Service Separations

[…]group from church or chapel, such as your local chapter of Protestant Women of the Chapel (contact your chaplain’s office for PWOC information). It may be from the local Officers’ Christian Fellowship (OCF) group, or Christian Military Fellowship (CMF) group. It may be from some Christian friends on the same street. In my case, OCF was the one place I could go by myself and not feel like a fifth wheel! If I was discouraged and frustrated (and no one is immune from this) OCF was the place where I could unload my troubles. Since Ididn’t work outside the home, […]

OCF at Garden Tomb

[…]conference center in White Sulphur Springs, PA, invite OCFers travelling to the Holy Land to contact them. The Meryons oversee the Garden Tomb in Jerusalem. “Rosalind and I greatly want to greet OCFers and their churches and groups. We will endeavor to welcome every one of you to this pinnacle experience during your time in Israel.” The Meryons were on the British Naval Staff in Washington, DC, from 1985-88 and back again from1992-1995 at the NATO headquarters in Norfolk, VA. Their son, David, who was born in 1987 in Fairfax County Hospital, plans to be the U.S. President in 2028 […]

Preparing for Active Duty

[…]the home office can provide a list of OCF members in the area. Perhaps they can put you in contact with an ongoing study. If there is no OCF study, ask God if you should start one. A wealth of “user friendly” Bible study material is available on the OCF website.The point–stay connected with OCF. Don’t wait for someone to contact you. Be a leader who will make a Kingdom difference. Now, what can you expect from OCF at Maxwell? We see Maxwell as a spiritual “touchpoint.” Our ministry hope is reflected in this slogan: Touch people’s lives…Grow them deep…Commission […]

Six Generations: 3

[…]have seen what I saw and that was the realness for Jesus Christ.” I knew at the time I contacted John that he was heading up a group of men at Fort Hood who were preparing to host a Central Texas-wide Christian Men’s Conference. They had planned it for 11 months and briefed the concept to the Garrison Commander, receiving his approval to proceed. When I re-established contact in April of 2002, John and his group had just completed the conference, whose guest speakers included author Stu Weber and pro-football great, Hershel Walker. His note to me: “…we just had […]

Do you have a PCS sponsor—to heaven?

[…]sponsor for that coming day.   Marine Corps: As a sponsor…you provide initial important contact [and] first impression of our unit. Jesus provides the connection between God and us, “For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins” (Colossians 1:13-14). Navy: Meet incoming Sailors/families…Remember the feelings and confusion experienced as a new arrival.

Interview with Chaplain Beach

[…]study of the New Testament. Here are some possible actions. Build a friendship and maintain contact with the chaplain regardless of differences in theology. Pray for and with one another when you can. Find positive ways to express and discuss your differences. Make OCF or personal ministries part of the Command Religious Program by staff procedures that show you are acting openly in accord with military customs and regulations. Participate in the chapel if you can. If God leads you to a local church, try to find ways to serve and ways to participate in events at the chapel. Adapted […]

Leadership and the Christian Officer

[…]The commander and subordinates are face-to-face with them. The commander has close personal contact with subordinates. Physical courage has a great impact. The problems are relatively simple, covering small areas, few people and few types of situations. At higher levels it is quite different. While there are fewer opportunities to display personal physical courage, moral courage is a constant requirement. It is impossible to spend the desired time with subordinates, hence the commander must seek other ways to influence them. The problems are greater and more complex. The commander must look further into the future and into the unknown. Much […]

Share this spiritual gift with your teen

[…]Good kids, clean cut, wholesome, helpful, and cheerful. They are all hanging out, exchanging contact information, taking departure pictures. I will miss this place. A few quiet moments near the spring to thank God for this time. Praise You for allowing us to be here, to know You better…to share. Telling Rick thanks. Words fall short. Hugging a new brother. “Chicago” peppers the gathering with humor, we all laugh. Goodbyes are tough. Aaron drives us to Denver later that morning. T-Bar and Robinson (his son), Brian and Steve and me in the truck. Hugs goodbye at the airport. What a […]

