The Orthodox Christian Mission Center (OCMC) proclaims and practices the evangelical imperative of the Orthodox faith based on the Gospel of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, who commissioned us to go “and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:19). OCMC recruits, trains and sends missionaries to preach, teach, baptize and to minister to the poor, hungry, sick, suffering and orphaned. They support the development of indigenous leaders and strengthen the infrastructures of churches, especially in, though not limited to, countries where Christianity is a minority, thus creating vibrant, eucharistic Orthodox Christian communities throughout the world.
The Orthodox Christian Mission Center, a pan-Orthodox international mission agency, helps Orthodox Christians under SCOBA respond to Christ’s call to make disciples of all nations. The Mission Center sends people to serve around the world, as long-term missionaries or as members of short-term mission teams.
OCMC supports the development and work of indigenous leaders, including clergy and laity, and helps to build up Church infrastructures, outreach projects and vibrant Eucharistic Orthodox communities through the sending of missionaries, mission teams and financial assistance.
