From the original COTRI Bylaws comes the following excerpt denoting the vision imparted by God for the establishment of what would become a thriving, successful international ministry organization, a worldwide, mission-based network of thousand’s of affiliate churches.
“God has impressed upon our hearts that the local churches need to be related in some way; that a meaningful relationship, or partnership, should be established among them. We believe that Church on the Rock International ‘COTRI’, will provide an excellent opportunity for local churches all across the world to establish these relationships.”
COTRI was founded as Church On The Rock North America, and is made up of FELLOWSHIP, ASSOCIATE, PLANTED, and CHARTER churches as well as missionaries and organizations. It is our desire to fellowship with other churches and organizations of like vision, who are committed to reaching this generation for Christ.
COTRI was originally founded as Church on the Rock – North America to provide a network of related and churches and ministries.
