Ongoing Ambassadors For Christ
During Spring Break, college age ambassasdors go on the road making stops at selected LCMS congregations in a certain geographical area of the continental U.S. This team trains youth and adults in witnessing techniques and shares the Good News of Jesus' suffering, death and resurrection door to door in the communities of those hosting churches.
About Ongoing Ambassadors For Christ
" For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved." John 3:16,17 NKJV
Annually OAFC holds a week long Summer Training event somewhere in our national area usually in the month of July. Commissioned Ambassadors work with their teams during the week as they bond, renew friendships, study God's Word, listen to guest speakers, attend workshops, learn to hone their witnessing methods, learn guitar, all while being hosted by an area local congregation which they serve and witness for.
Each year OAFC hosts a regional New Years gatherings which normally run from Dec. 29th through New Years day. Ambassadors are assigned to teams, study God's Word, share their faith in Jesus in the community for local congregations, enjoy friendships and celebrate with other Lutherans as the old year passes away and the New Year is embraced as they look forward to witnessing of Jesus love and forgiveness in the year ahead.
Summer Training Travel Team
Following Summer Training each year, Travel Team members go on the road making stops at LCMS congregations in an assigned area, training them in witnessing techniques and informing them about Jesus' love and forgiveness and the benefits of the OAFC ministry. Travel teams make one night stops during the week with a regular weekend scheduled for the weekend.
"A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone who is perfectly trained will be like his teacher." Luke 6:40 NKJV
Ongoing Ambassadors For Christ was founded in 1970 by Rev. Fred Darkow and has been active in evangelism ministry since that time.
OAFC is a national ministry with active leadership groups in:
Arizona, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, Texas.
OAFC has developed some simple witnessing tools in which they are able to train and assist youth, members of the congregation, pastors and evangelism members to boldly sharing their faith in Jesus with others. We provide the leaders. This volunteer ministry seeks to be used of God in serving churches of the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod. There is no charge for this service training.
Congregations may invite us by hosting an ongoing ambassadors for Christ group for an Outreach Weekend. We have provided a link to invite us on the home page.
