After not meeting face-to-face in four years, representatives from OC Global Alliance’s 15 mobilization centers (MC) met for a week-long conference in Spain. It was a time of sharing highs and lows of the pandemic years, celebrating the new ways the Lord is at work, and giving each other opportunities for collaboration.
Collaboration was the buzzword at the event. Each MC looked for areas where they could serve others as well as areas where they could use help. One key business item was affirming Craig, from Outreach Canada, as the new Director for Collaboration. The hope of this position is to facilitate communication and collaboration so the OC GA can flourish in ministry together.
Affirmation of Partnership
At each OC GA gathering, representatives sign an affirmation of being in partnership with one another. As each person signed, there was a sense of a new era in the OC GA—one of a deeper, meaningful relationship.
As Jorge, a mission worker sent from Sepal Brazil, said at the gathering, for him, the OC GA reflects heaven, people from different nations and tongues coming together to worship and serve the Lord.
Pray with One Challenge
- Pray for Craig as he assumes this new role of Director for Collaboration for the OC GA.
- Pray for the new OC GA moderator, Paolo, as he steps into a leadership role on the Guidance Team.
- Pray for open doors of collaboration among the OC GA members.
- Pray this body of mission workers would reflect the love and unity of Jesus Christ to the world.
