Missionaries needed - Youth and young adult workers
July 29, 2004
"What good fortune therefore it is to receive a good, truly Christian upbringing, to enter with it into the years of youth, then in the same spirit to enter into the years of adulthood." -St. Theophan the Recluse
The Orthodox Christian Mission Center (OCMC), St. Augustine, FL - Hierarchs around the world have requested our help! The Orthodox Christian Mission Center (OCMC) is looking for those who work with youth and young adults to help the Church in Africa, Eastern Europe and Latin America. Working with young people is a priority in our local parishes and it is also a priority for Orthodox throughout the world.
If you are a youth and young adult worker, leader or coordinator, or you have experience in this area, consider if God is calling you to use your talents and experience in the mission field on a 1-2 year placement. Most of the people who are called to go the mission field never go - will you be someone who answers the call and goes?
Your impact as a missionary youth and young adult worker could be greater than you think. The young people you teach and inspire today will be leaders in the Church tomorrow; perhaps some will also answer the call to be missionaries themselves! Your work will help the Church grow and reach out to others who have not experienced the joy of knowing Christ. Consider serving as an OCMC Missionary and help make disciples of all nations!
