Ministry emphasis

(taken from 1997 documents (in folder 69-7) apparently used as the text for a mission display; this mission statement was probably officially developed and approved by the mission’s executives and board)


“The mission of OC International is to assist the Body of Christ to make disciples of all peoples.”


Four values:

Focusing on Entire Nations. We believe that whole nations can and should be reached for Christ with the gospel. Our intention is to be involved in effective efforts where the goal is the evangelization of the entire nation.

 

Working Through the Entire Body of Christ. We seek to accomplish this nationwide by working with the entire church. We believe that the church is God’s instrument for His purpose of world evangelization, and that God has given the church gifted men and women to equip believers for the fulfillment of that purpose.

 

Multiplying the Church. We believe that the most effective means of making disciples is the establishment of witnessing evangelical congregations within physical and cultural proximity of every person in every nation.

 

Ministering in Teams. We are committed to the Biblical model of ministry teams. In ministry, team effort can benefit from a synergistic affect; the total effort of the team working together is greater than the sum of all the individual efforts working independently.


A revised version of these values appears at the mission’s Web site.

Other significant information

 

OC's emphasis on training national Christians as a means to evangelize a country developed into a central characteristic of OC and was embodied in the organizational motto: "Every heart without Christ, a mission field; and every heart with Christ, a missionary." A basic principle of the mission's philosophy was that "the best way to evangelize any country is to edify and stimulate and mobilize the church." A corollary of this approach was that ministries of OC were church-related, and that it did not start its own churches, but rather worked with existing churches. As a result of these emphases, OC entered a new country at the invitation of national churches, rather than on its own initiative and did not feel compelled to maintain its work in a country when that work could be handed over to another church or mission. Examples of this were the mission's withdrawals from Okinawa, Argentina, and Australia.


Examples of OC’s emphasis on team ministry (as stated in Ministry Emphasis section above) span the mission’s history. An early example of this was the evangelistic basketball teams of "Venture for Victory," which later became Sports Ambassadors. The Luis Palau Evangelistic Team developed as an outreach to the Spanish-speaking world, and Christ the Only Way Movement was a team program which OC introduced in the Philippines. OC also structured its regional fields on the team format; these were thus referred to as the Brazil Team, Colombia Team, etc. Other examples of team ministry were the Singing Ambassadors, Youth Ambassadors, Medical Ambassadors, and Overseas Ambassadors.


During the 1960s and ‘70s, the mission emphasized the church growth principles and practices in its philosophy and strategic planning.

Discouraged by the fall of China to the communists and what was perceived as the impending fall of Taiwan, Hillis intended to return to the United States to teach missions and church history at a Christian college. However, while attending a YFC summer conference at Winona Lake in 1950, he committed himself to respond to Madam Chiang Kai-Shek's request for men to preach to the Nationalist armies in Taiwan. Hillis went to Taiwan as part of the first YFC short-term team with Uri Chandler and Ellsworth "Ells" Culver and was also part of the first permanent team to go to Taiwan in 1951 in response to requests by Taiwanese churches that the teams stay to help with training programs for lay people and church personnel.

Steel in his Soul: The Dick Hillis Story written by Jan Windebrenner



[NOTE: In the Scope & Content section, the notation "folder 2-5" means box 2, folder 5.]

Scope and Content


The documents in this collection include correspondence, financial reports, annual reports, field reports, minutes of meetings, project proposals, manuscripts, organizational charts, biographical data, handbooks, a syllabus and study guide, directories, promotional material, news and prayer letters, press clippings, news releases, photographs and a photo album, audio and video tapes, and papers of founder Dick Hillis, all related to the mission's work since its beginning in 1950 and official founding in 1951. Documents describe the founding and expansion of the mission, the administrations of Dick Hillis, the mission’s first president from 1951-1976 (includes files dating back to 1933 on his years as a missionary in China with China Inland Mission) and subsequent presidents Luis Palau, Clyde Cook and Larry Keyes, financial oversight and development of the mission, its production of communication tools such as its publications and prayer letters, the activities of its various other divisions, and it’s philosophical and strategic emphasis on church growth (most evident if not explicit in the documents dating between the 1960s and early-1980s, but especially in the files of the Director of Research and Strategy).


