You are invited to "come and see" the efforts underway in the mission field by participating on an OCMC Mission Team. It starts with an application, and then the staff at OCMC will walk you through the rest of the preparation steps. You will receive fundraising tips, travel with a group, and make a lasting change in the lives of those you minister to. Many Team members report back that their own life has been changed. Apply today! Contact OCMC at teams@ocmc.org or apply online at https://www.ocmc.org/about/open_teams.aspx.

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.
