OCMC – Orthodox Christian Mission Center

OCMC Mission & Purpose

The Orthodox Christian Mission Center (OCMC) is the official international missions agency of the Standing Conference of Canonical Orthodox Bishops in America (SCOBA).

Mission Statement

To help fulfill the Great Commission of Christ (Matthew 28:16); the Orthodox Christian Mission Center (OCMC) strives to establish vibrant Eucharistic communities throughout the world, to develop and support indigenous church leaders, and to strengthen the infrastructure of their churches. OCMC carries out this work primarily, though not solely, in countries where Christianity is in the minority and where the Gospel message has not been proclaimed. OCMC will recruit, train, send, and support Orthodox missionaries to preach, teach, baptize, construct, and minister to the spiritual and physical needs of those being served and saved.


OCMC has been sanctioned by SCOBA to help the faithful of North America to proclaim the fullness of the Orthodox Christian Faith with the world. Each year hundred of Orthodox Christians answer the call to make disciples of all nations through one of OCMC’s many initiatives which include:

Missionary Service
Orthodox Mission Teams
Support A Mission Priest (SAMP)
Agape Canister Program
OCMC Ambassador Program 

The Orthodox Christian Mission Center is staffed by people who are ready to help you discern your missionary journey. Please contact OCMC by phone at 1-877-463-6784 or by e-mail at missionaries@ocmc.org with any questions or if you’d like to answer the call to make disciples of all nations as an OCMC missionary.
