Our History

Church on the Rock was founded by Pastors Peter and Sheela Duraisami in May of 1996. Prior to that, they had been serving God in various capacities in secular as well as Christian spheres. In May of 1996, the Lord clearly spoke to them about starting the church. In obedience to the Lord’s leading, and upon confirmation from their spiritual father Apostle Willie F. Wooten, Church on the Rock was launched in May 1996. With a group of seven elders and a few new believers, COTRIM had its humble beginnings in the living room of a friend’s house. Since then, COTRIM has grown numerically and spiritually and has evolved into an international ministry. Our work includes an orphanage in India, caring for needy children in Sri Lanka, sending and supporting long term missionaries in two challenging eastern nations, sending short term mission teams, and organizing medical clinics and evangelistic crusades in developing countries.

Our Affiliation

Although COTRIM is an independent organization, we are primarily accountable to Apostle Willie F. Wooten of Gideon Christian Fellowship, New Orleans. We are also in active fellowship with Pastors Network of the Mission GTA.
