What is Audience of One?
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, small group time for application and reflection, and prayer and performing arts. 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 Kathleen Tabor. She has 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 Spings, CO, and Nashville, TN ( The Call 2007). 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 brethern dwell in unity...there the Lord will command the blessing" (Psalm 133). We need God's blessing and anointing before we can minister to others.
Outreach consists of two weeks of "Bootcamp" followed by two weeks of "Outreach". During bootcamp 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, "As we behold Him we become more like Him." The students are also taught a full program. The program usually consists of dances, drama, worship, and testimones. Our performing arts program gives the members the 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 the word of our testimony."
Outreaches are chaulked full of lots of fun. The students and families get an excellent oppurtunity 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. The team members are all ages. Anyone over the age of 12 can apply. If a child wants to come that is under the age of 12, then they need to bring a family member. We do not believe in seperating the generations. God calls Himself the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. We encourage three generations working together to minister God's heart to each other and to others. Families are welcome to come on outreach along with grandparents. Our performing team does mainly consist of team members aged 12-21. Older team members help with the teaching, intercession, small groups, discipling, and logistics.
