60 Years in the USA, big goals for the coming decade!
Open Air Campaigners USA is an evangelistic ministry of preaching the Gospel to lost people and mobilizing the body of Christ to do the same, primarily through effective open-air outreach. We are trusting the Lord to use this ministry to impact 25 cities in America with the gospel through open-air evangelism and other ministry by means of strategic establishment of branch ministries by the year 2025.
While the roots of our mission go back to 1892 in Australia where, in God’s timing, this ministry began, in the 1950’s, a servant of God by the name of Jim Duffecy and a team of evangelists were exploring the possibility of bringing the work of OAC to North America. In 1956, the Director of Slavic Gospel Association in Chicago arranged for the team to stay at their headquarters building. On September 27th, 1956 on the corner of Quincy and State Street in downtown Chicago, the very first OAC open-air meeting took place. We incorporated in 1958 and so we rejoice in God’s preservation of this work here in America through the years.
Today, America remains a viable mission field. Although much of the population claim church membership, only a small percentage are evangelical. Multitudes of totally unevangelized people groups exist within the USA including cultists, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, and Sikhs. Others who also need to be reached with the salvation message include Native Americans and émigrés in varying numbers from every nation in the world! In fact, not only is America a viable mission field, but it is a growing mission field as well. Peoples from most of the mission fields of the world are coming to North America and remain nearly as unevangelized here as they were in their native country.
