“My summer with Open Air Campaigners was one that I will never forget! To see how the Gospel changes lives of people is truly an awesome experience.
Open air was a challenging ministry that required me to step out of my comfort zone in my Christian life. When I was really nervous, I had to rely totally on God to be able to preach and witness effectively. I came to realize that it was at those times when I relied totally on God, that He used me the most. Open air is a ministry that taught me how to rely on God in everything I do. I learned things that summer in Los Angeles that I have been able to apply to all aspects of my Christian life.
My summer of service was one that challenged me spiritually and caused me to grow in my relationship with Christ. I encourage you to take a summer and get involved in a summer of service with Open Air Campaigners."

preciousness of the truth of His Word became more real for me as it was
