OBIC Ministries welcomes you to come and discover our adventurous, playful, loving, passionate, peaceful, joyful, wild, fierce,  and extravagantly generous God!   Here you’ll see, and smell, and feel the majesty of our magnificent horses.  Then, you can hold a soft, fluffy bunny in your arms and feel its whiskers tickle your hands in search of carrots.  You can feel the tug of a giant catfish on the end of your line in our super stocked pond.  Then hike the scripture lined trails over streams and find a peaceful prayer station to be alone with God.

You might find yourself playing soccer, football, lacrosse, or baseball on our fields. Or maybe a cookout at the pavilion followed by some lakeside volleyball.  Or perhaps a bonfire with live music or a movie on the big outdoor screen.  Where ever you choose to play or rest or adventure you will be sure to encounter the presence of God!

    Words can be the deadliest of weapons, the most grieving attacks to the human heart, mind, and soul –the cause of the most pain, suffering, and doubt.   Whether or not the words are true, they hurt. They are like darts piercing even through the most calloused heart, the most trained mind, and the strongest soul. They launch at the…

  • Jesus 89 playingHard to Believe You are Lovable?

    I received a message from a sweet girl the other day.  She was struggling to allow herself to be loved by others and it was hindering relationships she really cared about. I wanted to share the messages I received from the Lord to encourage her and hopefully it will encourage you as well! Our fear is that we think we are not lovable.…
