Short Term Missions

Student missionary sharing the gospel with inner-city children
Student missionary sharing the gospel with inner-city children

Come by yourself or bring a friend, youth group or college team to one of our cities for spring break or a summer mission trip for a week , weekend or longer. These trips transform young people's lives as they experience their faith in a practical way. Team members will learn how to share their faith in the classroom and then go out to experience sharing their faith with both children and adults.

For many this is a life-changing experience. Many teens and college students go home with a new fire for God and the tools to reach their own circle of influence. The experience of sharing their faith will enable them to more freely and confidently share with their friends.

Proclaiming the gospel builds student missionaries' confidence in God and themselves.

OAC short-term missionary experiences teach:

  • Faith: Sharing your faith with strangers is pretty scary for most of us, especially at first! This experience will force you to exercise faith and will lead you to depend on God for the boldness to witness for Him.

  • Knowledge: In a day of open-air evangelism you might speak with a dozen or more people about the gospel. People will ask you questions you have never thought of! The knowledge and experience gained sharing with strangers in the open air is equally useful in sharing God's word with friends, neighbors, co-workers, and schoolmates.

    Our Boston staff hosts many youth mission teams every year.
  • Service: Open air evangelism is really not a glamorous thing; it is hard work, and the results are not always 100% encouraging. This is a good thing! It teaches student missionaries to serve God diligently and faithfully, and to trust in Him to bless the preaching of the gospel.
