Orthodox Mission Projects

Making Disciples of all nations

Christ’s love is for the whole person – mind, body, and spirit. From water wells, to schools, to substance abuse programs, to clinics, and churches the OCMC facilitates several projects throughout the year aimed at ministering to the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs of people where missionaries, mission teams, and mission priests serve.
