Team Leader Rob Weyand and his wife, Kelsey, are two of the 12 members of Team Tampa XIII – an outreach English camp team from Oakwood and Candlewood Community Churches. Since 2000, Oakwood has partnered with the Brno Evangelical Fellowship in the city of Brno, Czech Republic, by providing English teachers for their outreach English camps. Candlewood Community Church, a daughter church of Oakwood, has participated since its birth in 2007. The teachers have been people like you who stepped out of their comfort zones in order to serve fellow Czech Christians as they witness to their family, friends, coworkers, and neighbors.

Oakwood (and now Candlewood too) has had a special relationship with Brno Evangelical Fellowship Church in the Czech Republic. For the 13th wonderful year, we are preparing to send a team to partner with them in an outreach English Camp. Just a few weeks ago, two of our former members, also partnered with them in outreach music concerts that were very beneficial in many ways. Here is a letter from the congregation’s pastor. It is filled with wisdom, insight, and great encouragement to us.”