OC’s commitment to serving national churches and empowering national leaders, evangelists and missionaries (beginning under Hillis’s leadership), was expressed in its collaboration with national churches in the developing world, and its inclusion of missionaries in its own staff from those countries (including Argentina, Brazil, Liberia, Philippines, and Taiwan). Although more evident in programs and activities than explicit in policy statements, several examples of this emphasis include an appeal for internationalizing the mission (folder 67-13), a proposed policy on the relationship of national Christians to the mission (folder 2-86), and photographs of or including national workers and leaders; for other examples also search on the term “national” in this guide. Political or historical events will be found as background to the documents in the collection, including the Cold War and anti-communism (see the Hillis series, especially his own transition from work as a missionary in China to Taiwan), or the Vietnam War (see the prayer letters and photographs of missionaries who worked in Vietnam, such as Glenn Johnson, John Newman) or folder 49-1. Also implicit in the collection through the mission’s philosophy and programs was its reflection of Evangelical theology and ethos, but explicit examples can be found such as lectures during the mission’s Mt. Hermon conferences (see audio tapes T20 to T45), articles written by Hillis (see boxes 45, 46, 47, 48, and 49), or manuscripts such as those in folder 1-31 or folder 6-6. There is some documentation on themes relevant to missions, including the role of women (folders 55-16 and 70-10), and positions on Pentecostalism and the ecumenical movement (folder 1-13).


These documents have been arranged according to the office from which they originated:

 

1.  Board of Directors

2.  Presidents:

     a.   Dick Hillis (1951-1976)

     b.   Luis Palau (1976-1978)

     c.   Clyde Cook (1978-1982); also some files of Paul Yaggy as interim

     d.   Larry Keyes (1983- 2001)

     e.   Greg Gripentrog (2002- ) no files

3.  Executive Vice President (Hans Wilhelm)

4.  Director of Research and Strategy (Jim Montgomery)

5.  Executive Director of Financial Ministries

6.  Development Department

     a.   Administrative

     b.   Publications

     c.   Prayer letters

     d.   Photographs (see Location Record)

7.  Audio tapes (see Location Record)


The arrangement of the records has remained as it was received. Folder titles were retained as received, unless there was no title, in which case the archivist supplied the title. In the collection as originally arranged, there was a small Miscellaneous subseries which was part of the Presidents series; there was no distinguishable order evident in these records as received. With the substantial expansion of the collection, these files have been integrated into the appropriate series of the corresponding president.


Some materials have been removed from their original order because of their size. In cases where such a document has been removed from a folder, a note to this effect has been placed where the document would have appeared and also indicates where the document(s) may be found. In addition, thermofax copies of documents in the collection were replaced with acid-free photocopies due to their deteriorating quality. Duplicates have also been removed from the collection with the permission of OC International and returned to donor.

Interspersed are files with material on missionary and musician Russell Killman (folder 41-2), Hillis’s interview transcripts about the early history of the mission or notes for other publications or projects (folders 41-3 and 41-6), or notes on that history by others (folder 41-5).


Hillis also maintained a consolidated set of miscellaneous and personal files, including family correspondence, his early prayer letters while a missionary in China (folder 43-5) and those spanning 1950-1985 (folders 44-1 to 44-4), medical and travel information including passports with early photos (folder 43-9), his will, some financial and investment information, documentation on the Hillis’s homes, etc. Folder 42-1 titled “Dad” relates to Hillis’s father in his later life and at the time of his death, while folders 42-5,6 is of correspondence from Hillis to his own children and folder 42-7 to members of Hillis’s extended family. }”Political “ in folder 42-10 consists of letters to an from offices of various government offices about Hillis’s letters on a variety of domestic and international issues. Also among Hillis’s miscellaneous files were two sets of prayer letters for OC missionaries Don & Shirley Fults (folder 44-5) and Ed Murphy (folder 44-6); these may overlap the prayer letters in boxes 5 to 26, but for these two families they bring all the letters together. Folder 1-39 contains several organizational charts from the 1970s. Two sets of biographical data sheets from the 1960s and 1976-1982 can be found in folders 1-10 and 1-11. Folder 1-13 contains an official Statement of Faith and responses to questions about OC's stand on Pentecostalism and the ecumenical movement. The 1974-version of the Administrative Services Handbook is found in folder 1-24.

