OCMC News - Parish Team Opportunities

OCMC News - Parish Team Opportunities
Last year's team from Saint Vladimir's Seminary, teaching and praying with the Orthodox in Uganda!

Parish teams are a great way to introduce an entire community to the missionary vocation of the Church! By traveling to the mission field as a group, a congregation can gain a much deeper perspective of why and how we, as Orthodox Christians, do missionary work. On a parish team, individuals see firsthand how much the world around us needs Christ, and they are given an opportunity to share the Gospel and serve His people. This empowers the community to go and do the same thing back home.

Studies show that once people serve on mission teams, they are more likely to get involved in outreach ministries within their own communities. They also become more aware of their own parish’s responsibility to reach out beyond her borders and actively become a welcoming place for new believers. The team experience also gives parishioners a chance to see how they may be called to serve the Church in a greater capacity, whether locally or overseas.

If you’re interested in coordinating a team for your parish, please reach out to us! The process begins with a parish registration form. OCMC will work with the parish to find the best team option for the community.

Parish-sponsored mission teams are great opportunities for a parish! If your parish is ready to send a team, don’t hesitate to reach out to us for more information. You can e-mail us at teams@ocmc.org or call 1-877-463-6784.

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.
