OEC’s Men’s ministries encourage and equip all men to know God from His word, to encourage blokes to live for Jesus in every area of their lives, to spur one another on to love and good works, while holding each other accountable and encouraging one another in all of the struggles of our daily lives.
The key event for our Men’s ministry is our annual OEC Men’s weekend away which is held one weekend in June at Ridgecrest — about an hour from Orange. Our men gather together to be taught from God’s word, to grow together as mates, and to look out for each other in our walk of faith at a campsite that has great food, fantastic views and sets up a relaxed and casual weekend. Other events happen throughout the year as we encourage men to know, love and live for our great God.
About 3-4 times a year we gather all of our blokes together, often around a barbie or a bonfire, to hear someone speak from the bible to men about how to live out our faith in the cut and thrust of everyday life. These events are aimed at dealing with issues that our tradies face in living out their Christian lives in a challenging workplace, although that means we will be dealing with topics relevant to all men. So, every bloke is welcome.[/swm_three_fourth]