Materials generated by the Finance Committee can be found in folders 1-23 and 1-26. A manuscript of interest among these files is "Goals and Objectives for the First Missionary Team" (folder 1-27).


The final section of the Hillis records relate to his writing, whether books or articles in Christian publications, including OC’s. Together, written to the general Christian public, these reflect Hillis’s attempt to energize missions support and consideration of a range of issues related to his experience as a missionary (such China Assignment), mission-related themes (such as Inhale the Incense on idolatry), practical theology as it relates to mission activity (such as Are the Heathen Really Lost?), attempts to stimulate missions commitment (The Spirit Speaks...Are You Listening?), and more. Represented are various book titles and many articles. Included is correspondence with publishers and editors about the production, distribution and sales, and impact of the books, as well as from readers. Also among the folders are those such as Biographies (folder 48-4), Book Reviews (folder 48-5), Published Articles Written by Other OC Personnel (folder 48-13), and Vietnam (folder 49-1). Also gathered together are files by publication title or organization, ranging from The Christian Herald to Christianity Today to The King’s Business to Power. These files not only record Hillis’s writing but also document the mission emphasis of Christian publishing between the early 1950s and the mid-1980s.


Subseries IIb: Presidents: Luis Palau

Date Range: 1976-1978

Volume: .05 cubic feet

Boxes: 1

Type of documents: Correspondence, memos, minutes, reports, publicity material

Notes: This very small subseries consists of a few documents describing the operation of the mission during Palau’s two-year presidency. Among these are a memo describing restructuring of the Board and mission (folder 1-14), Palau’s letter of resignation and associated documents (folder 1-17), a 1977 Leadership Conference (folder 1-33), answers by various leaders and staff of OC to the questions, "What are my hopes?" and "What are my expectations?," both in relation to the development of the mission.


Subseries IIc: Presidents: Clyde Cook

Arrangement: By four sections, largely as received from the president’s office: General correspondence (A-Y), OC staff (A-W), Countries (Brazil-Venezuela), and Administrative, arranged alphabetically within each section..

Date Range: 1967-1982 (primarily 1978-1981)

Volume: 5.05 cubic feet

Boxes: 1, 51-62, 70-71, 80

Geographic coverage: US and international

Type of documents: Correspondence, memos, project & trip reports, minutes, financial reports, news releases, a few news and prayer letters, statistics, promotional pieces, letters of reference, letters of resignation, article manuscripts and related correspondence, annual reports, publications, copies of documents sent to other administrators or missionaries, constitution and by-laws and other administrative documents created in Cook’s capacity of directing the mission

Correspondents: In addition to Cook, OC mission executives, staff and missionaries, leaders of other mission agencies and missions specialists, pastors in the US, church leaders in the US and countries where OC served, donors, government representatives in the US and countries where OC served, Christian publishers, etc.

Subjects: Among the subjects addressed throughout Cook’s files are broad themes such as the vision and direction of the mission, its financial healthiness, nationalization of the mission’s operations and programs in the various countries where it served, personnel issues, fund-raising, Hillis’s representation of the mission to the Christian public, the operation of the mission, and other mission-related topics.

Notes: These files span the five-year period (1978-1982) when Cook was OC’s third president. Interfiled into this section are the files of interim president Paul Yaggy, who served as acting president until Larry Keyes was appointed in 1983.


