Tony and Marilyn Fitzgerald are founders and apostolic team leaders of Church of the Nations. COTN is an international family of apostolic clusters of churches and kingdom ministries related through love and commitment to see the kingdom of God established on earth.
Brought up in Christian homes, in Tasmania, Australia, Tony and Marilyn’s lives took an unexpected turn. At 18, Tony was diagnosed with cancer. After months of hospitalization and recovery, they committed their lives completely to God’s purposes. They were married in 1970 and entered into denominational ministry training.
In 1975, they moved to England and began a journey that has taken them to the four corners of the earth. In 1978 the Lord gave Tony the vision of resource bases serving networks of churches and in 1979 the seed of what was to become COTN was planted.
Countries Ministered In
Today COTN has established kingdom influence in more than 50 countries. Tony and Marilyn see the church as a safe house, a covenant family of believers who are fathered, discipled and mentored to fulfill their kingdom destiny. “Church” only finds its true meaning in the context of the “gospel of the kingdom.”
