Taking the gospel to the streets

OAC Ministries finds as many creative ways as possible to present the good news of the love of God, especially in the open air and often in partnership with churches, schools, camps and major events. We’re part of Open Air Campaigners International, a worldwide interdenominational mission.

We partner with churches

We love encouraging local churches with their evangelism, especially as we recognise it can be challenging. We could run a training course for you, or deliver an open-air or church mission, or run a holiday club, for example. We can also support you with your schools work. Just let us know how we can help…

What we offer churches

We go into schools

We have one of the most extensive and effective schools ministries in the UK: headteachers trust us because we’re professional, reliable, and sensitive to schools’ needs and concerns. Ask us about fresh, attention-grabbing and imaginative lessons & collective worship in both primary and secondary schools…

Report from OAC Romania:-

"It has been a great week at the OAC camp in the mountains of Romania. It was exciting to see the outside of the camp building finished. Because of this outside work being completed they were able to increase the number of campers. This week was the biggest in number EVER! 82. Praise God. Here are some pics of different things happening during the week. I spoke on heroes from the Bible using the sketch-board a couple of times and also PowerPoint pics There is still so much more to do (building-wise) at this camp. But more about this in another post. In the meantime celebrate with me as we praise God for these children who are hearing the Gospel. Many for the first time. Thanks for your prayers."

Thanks to those who have supported this project over the years.

A great story from a friend of OAC working in Turkey:-

This past weekend "Andy" and his roommate walked up to a guy in the park to tell him about Jesus. As soon as they explained why they came to him, he burst out crying. Andy's roommate at first thought he might be angry at them. Instead, the man explained how the night before he had had a dream in which some strangers had come up to him, prayed for him, and through their prayers he was healed of cancer. He ended up going with them to their church nearby, where they prayed for healing. Apparently he has an appointment tomorrow regarding the state of his cancer remission; let's pray it'll be all gone! He made a confession of faith at the church this weekend but let's keep praying for him!