The general correspondence section, both with individuals (Leighton Ford in folder 51-10 or Juan Isais in folder 51-16 or Donald McGavran in folders 51-24,25) or organizations, contains letters which for the most part are routine and brief; the bulk of this section is from those outside the mission, but in a few cases, the correspondence comes from members of the OC family. In some cases a whole folder is designated to a single agency, such as folder 51-7 for EFMA or folder 51-8 with manuscripts and Cook’s drafts of articles for the mission publication EMQ or folder 52-2 for MARC (with correspondence with Ed Dayton). A person and the organization they represent may appear within the section both under the agency and the person’s name. In some cases, because of the way the files were received from the donor, several folders may be available for the same letter (e.g. F in folder 51-9 for 1979-1980 and 51-10 for 1981) rather than consolidated as one file. Folder 51-23 consists of correspondence with a single congregation, the Los Gatos Christian Church, that OC apparently had a longstanding relationship with. Sprinkled throughout the General Correspondence section are responses to a survey on “Attitudes on Divorce and Remarriage as it Pertains to Missionary Candidates.”


The staff section consists almost entirely of correspondence and memos or reports between missionaries (some longstanding with the mission) and the president or other administrative staff, although there is an occasional article or presentation manuscript or copies of communication between others (such as from Keith Davis to Donald McGavran in folder 53-7). Ranging from short routine notes to more extended discussions of philosophy or strategy, the correspondence reflects activity in the US office and in the many countries the mission was operating in. These files represent most if not all OC missionaries working at the time, as listed below.

Included among the department’s files were prayer letter files, each corresponding to a missionary or family, providing an alternate path to the prayer letters rather than by chronology in the following series.

Also included are the contents of a notebook containing publications and public relations materials.

Several other examples are bulletins related to a particular country (Brazil in folders 1-49, France in folder 1-50, Greece in folder 1-51, Philippines in folder 1-54)) or ministry emphasis (Sports Ambassadors in folder 1-55), or announcing the mission’s name change (folder 1-52).


Series VIc. Development: Prayer letters

Arrangement: Chronologically by month

Date Range: 1963-1995

Volume: 8.75 cubic feet

Boxes: 1, 5-26

Type of documents: Prayer letters intended for distribution to prayer and financial supporters

Notes: Contained in this series are prayer letters from most individual missionaries, appearing under several related titles, documenting developments within the mission, in the countries where OC was working, and in the lives of its staff. These span most of OC’s history, recording the activities of its missionary and executive administrative staff. However, these letters were produced through OC headquarters and were used for broad circulation and tended, therefore, to be general in nature. Newsletter photo files existed for prayer letters spanning 1964 to 1978 and these files produced the majority of the photographs described in the Photo File Location Record which follows. Many of the photos appearing there, sampled for retention in this collection, were reproduced in these prayer letters and are therefore the only remaining copy of those images. 1962 letters can be found in folder 3-2. A few prayer letters will also be found in box 1 arranged by person: Clyde Cook (folder 1-42), Dick Hillis (folder 1-43), Charles Holsinger (folder 1-44), Bud Schaeffer (folder 1-45), Paul Yaggy (folder 1-46), fund-raising (folder 1-47), and Larry Keyes’ appointment as president (folder 1-48).


Series VId. Photographs

Arrangement: Alphabetical by folder title

Date Range: 1959-1978

Volume: 2.5 cubic feet

Notes: The photographs in the collection are predominantly those used by the Development Division (or its preceding departments) in the production of individual’s or families’ prayer letters or official publications of the mission, giving a very extensive record of OC’s missionaries and administrators; it does not appear that Stateside office staff are consistently included. These are arranged by folders in alphabetical, almost entirely by personal name, and range from those relatively briefly with the mission to long-time workers. Included are duplicated prayer cards with a photograph produced to stimulate prayer and financial support for individuals and families. Other than the prayer cards, the vast majority of photos are candid shots. The photo files were sampled rather than included in their entirety, including primarily shots of the missionaries doing their work, with national workers, or their families. Shots of identified national workers were occasionally included. Shots excluded were those of unidentified nationals, group shots, children of missionaries and other relatives, and local scenery. The collection includes the vast majority of the prayer letters in which these shots were used, so those photographs not included can still be accessed through that form. Also among the are shots of non-OC figures well known in Evangelical and other circles, including Billy Graham, Chuck Colson, J. Edwin Orr, Ralph Covell, C. Peter Wagner, John MacArthur and others. Several unidentified slides and negatives which accompanied the prayer letter photo files were not retained.
