‘Holding fast the faithful word...’
‘Holding forth the word of life...’
OAM exhibitions are run in conjunction with local churches. They are used extensively
throughout the year and are seen by thousands of children each year. Basically,
each exhibition consists of about twenty large exhibition boards, containing large
colour pictures. The children are guided round the boards with a narrator. At various
intervals they meet a character, dressed in costume, to tell their story first hand.
Appropriate props are provided. Afterwards, clip boards and pencils are distributed
and the children complete a worksheet.
We have found these to be a useful tool in evangelism in the past, presenting the gospel in a clear way. Usually, an exhibition would be hosted by a local church, and school groups invited in. However, some fellowships can not accommodate, and so have obtained permission to take the exhibition into the schools.
If you are interested in booking an exhibition, or would like further information, then please do not hesitate in contacting the office for more details.
The Amazing Journey
The exhibition comprises 18 display boards on which are pictures and text giving
an overview of the Bible, from Genesis, right through the Old Testament, to the Ascension
of the Lord Jesus Christ, in the New Testament book of The Acts. The stories are
brought to life by people dressed up as various bible characters, and linked together
by a narrator.
The themes that are covered include creation, the fall, the flood, the tower of Babel, Israel’s journey from slavery to the promised land, the Judges, the Kings, the Prophets, and the birth, death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus. Exciting stories of Noah and the Ark, David & Goliath, Daniel in the lion’s den, and, of course, the wonderful message of who Jesus is, and why He came into our world.
Those that run the exhibition get to choose about 6 characters to dress up as, from a wide range which includes, Noah, Abraham, Sarah, Miriam, Moses, David, Daniel, Elijah, Mary the Mother of Jesus, John the Baptist and Mary Magdelene. Having seen the exhibition, the children then get to answer questions on a simple worksheet, by looking at the boards. This helps to reinforce what they have heard. It’s a most Amazing Journey!
‘The Amazing Journey’ is one of four OAM exhibitions.
