ORTHODOX MISSION TEAMS
Share in a Journey of Faith!
Orthodox Mission Teams are groups of Orthodox Christians who put their Faith in action, bearing witness to the Orthodox Faith all over the world. The Orthodox Christian Mission Center (OCMC) sends short-term Mission Teams, usually lasting 1-4 weeks, to assist communities in Africa, Asia, Central & South America, Europe, and some in North America.
The first OCMC Orthodox Mission Team was to Loberi, Kenya in 1987. The Team responded to the spiritual needs of fifteen Orthodox communities with no church to worship. Since the time of that mission, short-term mission teams have met many needs of people in especially difficult circumstances in economically underdeveloped countries and in young Churches.
Orthodox Mission Teams establish bonds of love, support and mutual learning between Orthodox Christians in North America and communities around the world. Mission Teams:
· Express the love, unity, and support of the Orthodox Church around the world.
· Share the teachings of the Orthodox Faith.
· Help Orthodox communities in need.
· Increase awareness of the importance of international missions at home.
