Inclusiveness within Limits

no comments | Friday, August 9th, 2013
Working together with local churches, OAC equips others to engage with their community in creative ways. Known for their innovative approaches, OAC Ministries (Open Air Campaigners) aim to host conferences that challenge as well as inspire. The OAC Evangelists’ Conference from the 4th to the 8th of November at Hebron Hall,Cardiff, welcomes everyone interested in proclamation evangelism. Yet speakers were selected for a provocative reason. ‘We deliberately invited speakers from a spectrum of church expressions so that all of us will be challenged at some point,’ explains National Director Peter Kennelly. ‘I’ve ...

Youth and Truth

A high point in outreach: OAC Evangelist Dave Workman and a youth club member at an annual camp outing. Wild parties have great appeal for young people in their teens. Proven results include an increase in drinking, drugs and escalating violence on our streets. One typical young girl of 16, Gemma (not her actual name), was heavily into partying and fighting. Yet for months, she spent time grilling OAC Ministries (Open Air Campaigners) Evangelist Dave Workman about issues like creation versus evolution, and heaven and hell. Last month, Gemma realised the truth ...

On the Cutting Edge

no comments | Saturday, July 27th, 2013
Photo by Zuriel Media On the Cutting Edge ‘Typically, we work with many people in theWest Midlandswho are on the edges of church life or outside it,’ explains OAC Ministries (Open Air Campaigners) Evangelist John Heywood of Stourbridge. Yet, his teams are on the cutting edge in reaching people of different ethnicities and including the marginalised, the poor and those with special needs. Using both friendship and preaching, outreach teams go to places of public interest, parks and shopping malls. Complementary gifts are developed so that one person may illustrate a message with ...

Buzz Words that Work

no comments | Saturday, July 27th, 2013
Some buzz words appear to be short lived. They drop out of use almost as quickly as they gain popularity. But Christians inPlymouthuse buzz words that work to engage with the wider community. At the Buzz Club, a Saturday morning drop-in geared to families, simple words of welcome help engage with people. Just asking, ‘how are you?’ or commenting on their children starts to develop relationships. ‘Building relationships is what the Buzz Club is all about,’ explains founder Anne Brindley, Families Pastor of Mutley Baptist Church where the drop-in takes place. ...

Europe

no comments | Friday, February 26th, 2010
  At the Centre of Europe Brussels is considered to be at the centre of Europe. Not, of course, geographically, the city that is very much to the west of the continent, but the ‘idea’ of Brussels, the metaphor for the power of the European Union. It is fitting then that just outside this city 16, or so, National Directors and Evangelist from many parts of OAC’s work in Europe have joined together. Their OAC Europe Zone Conference form 22nd to the 25th of February enabled them to pray and plan for the ...

Making the Gospel Accessible Telling the good news of Jesus to people where they are is the motivation behind an evangelism training course starting on the 29th of January 2011. OAC Streetwise aims to present the truths of the Gospel in a way that is accessible to all. ‘Jesus himself was an open-air preacher and as we know many flocked to hear his message being proclaimed in such a clear way. We believe we need Christians today to be following His example,’ said OAC National Director Peter Kennelly. Streetwise includes six training sessions over ...
