History


Our college was originally established in 1991 by Ps David Cartledge, a great teacher in the Word of God under the name “King of Kings College”. Then two years later became “Gold Coast College of Christian Ministry”, the first ever Government Accredited Bible College on the Gold Coast. From there Ps Ralph Legge, a Baptist theologian took the reigns and we became Government approved for International Students as “Surfcity International Training College” (known as SCITC). The next principal was Ps David Palmer, a man with profound Bible wisdom, who lived the Word of God powerfully and in 2004 supervised the moving of college from Broadbeach to its current location in the heart of Surfers Paradise.

In 2011 Ps Mark Sceriha and innovator moved Surfcity College forward until 2013 when Jonathon Scoones steered the college into a wonderful partnership with Alphacrucis College.

The current principal Amanda Kleiss answered the call of God in 2015 to equip the next generation of leaders in their future in God.

Throughout this rich history we have not only released leaders into every part of society but have also launched ministry leaders such as:

Pastors Justin and Chrissy Stephney: Snr Pastors Surfcity Christian Church
Pastor Gary McDonald: Snr Pastor of Metro Church campuses Australia wide
Pastor James McPherson:  Snr Pastor of Calvary Church campuses Australia wide
Pastor Lucas Connell:  A sought after international travelling evangelist

Plus, many more international missionaries, pastors, church leaders too numerous to list. Today we still give our all in serving and empowering Christian people in their everyday vocations in every part of society, to live their future in God.
