Volunteer

You can volunteer today through the Orthodox Christian Mission Center. OCMC is a pan-Orthodox organization endorsed by the Assembly of Orthodox Bishops. OCMC provides opportunities for you to serve on short-term mission teams in Guatemala (1-2 weeks) and they offer possibilities for long-term work abroad (2 years). For more info, view the upcoming short-term mission trips or inquire about becoming a long-term missionary.
