The church grew rapidly, outgrowing a number of venues. It gained a reputation for including marginalised people, including the homeless, Australian Aborigines, drug addicts and ex-criminals. By 1977 COC numbered well over 1000 people, and began establishing new congregations in nearby towns. , the congregation produced and funded the television program 'A New Way of Living' included many claims of miraculous healing. By 1985, the Brisbane church met in a purpose-built 5000-seat auditorium. It is now known as Citipointe Church. The COC has had an impact politically in Queensladn in particular.
In 1990, Clark Taylor resigned and Neil Miers was appointed International President. Under Miers leadership the movement expanded to include churches in over 30 countries. Following Miers resignation, Ross Abraham heads the COC in Australia.
Both Taylor and Miers have founded new church organisations since their resignations. Both were told they were not welcome in COC churches.

A third school was built and opened in 1982 in Toowoomba called, Christian Outreach College Toowoomba.
