as “ECC Casey” (Now called CLIC Church Inc.) commenced within six months of Pastor Ken and his family’s arrival in Jan 2005, followed by the first home-group in July 2005.

ECC Casey Church kicked off its first Sunday evening service at Brentwood Park Community Centre in Berwick in Mar 2006 and officially opened in April 2006. Truly it was a God given place for the church at the right time and there was a sense of something being birthed that will count for eternity.

In 2007, ECC Casey Church reached out to overseas students studying and living on campus at the Monash Berwick campus and together with the Overseas Christian Fellowship (OCF) Clayton campus launch another branch right here in Berwick.

ECC Casey became incorporated as an autonomous entity and Casey Life International Church Inc. was born on 16 March 2008. Not long after, God opened doors for us to have our first Sunday morning service in the Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) Church hall here in Berwick. Through miraculous intervention we bought over the SDA Church hall in Aug 2009 and finally had a place to call our own!

On May 2011, Casey Life International Church Inc. became CLIC Church Inc. as we rebranded ourselves for the new season that God has brought us into – embracing His people, equipping and empowering them for what God has called them to do.

In Oct 2012 CLIC was privileged to have Pastor John Janman stepped up as Senior Pastor of the church while Pastor Ken took on a new role as Missions Pastor. At the end of 2012 we kicked off the building program of an extension hall to the existing premise.

2014 was a year of change as Pastor John Janman moved on from CLIC and Pastor Ken returned to join us as our Senior Pastor. Since then, many more families have joined us in doing life together in God’s kingdom family.

So come CLIC with us today as we welcome you to join our family. We love to have you with us building God’s kingdom together and we can’t wait to see what God will bring to CLIC as His good and perfect will unfolds before us!
