OAC Bay Area – Ministry and Outreach Update 2/13/18

Hello all!  Thanks for following our ministry updates.  January was a good month, and February has been going well too.  I’ve listed a few praises and prayer requests below, along with upcoming outreaches and some pictures.  I hope you will be encouraged and reminded to pray for us.  We need it!

Advisory Board – I have been thinking about, and will be praying about, forming an advisory board for our local ministry.  Many of my fellow missionaries have such a board, a small group of mature believers, to bounce ideas off of, to help keep them accountable, to get out the word about the ministry, and to help them raise support.  I have some people I am considering asking about this, but if you would like to be considered, please let me know.

What Abouts – The What Abouts page on my blog has a list of commonly asked questions regarding the Christian Faith, along with links to good articles, sermons and videos addressing them.  I’m starting to work (slowly) on more updates and would like to hear what YOUR questions are (either those you have asked, or those you have been asked).  I just added some resources on “How Can You Trust the Bible if It Was Written By Men” under the BIBLE section.  I’d also love feedback on the rest of what is already posted.  You can visit the site HERE.  I hope to hear from you, and feel free to share the link on social media.

Upcoming Training – I’m preparing for evangelism training at a couple local churches (including mine), and am putting together a new set of training notes, with a little shift in emphasis.  I will also be spending more time on transitioning from natural to spiritual conversation in every day life (something that is a challenge for me too).  I would appreciate prayer that God will guide me in this.

Prep for Summer Ministry and VBS – I’m trying to get a jump on this for 2018.  If you are planning a VBS for your church and would like something different to supplement the teaching portion, please let me know.  I’m also hoping for some on-the-street kids 5-day clubs in the area.  If you or your church are interested in participating, let me know.

Kids Ministry – We’ve had some successful kids ministry recently, but I’d really like some long-term, ongoing kids clubs, and those doors haven’t happened yet.  Please continue to pray for this.

University Ministry – University ministry has been very good at San Jose State, Stanford, and UC Berkeley, but all three universities have rules restricting signs and tables, so I am not able to bring my sketch board and literature onto campus.  I’ve made contact with several Christian campus clubs, and am praying God uses those contacts to help that happen.  Please pray.

Thanks for taking the time to read this.  Please keep us in prayer and pass this along to others who might be interested.  God bless!

All for His glory,
