Who is Audience of One (Ao1)?

Ao1 (Audience of One) is a youth discipleship program incorporating discipleship and performing arts. Our goal is to give young people an atmosphere where they are challenged to grow in their relationship with the Lord. This includes teaching on the character of God, performing arts, and small group time for application, reflection, and prayer. The young people minister the gospel through Contemporary Christian music, sign language, creative movement, and testimonies of what the Lord has done in their lives. We minister in schools, churches, prisons, malls, street corners, parks, hospitals, and any place where people gather.

We have chosen the name “Audience of One” because our primary objective is to bless God’s heart. Our worship, our dance, our devotion is to be to Him, first and foremost. He is the audience we should seek to please.

Our typical outreach team is led by David and Kathleen Tabor and Geoff and Megan Ila, who have led teams to Kenya, Australia, London, Italy, New Zealand, Hong Kong, and many other places. We have also taken teams within the U.S. We have outreached to the East Coast, the West Coast, Salt Lake City Olympics, Colorado Springs, CO, and Nashville, TN. We recognize that along with ministering to the nations it is imperative that we pray for and minister within our own nation.

Preparations and fundraising for each outreach begin at least six months before the team leaves. As our team is established we begin to meet and pray for each member, their time there, finances, logistics, and what’s on God’ s heart to accomplish wherever we are going. This is also the time where our team begins to build unity. We believe that unity is essential for every team. God’s Word says, “Where brethren dwell together in unity…there the Lord will command the blessing” (Psalm 133). We need God’s blessing and anointing before we can minister to others.

 

The Outreaches

Outreach consists of two weeks of “Boot Camp” followed by two weeks of “Outreach”. During Boot Camp the students are taught foundational Biblical truths and how to personally apply them to their lives. They are encouraged to spend extra time seeking God and learning more of His character, so that “As we behold Him we become more like Him” (2 Cor. 3:18). The students are also taught a full program, which usually consists of dances, drama, worship, and testimonies. Our performing arts program gives the team a platform to go into the community and share with others what God has been teaching them. “We overcome by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of our testimony” (Rev. 12:11).

Outreaches are chock-full of lots of fun. The students and families get an excellent opportunity to experience different nations, different cultures, foods, customs, etc. Our team members always come back with a broader perspective of God’s love for the nations and His heart for all people.

Our International teams usually consist of 30 – 50 members, although we’ve had as many as 80. As God calls Himself “the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob”, we have seen God do wonderful things through a 3-generational team working together and ministering His heart to one another and to others. We encourage families, grandparents, and anyone 12 years and older to apply. Our performing team mainly consists of team members aged 12 – 21. Older team members usually help with the teaching, intercession, work projects, small groups, discipling, and logistics.

Day 19: Outreach 5th July, 2018

Lastnight after dinner we had a reality check of sorts. Having a “Day Off” doesn’t mean we get a Day Off from Jesus. It just seems like on every outreach when we are in the last 2 weeks or week, it becomes more of a struggle to keep focused on Jesus. Both the boys and...
