Mission resource stand


mission resource stand

OSCAR has put together a resource stand with the aim of providing information for those interested or involved in mission. Different versions of this stand have appeared at various events and conferences over the last 13 years (including New Wine, BigChurchDayOut, Soul Survivor, Momentum and One Event). It has proved very popular with delegates.

The stand is designed to be part of any event or conference of any organisation or church and provide valuable advice to attendees, whether they are staff, field personnel or individual supporters of the organisation or mission in general.

Where we provide the stand, it comes with expert advisors, Internet linked computers and an extensive range of resource sheets. At larger events we can also coordinate a jobs/opportunities board. Our series of 24 resource sheets is aimed at providing help on various practical aspects of mission. The topics of these sheets are as follows:

  Exploring mission

  1. Practical Guide to Short-term Mission
  2. Mission Organisations (plus 2a. Anti-Trafficking Orgs)
  3. Mission Vacancies

If you want to provide these sheets on your own display, you may print them yourself (click on each title above to download each sheet in pdf format). Bear in mind that the sheets will be updated at least once every year, so you may need to renew your copies periodically.

We are willing to come and provide the whole display stand for your event at no cost to you*. If you would like an introductory letter about the stand to circulate around your committee or decision making body, download introletter.pdf

Our whole aim in providing this service is to better resource and equip those who are involved or interested in mission and we are keen to partner with others to achieve this. Please get in touch with us if you are interested in taking us up on this offer.

(* a contribution towards travel costs is always appreciated)
