Please click on one of the states in which OAC India serves to get more information on their Evangelists:
India – home to over 1.2 billion people and millions of gods - is the largest democracy on earth. Approximately 80% are Hindu and 12% Muslim. While missionary visas for evangelism are virtually impossible to obtain, national believers have the religious freedom in most places to evangelize (in other places Christians are being persecuted).
OAC began in India in 1987 with our first Indian evangelist. Now five branches in five states are proclaiming the gospel to thousands of unreached people every month. All our evangelists are Indian, and have studied at Bible College. Their main ministry is going to villages to present the gospel through films and preaching the gospel. Usually our OAC branches have 3 evangelists, a jeep, film equipment and a generator.
People of all castes come to our film meetings and listen intently as our evangelists preach. The message of the cross knows no class distinction. Illustrated messages in black light are used to help the people understand and remember. Most have never heard that salvation is by grace through faith in Christ alone. Whenever possible outreaches are done in partnership with evangelical churches, and some of these have planted churches from the response. Hundreds are also doing in Bible Correspondence courses, and some of these students are coming to faith in Christ.
Our national evangelists need no visa, language school, cultural orientation, or costly budget, but only the prayers and modest support of God's people abroad. It takes only $200a month to support a married national evangelist. An evangelist may be supported through 5 sponsors at $40 a month, or through larger gifts.
In order to comply with government requirements to help the poor, we have four Sewing Schools for poor women. Tuition is provided free of charge, and the students are taught by our qualified Christian teachers. Devotions are held each day of class, and some of the students come to faith in Christ. A student may be sponsored for only $15 a month.
Would you prayerfully consider being a partner with an OAC evangelist in the harvest fields of India, or a sponsor of one or more poor young women in our Sewing Schools? Support may be sent to:
