Intercessor Prayer Support

The Vision of Oakseed Ministries is to seek out and serve indigenous ministries that bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to the very poor and destitute of the great cities of the world. Strategic to this Oakseed calling is the ongoing spiritual support of the leaders of these ministries. A consistent theme expressed by every Partner is:

Knowing there are men, women, and children around the world – particularly in the USA – interceding for us in prayer is infinitely powerful. It sustains our strength in the face of trials and great challenges. Without these prayers we believe we would not be able to accomplish all we are called to accomplish.

For this reason Oakseed launched the Intercessor Support Network for ministry leaders. Being an Intercessory Prayer Warrior is a critical role in the Kingdom, and our ministry leaders have no doubt that intercession is vitally important, effective, and utterly necessary for their work and lives in the Kingdom. Intercessors receive personal biographies, ministry descriptions, and prayer requests for our Partners around the world. They commit to pray every day for one year interceding for seven ministry leaders (one a day) who bring the Gospel in word and deed to the urban poor. If you would like more information or are interested in praying faithfully for our Partners, please email elizabeth@oakseed.org for more information.

Essay Contest

Every year, Oakseed holds an international youth essay contest that focuses on various issues that plague the poor around the world. In 2013 the contest theme was “Compassion and Breaking the Cycle of Poverty.” The contest is open to youth around the world and aims to encourage young adults to explore global issues and to think critically and creatively about solutions. Through this essay contest we hope to raise awareness among the youth of this world and empower them to effectively consider ways their generation can impact God’s Kingdom. We invite youth to explore different subtopics and submit personal responses with a biblical understanding of topics like poverty. We receive hundreds of essays every year, and we are always looking for more volunteers to evaluate essays. If you are interested in judging essays in the spring, please contact elizabeth@oakseed.org. To stay updated with contest news, follow us on Twitter, @essaycontest.

Bazaar Catalog

Each year Oakseed publishes a Bazaar catalog with unique gift opportunities for 19 organizations run by nationals in 12 different countries.  The Bazaar catalog helps meet the material needs of our Partners. We provide a way to give meaningful gifts to your loved ones that make an impact around the world. Browse through the catalog and choose special gifts for any occasion. The Oakseed Bazaar Catalog is great for Christmas, birthdays, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Valentine’s Day, and more!

Monthly Prayer Guides

Every month we publish a Prayer Guide that details specific prayer requests from our Partners. We believe that prayer is one of the most powerful ways we can support our Partners and impact God’s Kingdom. If you would like to be added to our mailing list, fill out a contact form or email your contact information to  elizabeth@oakseed.org. You can also read our Prayer Guides online here.

Annual Day of Prayer

We believe the prayers of God’s people are a powerful tool that God has given to us to extend His blessing and favor on the world. On the first Sunday of every June, Oakseed hosts an Annual Day of Prayer for children at high risk. We gather locally and internationally to focus on a global issue and pray on behalf of billions around the world who face poverty, oppression, child trafficking, hunger, and more. If you are interested in joining us in prayer, or would like to host your own Annual Day of Prayer, please email elizabeth@oakseed.org for more information.

Volunteer

Oakseed Ministries has several volunteer opportunities throughout the year, including monthly mailings, essay contest judging, and our annual banquet. If you have a great skill at stuffing envelopes, eating muffins, and enjoy working with others, you might be the perfect volunteer. For more information about volunteer opportunities, please email Elizabeth Kraemer at elizabeth@oakseed.org. We would love to have you!
