The 2019 Trek4Missions Combines Two Epic Trails

THE SIERRA HIGH ROUTEThe trek begins with 4 days and 60 miles on what is noted as the most challenging mountaineering route in North America – the Sierra High Route. Our section of the route climbs over steep 12,000 foot granite mountain passes, wanders through spectacular glacier-carved alpine valleys, crosses rapid mountain streams, negotiates class 3 climbs, and stays higher than 10,000 feet above sea level.

New Ways to Serve as a Missionary!
New Ways to Serve as a Missionary!

Could you see yourself spending a gap year of service in the mission field? What about just a few months?Until now, at OCMC, we didn't have an easy way to facilitate that; people would usually either spend 10 days in the mission field with a team, or dedicate 2+ years in long-term missionary service. We're excited to be rolling out some more options, however, that will give more people the opportunity to serve in whatever capacity suits them the best.Mission...

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.
