Mission

The Orthodox Christian Mission Center (OCMC) proclaims and practices the evangelical imperative of the Orthodox faith based on the Gospel of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, who commissioned us to go "and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit" (Matthew 28:19). OCMC recruits, trains and sends missionaries to preach, teach, baptize and to minister to the poor, hungry, sick, suffering and orphaned. We, therefore, support the development of indigenous leaders and strengthen the infrastructures of churches, especially in, though not limited to, countries where Christianity is a minority, thus creating vibrant, eucharistic Orthodox Christian communities throughout the world.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

As the official missions agency of the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of the United States it is OCMC's mission to make disciples of all nations by bringing people to Christ and His Church.

1.We value proclaiming and witnessing Christ to all people with priority given to those who have never heard or accepted the Gospel.
2. We value sharing the love of Christ for the care of the total person – spiritual and physical.
3. We value ministry in the language and culture of the people.
4. We value our people – well-trained Missionaries, Staff, Board, Supporters, Indigenous Leadership and those being served.
5. We value communities, parishes, and individuals that are mission-minded and have active mission involvement.
6. We value being an open and transparent agency that values the gifts of stewardship provided to us by the faithful.

OCMC Missionaries typically dedicate two or more years of their lives to sharing the Orthodox Faith abroad. The missionaries, and missionary families, listed below are all either in the midst of, or preparing for, their terms of service. Please visit their missionary pages to learn more about their various ministries and to offer your support so that they may continue to answer the call to make disciples of all nations on behalf of the Orthodox Christian Church.

We currently have 26 long-term missionaries serving internationally. Our target is to have 50 or more over the the next several years.
