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.

As faithful stewards of your donation, we apply all funds received as designated. Please note that in the event the mission project you designate is overfunded or no longer applicable, your donation will be applied to the project (or region) most needed to continue the work of OCMC.
