OCMC Missionary Fr. Paul Patitsas Visits the Mission Center to Share a Call for Help

Imagine living far away from everything that you had come to know as "home". What would compel you to make such a sacrifice? For Orthodox Christian missionaries, it is the call to serve in places where the Faith needs to be shared.The Patitsas family is a missionary family who have been answering this call for many years. They serve out of New Zealand where Fr. Paul and his wife tend a small parish. New Zealand is home to a small Orthodox community, but they have something...

Volunteers Needed for Youth Ministry Outreach

Empower youth and teens in countries where youth ministry is evolving and opportunities for youth leadership exist. Orthodox Mission Teams to Ghana, Kenya, and Mexico will offer programs for students and adult leaders, giving them the opportunity to develop vision for their youth groups, as well as teach the Biblical basics of youth ministry and offer a Christian witness. These teams will model servant leadership by assisting in small groups, recreation, and prayer. OCMC invites you to join these opportunities in youth ministry.

By participating on an OCMC health care outreach, you will treat illnesses, care for the poor and needy, offer public health training and be a witness of our Orthodox Faith.

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.
