Thank you for visiting the website of Open Air Campaigners - Overseas Ministry. Open Air Campaigners is an interdenominational ministry of evangelism committed to proclaiming the gospel to the unreached through open air and other outreaches in partnership with the church. Almost all of our evangelists in the Overseas Ministries are nationals (with the exception of one). They need no language school, cultural orientation, visa, or high salary. Having attended Bible School, and been trained by OAC-OM, they are ready and equipped to reach their own countrymen for Christ.
Just as Christ went to the people where they were, our evangelists are proclaiming the gospel to unreached people in places like remote villages of North India, nomadic tribes of Northern Kenya, Indian tribes of the Amazon, city plazas of Ecuador, beach resorts of Russia, and so on.
People of all ages are attending their meetings in the open air and school assemblies. Through illustrated messages, Christian films and dramas, Christ is being clearly presented as the only Savior of the world. Many are responding to Him.
The ministry of OAC began in Australia in 1892, and is now international. In 1990, the Overseas Ministries branch of OAC was established to open branches in developing countries. Today our national evangelists are ministering in the harvest fields of India, Kenya, Russia, Ukraine, Jamaica, Mexico, Ecuador, Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina. Every day on an average at least 1000 people are being reached with the gospel.
Our evangelists lead churches out into the harvest fields around them, and the churches are responsible for follow-up. Sometimes new churches are planted. In India, where we are required to help the poor, OAC has 4 Sewing Schools for poor women. Every year some of these graduates trust in Christ as Savior.
OAC-OM is a faith ministry with all staff trusting God to supply their personal and ministry needs through His people. Until churches in developing countries are able to provide this support, our national evangelists must be supported by Christians abroad. As they work on the frontline of evangelism, you can be part of their ministry with your prayers and gifts (see “Donations” above).
Again, thank you for visiting our website. Please take the time to watch our video that tells the story of OAC-OM. May God bless you.
Compelled by His love,
OAC – Overseas Ministries Director
