The Oita International Christian Fellowship started about 25 years ago.
It began as an outreach to Japanese people who were interested in learning about the Bible in English and was a place for foreign teachers to bring students with that interest. After some time, the leaders were really feeling the need for their own encouragement and fellowship time and so began a morning worship time at Compal Hall, the place we meet today.
OICF has always been unique in that we have never had one leader or pastor but have all shared in the responsibilities of leading music, Bible study and kids activities. People have come and continue to come from many different countries, adding to the excitement and amazing diversity which we have all come to enjoy and appreciate. Some people are more permanent and others are with us for as long as their work or study continues.
Our doors are open to everyone. Come and join us in worship and fellowship!
