OCMC News - 2010 Orthodox Mission Team Opportunities Now Available
Share in a journey of faith. Join a 2010 Orthodox Mission Team and invite others into the Body of Christ by offering a living witness of the Orthodox Faith by teaching, ministering to the youth, offering outreach, or providing health care.
The Orthodox Christian Mission Center (OCMC) in St. Augustine, Florida, is offering you the opportunity to join one of the Orthodox Mission Teams in 2010. Acknowledge your commitment in implementing Christ's Great Commission by serving on a short-term mission team.
There is a need to present a visible expression of the love, unity, and support that truly exists within the Holy Orthodox Church around the world; to share the teachings of the Faith and to provide needy communities around the globe with labor; and to increase awareness of overseas churches and the unending mission efforts of the Church. Your continued support of Orthodox missions is greatly needed, and you can help by serving on a Mission Team.
