entrust these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also."

Radio and Video broadcasts - Once per month for the last 4 years, God opened a door to proclaim truth on live radio as a guest on the Flight 1080 show with Dave Michaels on AM1080 KSCO radio, a secular news station in Santa Cruz. Listeners call in with questions and hear us answer with gentleness & respect as we proclaim & defend the Christian faith. in 2022, we also had our own Dwell On Truth show air on KSCO Sunday mornings. You can still enjoy our podcast and archived shows in most podcast players, and watch our videos at facebook and youtube.
Outreach Schedule and locations (we are making plans for 2023 now)
1. Coastal cities along the Monterey Bay, and the San Francisco Bay Area.

SUNDAYS in Northern California
Brenten serves local churches that partner with OAC in spreading the gospel.. We are uniting with like-minded believers who want to reach people of all ages with the good news of Jesus. If you'd like to team up with us, let's talk!
TUESDAY Night Men's Discipleship - Brenten leads Men's groups at Calvary Monterey to facilitate community and "following Jesus together". Growth groups are 6-month commitments for discipleship and spiritual growth through more intense Bible study, prayer and accountability. More info: www.calvary.com/growthgroups.
FRIDAYS (as the Lord provides) in the San Francisco Bay Area for the "101 Project"
Brenten's progress report: As of 2022, I've reached out at least twice to 7 of the 101 cities in 2 of the 9 counties. Thank you to friends who donated so I could reach:
Campbell (2 outreaches to downtown)
Gilroy (1 recon, 2 outreaches downtown)
Morgan Hill (1 recon, 1 outreach downtown)
Palo Alto (2 outreaches downtown)
San Francisco (1 recon, 1 outreach at Pier 39, 1 outreach at Pier 41)
San Jose (2 outreaches at Evergreen Farmers' Market and 1 at City Hall)
Cupertino (1 recon, outreach 6/25/2021)
We'd like to reach all 101 cities in all 9 counties that touch the San Francisco Bay.
How shall they hear unless preachers are sent with the gospel. So first we need to reach 100% funding and then pur strategy would be to find the best locations where we can effectively use the sketch board, my art portfolio, or Dan's flip chart, or just tracts to start conversations with people and if we gather a crowd, we'll preach in the open air. Would you like to partner with us by praying, giving, going and growing our territory? Please give at www.oacnorcal.org/give and contact us if you'd like to join us on the streets.

Registration is open
Call Brenten at (831)594-2633
Discipleship is an important part of DWELL On Truth, and Brenten is actively leading 2 men's discipleship groups. One is an in-person D-Group at Calvary Monterey on Tuesday nights, and the other is an international online Bible study usually Saturday mornings. Both groups are reading through the New Testament 1-3 chapters per week, and we discuss the chapters read using the inductive method of Bible study to observe, interpret and apply God's word. If you are interested in joining a group in 2021, please contact Brenten. More information about Discipleship groups at Calvary is at calvary.com/dgroups.
Lena and Brenten started attending Calvary Monterey in 1997 and have been mentored by pastors and leaders over the years. We volunteered in many ministries (Calvary Kids, college and career, home fellowships, missions fellowship, worship team and Life Groups) and were sent out as long-term missionaries to 4 different countries: Ukraine, Latvia, Hungary and now the USA!
As our church mission states, we want to see "Jesus Famous" so there may be more believers who KNOW, GROW and GO proclaiming Jesus to the world. That mission meshes well with what DWELL stands for (Disciple believers, Worship God, and Evangelize the world with Love for God and Love for people). Learn more at calvary.com/about/visionmission
"Follow me and I will teach you how to fish for people."
- Jesus (Mark 1:17)
We want to reach full funding for
full-time work with OAC NorCal with a mission to "present Christ by all means everywhere."
As of June 2022, we are 33% funded.
Our goal is to reach 100% funding by September 1, 2022, so that in the next 12 months we could present Christ to 100,000 people in 101 cities.
Every dollar you give goes to help Brenten and his team share the gospel at least 1 person, through gospel tracts, open air meetings, radio shows, podcasts and other events.

Currently, the Powers family is seeking to develop partnerships with friends who may be interested in praying, giving, sharing and connecting with Open Air Campaigners USA.
If you want to see more Northern Californian cities and people reached with the clear preaching of the gospel spread, you can make a difference by partnering with Brenten.
The Bible asks, "Do soldiers go to war at their own expense?... Those who preach the gospel should make their living by the gospel" Christians and churches who want to fulfill the great commission may make a difference by partnering with ministries and missionaries who actually preach the gospel. We resonate with the apostle Paul when he said "I am not ashamed of the Gospel... for is the Power of God for salvation to everyone who believes." You can be part of shining the light of the gospel into the darkness by sending your hard earned money to those who are doing the hard work of preaching the gospel on the front lines, downtown, in beaches, parks and festivals where there are large crowds. The fruit of our outreach abounds to your account and increases thanks and praise to God.
We would love to make disciples, and evangelize full time the Monterey and San Francisco Bay Areas, but we need partners who contribute toward the $7500 per month for our living and ministry expenses.
