Letter from Our Board President
I have found that in ministry when God is leading to begin something new this often starts small and feels rather insignificant. This was the case in 2002 at the early stages of OCCCDA. I remember asking myself “Is the investment from OCMC to dream, pray, discern, plan and patiently wait on the Lord, really worth it?” This was a legitimate question because at the time “these small beginnings” were barely making an impact in our congregation or addressing challenges facing the Oxford Circle community. Rather surprisingly scripture tells us that it is exactly at the point of small beginnings that the Lord is rejoicing to see the work of the Kingdom of Heaven entering into the earth – in Oxford Circle!
