Features for January ...

To Fill the Earth with Faith

To kick off the New Year we have a great article to give us a snapshot of church planting around the world. 'To Fill the Earth with Faith' is the title of a strategic document compiled by the Global Church Planting Network which extracts information from Operation World and details the church planting status for every country. Chris Maynard, one of the main researchers, tells us why this is important for us to know, particularly for those of us in the UK.

What Missionaries Ought to Know

Ron and Bonnie Koteskey have written numerous articles and guides for mission workers during their many years of ministry. The amazing thing is that they make most of these available for free. Their basic core publication 'What Missionaries Ought to Know' contains sixty chapters of essential reading material for anyone embarking on mission work of any length. It's free to download too!

New Year, New Career

Whether you're looking for your first opportunity in mission work, or looking to change careers within the Christian jobs market, OSCAR is your complete job search website. We not only host opportunities from more Christian organisations than any other website in the UK, we also link to all the other Christian recruitment websites. That makes OSCAR the best starting place for finding your next opportunity. You can also subscribe to our weekly email of all the latest job listings, called the 'Opportunities Update'

Holidays 2017

Now is a good time to plan your holidays, breaks and retreat time. This will stop them getting squeezed out by other priorities as the year progresses. We have lots of good suggestions for holidays geared for mission and Christian workers, in the UK and around the world, plus retreats for adults and holidays for children. Also, check out the new StayMarta website ... like Airbnb but Christian. They are also looking for hosts from all around the world.


Did you know that around 430 Christian organisations and churches now manage their own information on the OSCAR website? Each has an account to both update their organisational details and add vacancies/opportunities. We also have a large number of organisations adding their events to our events list, making it the UK's most dynamic source of 'what's on' mission-wise. You too could be a part of all this! Contact us for more info.
