OAC is an international and interdenominational mission which has been taking the good news of Jesus Christ to those outside the church since 1892.
Our approximately 200 evangelists, based in 26 countries, go wherever non-Christians can be reached effectively with the gospel. City-centre open-air meetings are an important part of the work in many countries, but we also work in schools, on beaches, in factories, on ships, in hospitals and retirement homes...
We have pioneered a number of visual techniques for presenting the gospel, most notably the sketchboard. Our evangelists also use ventriloquism and object lessons to keep the attention of audiences of all ages. Our manner and methods of presentation aim to attract and hold a crowd, allowing them the greatest possible opportunity to understand and respond.
Much of our work consists of training Christians to communicate their faith more effectively. We give regular courses at many Bible colleges around the world, as well as in hundreds of local churches, with whom we work closely.
There are many opportunities to support Open Air Campaigners: financially, through prayer or by joining one of our teams. We have vacancies for evangelists and administrators in many countries.
