Update 2019

Schools – reaching the next generation

Schools are one of OAC’s key ministries in a large number of countries across the world. Indeed, in several it is the ministry which occupies many workers most of the time.

They hear the stories of Jesus, the Old Testament (as in the video), and other stories which...
