Founded in May 1997, Forerunners International was originally known as Gold Coast Prophets. It was birthed in response to God’s mandate to Lynne Hamilton to “Establish a Prophetic Stronghold” on Queensland’s Gold Coast – Australia’s major tourist centre and an environment encouraging and promoting much new age activity.

Lynne was instructed by God to “Create an environment where My Spirit can move and My people can speak.” Mid-week meetings were commenced based on this directive, attracting people from far and wide, who responded enthusiastically to the great freedom of worship, prophetic flow and crowd participation.

Prophetic and Restoration schools were introduced to effect healing and equipping for the many wounded and confused, but extremely gifted people who didn’t seem to fit ‘church’. We also went regularly into psychic fairs and new age environments seeking to rescue the lost and backslidden, with great success.

Two years later in 1999 a local assembly was formally established to house the numbers of prophetic people who were now calling Gold Coast Prophets ‘home’. New Year 2002 brought a change of dynamic as well as a new name as Gold Coast Prophets transitioned into Apostolic order and function, furthering their prophetic pioneering spirit and heart.

Forerunners International began its journey.

2013 now sees Forerunners International launching Forerunners Bible College, to
Restore HIS Truth to the Nations!
