Our theme for Ocoee Outreach in 2017 is "Dear to Us," based on 1 Thessalonians 2:8 and our Mission Statement. It is the Mission of Ocoee Outreach to share the love of Christ with others by restoring homes, renewing hope, and reaching hearts.
Our goal is to use the tools of home repair and outreach for children, seniors and families to introduce them to Jesus Christ!
Each mission team member will be equipped and encouraged to speak courageously for Christ and not to be timid or ashamed, devoting your life to what really counts, without fear! How God has blessed the past three summers:
- 4,200 volunteers
- 280 people came to Christ
- 225 home repair projects COMPLETED
- 90+ Block Parties
- Day Camps/VBS for children & seniors
- TLC Nursing Home Ministries
- Sports Clinic
- Farmers Market
- Canvassing/Survey Projects & more
The need is great in Cleveland, Tennessee and we need to be God’s hands in reaching others with His love. While here you will be challenged to restore homes, renew hope and reach hearts for Jesus Christ. Out of this theme will flow countless opportunities to spread the love and good news of Jesus Christ through service and witness. We have compiled this planning guide to help you as you prepare to come. Our prayer is that it will clarify matters and help you devote your attention to the more important things like prayer and simply being available for God to use as He sees fit.
We want you to be confident that when your group comes, you are coming as Christ’s ambassadors. Thank you for partnering with us this summer. We look forward to seeing you soon!
