What Do We Do?

Our mission is to take the gospel of Christ out from the church and into the public arena. Day in and day out you will find our evangelists proclaiming Christ on busy city sidewalks, in marketplaces, in parks, on college campuses, and in neighborhoods. Anywhere that people move and gather, you will find our ‘pulpit.’

Read in our OACI UPDATE about the world-wide ministry of OAC.

We can't fulfill the Great Commission all by ourselves, so a key part of our ministry is training others, whether full-time Christian workers or laypeople. We offer several formal training each year, and also arrange training for churches or other groups at their request.

One of our core values is the key role of the local church in fulfilling the work of God in the world. We seek to enter into partnership with local churches that want help in "jump-starting" their evangelistic ministries.

Learning to share your faith in the public square is a tremendous faith-buildling experience. We offer short-term missions opportunties that emphasize active participation in evangelism. For many teens, college students, and adults, this is a life-changing trip. We also offer flexible internship opportunities for students and others.

We share the gospel with all who will hear it. There are key groups of people that we reach, however. One is children; this work is critical since the average American child today is not being reached by the church. Another key group consists of individuals who have come to America from counties that have little or no exposure to the gospel. Nearly all of the world's unreached people groups are represented in the cities and on the college campuses of America.
