Jesus spent most of his ministry talking to people in the streets and marketplaces, and it’s still an effective way to reach people today. You can stop a crowd with a clear and powerful presentation using creative visual aids, and street work can be invaluable for reaching people who wouldn’t dream of accepting an invitation to church.
Ephesians chapter 4 tells us: “So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up.” Therefore, the body of Christ – including local churches – needs evangelists. And yet evangelism can feel really challenging! We understand that. That’s why we’re here to help.
“I really thank God for the courage and professionalism of OAC. At All Souls, we’re desperate to proclaim Christ on the streets of our parish and in the centre of a world capital, and a major reason that we feel able to do this is because of the training and leadership we’ve received from OAC.”
