WHAT IS ONE BIG VISION?
God is the visionary. We are the vehicle. We live, work and play in different parts of the city with different types of people. People are our mission. Jesus called us to build His church. In order to do that we must be as efficient and effective as possible with our resources. Download this magazine below which in detail, describes our response to God’s One Big Vision for One Church. It describes our plan over the next year to reach our city, our country and the world.
ONE BIG VISION DETAILS
LOCAL CHURCH GROWTH
Through OBV we are committed to funding the growth of the church locally through expanding the impact of our church and ministering to the hurting in our own backyards. We do not do this for comfort, fancy buildings, or praise, but for the purpose of making a space for those not yet here to personally know a loving, Heavenly Father.
LOCAL & GLOBAL MISSIONs
Through OBV, we support key missions projects such in Guatemala, Nicaragua, Zambia and in countries all over the world through our missionary partners and organizations to spread the gospel around the world.
FUTURE CHRISTIAN LEADERS
We are setting something into motion that the next generation will lead. We want to invest in future Christian leaders now so they’ll be ready when their time comes. One Big Vision will build future through Gahanna Christian Academy, student leadership development, college internships, mission trip funding and the Global Leadership Summit
