Oilfield Workers Sharing Christ Around the World

"Our fellowship is with our Father and His Son Jesus Christ" 1 John 1:3
Grow Your Relationship
With God

The Oilfield Christian Fellowship Bible Ministry is a multi-faceted outreach ministry dedicated to get the Word of God to men and women of the Oil Patch.

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” John 3:16

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters.

We have partnered with Faith by Hearing, an organization committed to reaching the nations with the Word of God in audio.

11th Annual IADC Houston Oilfield Charity Shoot

This year the venue for the shoot will be held at Westside Sporting Grounds Friday, February 26, 2021. This year event will support the IADC Houston Chapter Scholarship Program, and the Oilfield Christian Fellowship (OCF), and Home Run Hitters.

The Oilfield Christian Fellowship began in May 1991 as an outlet for Christians in the oilfield to meet each other. The OCF has evolved into many more forms of outreach, including a Bible ministry, Prayer Breakfasts, a Bible APP and Bible Studies.  Oil workers have carried over 400,000 Bibles in 52 languages to 69 countries around the world. Of those, over 350,000 are custom Oil Patch Bibles written in English, Spanish, Chinese and Portuguese.

I hope you will join our efforts again, as we expect this year’s event to build on our past success.

This year each Sponsor team will be eligible to win one pistol per team (two pistols per team for Platinum sponsors) as door prizes and we will be giving either a gun or gift card for non-sponsor teams.

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!!!  CLICK HERE

The next Houston OCF luncheon is February 3, 2021.  Hope to see you there.

OCF Friends,

After prayerful consideration and following the recommendation of state and local officials as it pertains to Covid-19 virus, we will be canceling the June meeting for Oilfield Christian Fellowship.  We are hopeful we will get to meet the third Thursday of June and will send updates regarding that meeting in due time.

The body of Christ, as expressed at OCF Permian, is not the building, but the saints who make up the group.  Although OCF programming is on hiatus, the OCF body is at full capacity to serve, love, pray for, and bless each other and our neighbors. Our purpose in all we do is love for God and love for others, not fear. Our hope remains in the God who heals and truly is in control.  Let’s remember to always trust God and rely on Him to remove any fears we might be experiencing.

For His Glory,

OCF Board
