This church began in 1974 when Pastor Ian Shelton and his wife, Betty, held their first Sunday service in August of that year. Since then, the church has grown and become an influential church behind the scenes in Toowoomba.
It has a strong focus on unity among leaders of Christian organisations and has worked tirelessly to promote this message across Toowoomba and across the nation.
Pastor Shelton was burdened for the education of the young when he saw the secular and humanist education that was being offered to his own children. As a result Toowoomba Christian Academy began in 1979 and has grown to become the largest ministry of Toowoomba City Church.
In 2019, Pastor Shelton began the process of handing the operation of the church over to Pastor Will Curtis and in 2020 Pastor Curtis was appointed the Senior Pastor of the church when Pastor Shelton resigned from his position.
