Our History

In 1992 three couples (Dennis & Agnes Penner; Ray & Chris Quinn and Jim & Karen Clarke) and their families gathered together to pray and seek God.  We needed to discern if it was His will to form a fellowship of believers. We sensed His heart for us would be to model the pattern we had seen biblically in the New Testament.  Our role as a church would be the advancement of the kingdom of God. God’s answer to our prayer and the Holy Spirit’s leading was to begin meeting on a regular basis, with Salt and Light Ministries providing oversight.

The name, Durham Christian Fellowship (DCF), was chosen as we sensed that our local church sphere would eventually extend, relationally, into the Durham Region.

Recent ministry has introduced an apostolic vision as being part of our mission which includes being a part of The Ripple Network, which is lead by Kenn and Cheryl Gill.  Our desire is for the entire five-fold ministry (Eph. 4: 10-13) to be functioning in our church body, encouraging the whole body of Christ.
