A little over a year ago, I learned about a fantastic UK-based website called OSCAR, which stands for One Stop Center for Advice and Resources. As they say on their “About” page, “If you’re involved or interested in Christian or mission work, in the UK or overseas, OSCAR is your gateway to useful, related opportunities, information, advice and resources.” We are thrilled to be partnering with them to help inform the global church about what God is doing in China.
In addition to articles and information about opportunities to serve overseas, OSCAR also offers several training courses, either in-person or online. One of these is “British Culture Orientation”, designed for those who have or are coming to the UK from overseas to live and work. Recent years have seen a large influx of new arrivals from China and Hong Kong, for whom such a course is a valuable resource.
I recently connected with Mike Frith, the founder and director of OSCAR, to learn more about the work of OSCAR in general, and the British culture course in particular.
Please take the time to check out the fantastic resources available on OSCAR.
