Mission

United Christian Mission is an organization which helps impoverished countries which have experienced terrible strife due to civil wars, ethnic conflicts, lack of resources and education, and non-existent infrastructure among other things. In these poor countries, violence is rampart and hunger is the daily norm. The severity of these recurring acts of violence has escalated to the point where church buildings have been vandalized, congregations scattered, and local ministries are suffering tremendously. The UCM program works among the un-reached communities of Nigeria, Ghana, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Uganda, Rwanda, Sudan, Kenya, Burundi and the Philippines, just to name a few, by helping them to develop sustainable infrastructure, schools, drinking wells, and medical facilities. Its mission is to reach the un-reached and enable communities implement sustainable community development projects. This program can be described in one word – humanitarian. Many lives have been saved and countless more continue to be as feeding programs outreach some of the most undernourished communities, victims of war and famine, and poverty stricken families and communities.

Each year, many participants raise their fee through steady, determined fundraising and hard work. Most raise their fee by soliciting the aid of college, community, and religious groups. They hold auctions, bake sales, garage sales, and benefits on their campuses and in their communities. In exchange for financial support, upon their return, they commit themselves to sharing their experience with those who contributed to their journey.
Successful fundraising requires a willingness on the applicant’s part to articulate a fundraising plan and to ask others for helrelatives, and colleagues to form a support committee for their effort. OWR does everything possible to assist those interested persons who are uncertain about their ability to pay the participation fee. We provide fundraising ideas, contacts with others who have successfully raised their fee in the past and consistent encouragement in the process. It is up to you, however, to initiate and undertake the fundraising process.
Because OWR is a not-for-profit organization, contributions to it on an applicant’s behalf are tax-deductible in the United States to the fullest extent the law allows.
