Our 2017 Advent Offering

Last year was our first experience of having an Advent Offering which replaced our February Sacrifice Offering. What a thrill it was to receive nearly $67,000! This offering helps in providing disaster relief when such events occur on our mission fields. It also assists in the operational costs. This past year funds from this account enabled us to send finances to Yemen for the Humanitarian Relief and just recently, to our churches in the Caribbean region due to the damage from the hurricane.

Our theme for the offering this year is The Way in a Manger. Truly, He is the way and the truth and the life… John 14:6. Let’s not hold back in sharing The Way with friends, neighbors and those around the world. You may not feel called to another country to share The Way, but we can all lighten the load of those who have responded to the call God has given them. Let’s work at making this offering the best yet! The goal this year is to raise $75,000.

Your gift will make a difference today!
 
  

OCU Presents "Practical Leadership" with Rev. Mike Holbrook

Ohio Christian University is proud to present Practical Leadership, with Rev. Mike Holbrook.  Practical Leadership is a four (4) hour continuing education seminar for pastors and students on November 2nd, 2012.

Rev. Holbrook will share insights on God's calling for pastors to lead their congregations and will give a practical look at how that manifests itself in the local church.  Once we establish that God has called us to lead, the next step is to find the heart of Jesus for our people. Mike will help us understand how to both discover and cultivate this heart.  Finally, on the application level, he will discuss how a pastor can develop the requisite people skills needed to effectively lead a congregation.

Admission to the event is free and CCCU ministers who participate will earn one (1) Continuing Education Unit.  The seminar will be held in Room 219 of the Maxwell Library, beginning at 8:30 a.m.  Pre-registration is not required.  For more info, contact Ohio Christian University at 1-877-762-8669.
