Meet our evangelists

Marten Holmes

Marten and Helen Holmes


Marten is the National Director of OAC and Helen is the General Secretary. Marten splits his time between hands on evangelism, children’s and schools ministry and running the organization. Most of Marten’s time is spent in Cornwall but there is inevitably a good proportion spent in other parts of the country working with and training others.

Marten is also a photographer and magician. He often uses conjuring tricks to communicate the truth of the Gospel and has two photographic exhibitions available for evangelistic events.

Helen provides the administrative backup across the whole of OAC as well as support for Marten.
