OCMC News - OCMC Grants Offer Opportunities for Seminarians to Join Orthodox Mission Teams
Grants are now available for seminarians and theological students who are interested in participating on a short term Mission Team in 2010. This year Teams will serve in Alaska, Albania, Guatemala, India, Kenya, Madagascar, Romania, South Africa, South Korea, Tanzania, and Uganda. Visit http://teams.ocmc.org to apply.

The Orthodox Christian Mission Center (OCMC) has grants available for seminarians and theological students who are interested in serving on a short term Mission Team in 2010. Mission Teams are opportunities for individuals to grow spiritually, broaden their horizons, strengthen their leadership skills, and develop a vision for the needs of the world by offering a living witness to Christ through cross cultural service.

Individuals who serve on Mission Teams are visible expressions of love, unity, and support as they serve the Church around the world in different ways. In 2010, Team members will have the opportunity to teach catechism classes, preach on evangelism teams, assist in youth camp programs, or serve in orphanages. This year Teams will serve in Alaska, Albania, Guatemala, India, Kenya, Madagascar, Romania, South Africa, South Korea, Tanzania, and Uganda.

OCMC Mission Team Endowment Grants help make sharing the Gospel on a short-term Orthodox Team easier. There are currently five grants available: four grants provide $2,700 towards the participant cost of an Orthodox Mission Team and up to a $900 cash stipend, and one grant offers $1,200 toward the cost and a $400 stipend.

Those interested in applying for a Mission Team Grant must have completed at least one semester in an Orthodox seminary at the time of application, be in good standing academically, and have demonstrated church involvement. All applicants will be considered for the 2010 Orthodox Mission Teams. The application deadline is February 22.

Prayer for Missions

God of truth and love: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Hear our prayer for those who do not know You. That they may come to a saving knowledge of the truth, and that Your Name may be praised among all peoples of the world. Sustain, inspire, and enlighten Your servants who bring them the Gospel. Bring fresh vigor to wavering faith; sustain our faith when it is still fragile. Continually renew missionary zeal in ourselves and in the Church, and raise up new missionaries who will follow You to the ends of the world. Make us witnesses to Your goodness full of love, full of strength, and full of faith for Your glory and the salvation of the entire world. Through the prayers of all the missionary saints, Have mercy on us and save us. Amen.
