OpenHeart began in 2005 with a vision to encourage the body of Christ, His church, to release the gifts of music, drama, dance and arts into mission. After the first gathering in Bognor Regis-UK, it was clear that God was making connections right across Europe with those who desired to share in, and be equipped by, this dynamic vision to respond to God's word and "go into all the world".
OpenHeart has connected a network of churches that desire to encourage and support each other for the sake of the Kingdom of God. From these churches many individuals have been sent and received across the nations with the heart for mission.
Open Heart Ministry is more than a group of churches in fellowship. It is more than Artists using their talents. Even more than mission hearted christians wanting to reach the lost. It is all these things in a unique blend of cultures brought from the nations of the world.
