History Of Ministry

The ministry of Understand The Times was founded by Roger Oakland in 1990.

Rogerís goal is to work with like-minded ministries, to reach as many people as possible as effectively as possible with the gospel of Jesus Christ. His calling is to proclaim that the scriptures are the key to understanding the past, the present and the future. His gifting is to make difficult subjects understandable. His desire is to strengthen the faith of believers and challenge those who do not believe to consider the Bible as Godís infallible Word.

Roger became a Christian in 1978. His conversion from evolution to creation to Christ is documented in a book titled ďLet There Be LightĒ available on this web site.

The first phase of Rogerís ministry was with Glen and Larry Mc Lean, based in Eston, Saskatchewan from 1980 to 1988. In September of 1988 Roger and his family moved from Canada to southern California where he was on staff with Chuck Smith at Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa for three years.

Following the formation of Understand The Times (non-profit organization in both Canada and the USA) doors opened for Roger to travel internationally and share the gospel world-wide. He has ministered in over 40 different countries and has been to Russia and other republics of the former Soviet Union 37 times since 1990.

His books, videos and DVDís have been translated into many different languages.

Understand The Times is an independent non-profit organization in Canada and the United States.
Understand The Times is not affiliated or dependent upon any other organization or denomination.
Understand The Times is accountable to a board of directors in the United States and Canada and accountable,
first of all, to Jesus Christ and His word.
