The year has, once more, been an encouraging one evangelistically. I think that this has been our greatest single area of consistency, which is encouraging, given that we are first and foremost an evangelistic organisation. It is very pleasing to see such hunger and fruit in difficult times.
The fact that the Trust currently has 22 full and part-time staff indicates how things have grown and developed, since the last time I wrote.
The front-line team currently consists of Amy Orr-Ewing, John Lennox, Alister McGrath, Michael Green, Vlad Criznic and myself. To this must now be added our Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics (OCCA) tutors, Vince Vitale, Sharon Dirckx and Tom Price, as well as our enlarging group of Associates.
The office team has thankfully also been given some much needed strength. This is in order to cope with the teaching and marking requirements for the OCCA, which now has its largest ever cohort of students. Secondly, there is the need to make sure that our admissions team and administrative team can cope with the inevitable pressure of growing enquiries given the accreditation of the OCCA programme.
The challenges ahead are both exciting and numerous, but, by the end of this year, the entire organisation will hopefully be in a great position to impact more places than ever before for the Gospel.
Thank you again for all of your prayers and support.
