OCMC News - Make a New Decade Donation to the Orthodox Christian Mission Center!

OCMC News - Make a New Decade Donation to the Orthodox Christian Mission Center!
Make a new decade contribution to the Orthodox Christian Mission Center so that more people around the world can be reached with the love of Christ and embrace the Orthodox Christian Faith.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

What a difference 10 years can make…

Back in 2010, there were 15 Orthodox Christian missionaries serving in 3 countries through the Mission Center. We had sent out just over 1,100 people on mission teams. OCMC was very active in a couple of countries in Europe and several across Africa. Missions in Central and South America were limited.

In the years that followed, we came a long way…thanks to you!

As 2019 came to a close, through your prayers, support, and involvement, 32 missionaries were living and serving in 8 countries, nearly 1,900 people had served as part of a mission team, and OCMC ministries were active on every continent around the globe except Antarctica.
What impact did this have in the world? Well, in the past decade, through the OCMC, you were on the front lines of the following:

  • Tens of thousands of people embraced Orthodoxy in Guatemala and Mexico.
  • OCMC ministries began witnessing in places like Colombia, Fiji, Indonesia, and Sweden.
  • Growth in the number of Faithful was so explosive in places like Kenya that three new dioceses were established in that country.
  • An outpouring of love and support from the Church reached thousands of people in Guatemala and Albania in response to disasters that ravaged these countries.

Just imagine what can be done in the next 10 years if we continue to take to heart Christ’s call to “make disciples of all nations!”

With your new decade donation to the Orthodox Christian Mission Center of $75, $100, or $150, you can help write the next chapter in Orthodox Christianity’s outreach to the world.

In 2020 alone, thousands of people in 7 countries await the arrival of mission teams from the United States, and 5 people are prayerfully preparing to begin long-term missionary service in Albania, Kenya, and Sweden.

Let’s do more…A LOT more…in the coming decade!

Thank you for your prayers for and commitment to Orthodox Missions. It is urgently needed. Invite others to answer the call as well. Let’s act as an entire body of believers to share the Orthodox Christian Faith in even more places in the years to come!

In Christ,

Fr. Martin Ritsi
Executive Director

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.
