OCMC News - George Georges Leaves Behind a Great Legacy
Bequests from people like Mr. George Georges have a tremendous impact on the lives of people around the world who are reached by the missionary witness of the Orthodox Church through the OCMC. Please prayerfully consider sharing the Orthodox Faith as part of your legacy as well to make more scenes like this possible.

“...For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” (Matthew 6:21)

Our own passing can be difficult to plan for, but with some preparation, it can be an opportunity to leave behind a great legacy. George Georges is one man who did exactly that. With his final act of charity and stewardship, he bequeathed $750,000 to OCMC - an incredible gift of support. With his passing, Mr. Georges chose to place his treasure and his heart in the ongoing missionary work of the Church.

We at OCMC are incredibly grateful for this and will insure that his generous donation goes a long way in sharing the love and teachings of Christ with the world. The impact of Mr. Georges's final offering is immense. His bequest could underwrite the work of the Mission Center in Guatemala, Kenya, Fiji, South Korea, and Tonga for an entire year - sharing the Faith and transforming lives on 4 continents!

It’s important for all of us to carefully plan ahead, to see that our legacy takes care of our loved ones, and even goes further by supporting the ministries of the Church. Let your loved ones know why providing for the ministries of OCMC is in your heart and why you want to leave behind a legacy of stewardship.

Ways to leave a legacy to the Orthodox Christian Mission Center:

  1. Bequest in a Will
    While providing for your beneficiaries in your will, you can include a charitable gift for a specific amount, a percentage, or a remainder of your estate.
  2. Life Insurance Policy
    You can turn a life insurance policy into charitable support. By naming the Orthodox Christian Mission Center as the owner or beneficiary of an existing or new life insurance policy, you can make a significant gift.
  3. Savings and Investment Accounts
    Naming the Orthodox Christian Mission Center as a beneficiary of your savings or investment account is an easy way to leave a legacy.
  4. Gift in a Trust
    The Orthodox Christian Mission Center can be designated as a beneficiary of a revocable or irrevocable trust.
  5. Real Estate
    You may donate residential, commercial, or undeveloped property.
  6. Securities
    Giving long-term appreciated securities saves capital gains tax and may serve you better than giving cash. The donor of stock donation receives a tax deduction for the stock’s fair market value.

Please consult your professional legal or tax advisor when preparing estate plans. Staff and volunteers of OCMC cannot provide legal or tax advice.

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.
