Why I hosted otLIVE at my church – Pastor Gavin Wood, Northcliff Union Church, Johannesburg 

otLIVE is so valuable for churches. I have seen this event used of the Lord to ignite a passion in people for a closer walk with Him – and a deeper desire to know and live the Gospel. otLIVE  is designed in such a way that people engage with the grand story of God’s salvation in a personal way, while learning great truths about God and His Word.

Due to its fun interactive learning style and group dynamic, people are able to learn more about the Bible in a few hours than they would usually do in months, if not longer.

It also seems to be much easier to address difficult areas of discipleship during the event because people are far more engaged with the teaching than during a Sunday sermon.

As people really enjoy this fun learning experience, defences are lowered so that spiritual truth can deeply penetrate and bring about Holy Spirit-enabled transformation. There are also helpful points of application. It is not unusual for people to accept Christ or make a recommitment to him right in the middle of otLIVE.

As one of the participants commented:
“Before, I felt I was ankle deep in the Holy Spirit, after otLIVE I was knee deep!”
