Ocean City Ministry with Youth group

Last Tuesday I went down to Ocean City with Tom Fox, one of my partners in the Washington/Baltimore branch of OAC. We meet Paul Adams the branch director down at Ocean City where he had a team of youth from Forcey Memorial Church. This team is in the process of a 6 week local missions trip and last week they were at Ocean City.
I was excited about going down to Ocean City to help with the training of the youth althought Tom and I were only going to be there for 24hrs. We arrived at the house were they were staying at around 1:30 and then I was told I would be teaching Ryan, a youth on the team, the message he was going to be preaching and how to paint the pre-sketch. We spend the remainder of the afternoon working on the painting and also on reviewing the message. Then after devotionals and dinner we went out to the boardwalk to preach the Gospel. Each of the 4 young men preached a message as well, as Paul, Greg, and myself. It was incredible to see the 4 youths preach the Gospel on the boardwalk. It truly showed that the power of the Gospel proclaimed
is effective unto salvation. We are just vessels that God uses and it was great to be used to help instruct and then watch to Gospel being preached and knowing that God allowed me to be a tool in this process. During the night of preaching many people were preached to and many one to one converstations occurred. It was a great night of ministry. Then the following day Tom and I were able to go to the beach and spend some time in prayer and Bible reading which was very refreshing. Having a few hours of solitude by the ocean and reading God's word was a real blessing. Then around 1:00 we headed back home to the D.C. area. I pray that as you have read this experience you are able to see how important this work of spreading the Gospel is and I pray this blog will inspire you to personally share your faith more or if you are involved with a group that would like to have an opportunity to share go on a short term mission trip just visit our website at and contact one of our evangelist and we will try to arrange for you or your group. God bless each of you and good night.

We are now in Maryland

Hello all,

Well, we are offically moved into our new home in Silver Spring, MD and I am so glad that I can now begin working with OAC on a full-time basis. Since we have been here I have already been involved in two outreaches. One was to the city docks in Annapolis and the other was to the Washington mall on the 4th of July. Both of these opportunities to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ we wonderful and many seeds were planted. Now tomorrow I am going to Ocean City, MD to help with a youth group from Paul Adams' home church. I am looking forward to going back to do more ministry at Ocean City because it is such a great place to share the Gospel with a wide range of cultures and ethnic groups. My new newsletter will be posted soon at the OAC website so if you do not recieve it in the mail you can see what else I have been doing over the last few months by going to then go to my page and it should be there by next week. Well, I have to pack for tomorrow and then get to sleep so I will keep you all updated of things to come and ministry events. Praise God we are here and well.
