Oakdale’s mission ministry equips ordinary people to go, and do extraordinary things carrying the love of Christ. Through discipleship, we connect people with volunteer opportunities within the church, the community, the nation, or around the globe based on their spiritual gifts, passions, life experiences, and personality.

"We must be global Christians with a global vision because our God is a global God." —John Stott

“You did not choose me, I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit." —John 15: 16 NIV


Joe Duthie will be giving the message at Oakdale both in-person and online on Sunday April 25.
Joe Duthie is originally from India but now lives with his family in Georgia. Born and raised in a tea plantation where his father worked.  He graduated with Finance and Accounting and MBA in Human Resources Development. After working in the corporate world for some years, God called Joe Duthie to serve Him. He moved to north India as missionary. Later the Lord has placed him in many leadership roles including Regional Director for Asia-Pacific and eventually, he was appointed as the International Director of Ambassadors for Christ International (AFCI). He was involved in training and developing leaders and teams in 26 nations around the world. Later, he stepped aside as God called him to mobilize believers as witnesses worldwide and he founded an organization called Christian Ambassadors Network (CAN) focusing on evangelism and discipleship. His wife, Rhoda has been great support all through the years of their ministry. CAN is active in India, few Middle Eastern countries, the UK, and the USA. CAN is in the process of launching a mobile app to mobilize, equip and network, believers around the world to be active and effective in evangelism. 

Please Pray: For the new organization Christian Ambassadors Network (CAN) and for the build out of the mobile app.
