Global Family


Regions Beyond is a diverse family of over hundreds of churches in over 30 countries joined in apostolic partnership.

Regions Beyond is led by Steve Oliver and a Global Team, of which Mike Irving is a member. Mike is developing an apostolic sphere of Regions Beyond, working with churches in Australia, South East Asia and Africa.

Regions Beyond has come from and is part of, the Newfrontiers apostolic network that was started by Terry Virgo in the ’60s in the UK. Newfrontiers is a network of thousands of churches all over the world.  For more info about Newfrontiers, click here!

Our partnership with Regions Beyond means we’re part of a global family of churches that are committed to planting and strengthening churches across the nations.

The desire in Regions Beyond is that each church should be a loving, prayerful, worshipping community, centred on Jesus, rooted in the Word of God and fully empowered by the Holy Spirit to be effective witnesses.

This means that we carry a passion not just for our city and for Australia but for the nations and unreached people groups of the world, and we purposefully pursue this by resourcing and releasing people, finance and expertise.



Steve Oliver leads the Regions Beyond Apostolic Sphere that Grace City Church is a part of. Steve & Heather planted and led churches in the central part of South Africa and then they moved to Dubai, UAE to lead and establish Gateway church.


Since then, Gateway Church has flourished and multiplied into two communities and Steve has successfully handed over both congregations. This has allowed Steve to concentrate on leading Regions Beyond, which has also resulted in them moving to London for a season.


Regions Beyond is now a family of over 170 churches worldwide.  Steve brings an apostolic and a prophetic gift to us that will shape us and propel us further into Gods purposes for His church.
