OILFIELD CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP

CALGARY CHAPTER

Our Focus: Oilfield Worker Support

One of our focus areas is to bring the message of the Gospel to Oilfield Workers that are working away from home.

While most camps have taken great measures to make the camp experience as positive as possible, some of the issues oilfield workers face are unavoidable, and isolation is one of the main issues oilfield workers have to deal with.

 

Isolation from:

  • family, spouses and children

  • their social network, their friends and work colleagues

  • their home community, recreational activities and local events for family and personal development

 

Other issues are:​

  • Difficulty integrating into the family routine when a work shift is over

  • Troubled finances

  • Stress caused by unemployment as projects and jobs start and end

  • Harsh weather conditions at the worksite

  • Fatigue caused by long work hours

  • Travel fatigue, due to time spent traveling to the worksite

  • Exposure to substance abuse and pornography

  • Boredom

  • Poor dietary choices that may lead to health issues

In some ways, it’s similar to being in jail, only with better facilities, great food - and the pay is amazing!


There is a solution!

The Christian Oilfield Fellowship puts Bibles, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, into camps and into the hands of those experiencing camp life. We pray that these Bibles will reach everyone that needs to know Jesus as their personal Savior.

Kevin Throness, is a former co-owner of Blackhawk Production Consulting, an Oilfield contracting firm based out of Dawson Creek B.C. He worked there from the 1980's to the 2000's. In his message, Kevin explains God's faithfulness in transforming a businessman into a pastor with a passion for youth ministries.

Finding God on Route 316 is a devotional for workers in the Oilfield.

If you are seeking a new life

If you have not made a commitment to Jesus as Lord of your life, God has led you here to show you that there is a group of people that are here to help. 

 

Jesus is waiting for you to come to Him. Do it today, and start a new life, for now and eternity.

Matthew 11:28 (NLT)
Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.
