BRAZIL has a population of over 200 million. While about 64% are Catholics, this number is diminishing as Evangelicals have grown to over 22%. Unfortunately, false doctrines, like the prosperity gospel, have caused disillusionment. There is a great need for evangelism, where the pure gospel is proclaimed. Freedom of religion and separation of Church and State exists.
Today, OAC Brazil works primarily through the following four ministries:
Ministry – in Schools and the Open Air
Today, public elementary, middle and high schools are the biggest field for OAC Ministry. We reach thousands of students and hundreds of teachers with the Gospel every year. In a similarly way, we also conduct open air campaigns in several places and situations, preserving the strong tradition that our Ministry has held since it was established.
This focuses on national and international short-term mission trips. Our objective is to witness for Christ, serve, encourage and strengthen local ministries, in which the visiting team and local missionaries can receive a new vision for missions. We also provide resources to carry out the local ministry, and aim to find support partners. We have witnessed amazing testimonies from people that took part on such trips, as they got more involved.
Part of our job is to promote training sessions, in order to strategically share tools for the spreading of the gospel through frontline evangelism. We share the methodology used in our work at Bible Colleges, missionary agencies and local churches.
This ministry is made up of volunteers that help us in spreading and developing OAC’s work in several areas. We call these precious volunteers Ambassadors. An OAC Ambassadors is a facilitator who desires to regularly support us through their skills, professions, prayers and gifts.