Six Generations: 2

[…]in low voices how they should handle the enemy force. A typical tactic for this kind of contact was to pull back a safe distance and call in artillery, helicopter gunships, and jets to unload their ordnance on the unsuspecting enemy. Jon Shine’s small force could certainly count on the help of their higher headquarters’ arsenal to cover their actions. Another possibility was a frontal assault, achieving shock action and hopefully a quick, decisive victory, but a very risky venture with high probability of casualties. A third course of action involved an aggressive attack on their flank, thereby gaining some […]

Soldiers of Faith: Washington

[…]firmness at Valley Forge paid off. His character impressed all who came in contact with him. To the distinguished character of a Patriot, he exhorted his men, “it should be our highest glory to add the distinguished character of a Christian.” That he was able to pass on this virtue and character is evident by the lack of desertions, willingness of his men to drill under strict Prussian discipline, and the comments of his soldiers during this period. “Our attention is now drawn to one point,” a soldier reported in the Pennsylvania Packet, “the enemy grows weaker every day, and […]

Spiritual Battle Plans

[…]time. We develop a medical evacuation plan in the event we take casualties; we plan for actions on contact, for vehicle breakdowns, for redundant communication methods, for follow-on objectives, and for a quick reaction force to bail us out if we encounter an enemy force greater than ourselves. My experiences during my Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) deployment demonstrated to me that I needed to invest a similar level of detail and passion in my execution of SPIRITUAL planning (1 Timothy 4:7-8). Make no mistake, physical and military training must be done to accomplish the mission, to establish our credibility as […]

Time, Talent, Treasure: Academies

[…]shows you in the ways you should minister with the military. And then do it.  Austin: Keep your contact information updated with the OCF home office so that we can network more easily. It really helps our new officers to link up at their next post with another officer in OCF.   Why OCF? Burt: As a midshipman, when I was asking questions about who Jesus Christ was and why He was important to my life, two OCFers thought enough of me to invite me to an OCF retreat at White Sulphur Springs. There Jim Wilson shared the good news […]

What Are Parents to Do?

[…]to Him even more as we learned that Darren was leading nightly patrols and experiencing frequent contact with enemy forces. Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. When we received the very sad news that one of his closest friends was killed, we were overcome more by compassion–rather than fear–for the new widow, and for Darren. Although we were thankful the call we received wasn’t about Darren, we grieved. Don […]

What is Required of Me?

[…]you are excellent as they define excellence. “…and to God what is God’s.” Maintain contact; stay in fellowship with other Christians. “Two are better than one,  because they have a good return for their work”(Ecclesiastes 4:9). OCF’s purpose statement includes: “uniting Christian officers for biblical fellowship.” You have the right to and need to: Meet in fellowship, pray without ceasing, stay in the Word, worship together, and come alongside your chaplains. Practice your religious beliefs as you wish while maintaining sensitivity and respect for those of different faiths or denominations. Share your convictions. “Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone […]

What Works for New Officers?

[…]board.) TIP: Before you head to your first assignment, call OCF at 1-800-424-1984 so you can contact an officer who is an OCF member where you are going. 2. Do not forsake ACCOUNTABILITY. You are known by the company you keep. Find a brother or sister in Christ and keep each other walking the talk. Go to your chaplain and ask where the Bible studies are being held. TIP: Seek out someone who will hold you accountable. 3. Decide now WHOM YOU WILL SERVE (Josh. 24:15). Will it be the Lord or yourself? Why are you in the military? Have […]

Whose Arm Doth Reach

[…]each of us prior to deploying, so that they could be dispensed regularly even when he was out of contact…. When my dad finally did come home each year…he made us his priority—soccer games, dance classes, piano recitals—he was there…. He seemed remarkably equipped to return from long absences and reestablish immediacy in his relationships with us, to affirm us, to amuse us, to hold us accountable, and to talk us down from ledges. Perhaps his intuitive, highly verbal way of relating to us was thrust upon him, being surrounded with daughters… Whatever the source of my father’s knack for […]
