by Orthodox Christian Mission Center (Posted 12/6/2017)

OCMC News - There are Still Opportunities to Grow Orthodox Missions and Change Lives in 2017!
Please prayerfully consider helping Orthodox mission grow and transform the lives of more people around the world before 2017 comes to a close. Give and see the impact of that gift doubled thanks to challenge grants. Contribute through your IRA, or join a team in 2018!

As the year draws to a close, we would like to share with you some impactful ways to help further the Orthodox Church’s mission witness around the world through the Orthodox Christian Mission Center.

Challenge Grants

OCMC has been awarded $46,500 in challenge grants from numerous stewards of the OCMC. The impact of your gift to the Mission Center by year’s end can be doubled! Simply visit https://www.ocmc.org/donate/donate.aspx to make your gift today!

IRA Contributions

If you are 70½ and older, you may transfer up to $100,000 of your IRA assets to the Orthodox Christian Mission Center (OCMC) without incurring Federal income tax, and the gift qualifies towards your 2017 RMD (Required Minimum Distribution). Your spouse may do the same from his/her IRA.

Gifts must be made directly from your IRA to the Orthodox Christian Mission Center by December 31, 2017. Please be sure to keep documentation for the donation as you would substantiate any other charitable contribution.

Join an OCMC Short-term Mission Team

2018 Orthodox Mission Team opportunities are now available. The Mission Center is seeking in upwards of 150 volunteers to travel to Alaska, Albania, Ghana, Guatemala, Indonesia, Kenya or Mexico to serve as a living witness to the Orthodox Christian Faith and to minister to the physical and spiritual needs of others.

Please prayerfully consider joining one of these teams. Visit https://www.ocmc.org/about/open_teams.aspx to learn more and to apply.

Your offering of time, financial resources and prayer will help get 2018 off to a good start! You help is greatly needed as we prepare to send 17 short-term mission teams and new missionaries to places like Albania and Guatemala. Your prayerful offering will also help underwrite multiple projects around the world aimed at caring for orphans, providing much-needed healthcare and encouraging self-reliance.

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.
