History

OAC NorCal is a branch of OPEN AIR CAMPAIGNERS, USA is a 501c3 organization in the USA, but our history goes back almost 130 years to when OAC began.  In 1892, a lawyer named E. P. Field began preaching the Gospel in Sydney, Australia. He was concerned that the majority of Australians did not attend church. If someone did not take the Gospel to them, how would they ever hear? Today, OAC is an international and interdenominational mission that has been taking the good news of Jesus Christ to those outside the church since 1892.

Vision
