2020 VIRTUAL TREK4MISSIONS
The Orthodox Christian Mission Center invites you to take up your cross for our virtual fundraiser during this time of social distancing. We will begin on the Feast of the Glorification of St. Herman of Alaska (August 9) and conclude on the Feast of the Elevation of the Life-Giving Cross (September 14).
Missionary saints throughout our Church's history have demonstrated the responsibility of sharing the Good News of Christ entrusted to them. Like St. Herman of Alaska, Ss Cyril and Methodios, St. Nicholas of Japan, and countless others, have left the comfort of their homes and dwellings to bring Christ's love to the world. Today, over 1 billion people have never heard of the Gospel message. We are responsible to reach them as a new missionary generation answering the call to take up our cross to the ends of the earth.
Join local parishes and mission supporters nation-wide to virtually complete 60,000 collective miles to raise funds and awareness for the training and building up of Orthodox missionaries. St. Paul wrote in his letter to the Romans, "How can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: 'How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!" (Romans 10:15). Whether you are a walker, runner, swimmer, cyclist, or you just like to stay active and can track your miles, you can participate! Help bring the life-transforming Gospel to the world!
The 2020 Virtual Trek4Missions is an opportunity for individuals and parish communities to unite and demonstrate our committment to Christ's Great Commission "to make disciples of all nations" (Matthew 28:19). Start by forming a team and/or register for the event, then create your own fundraising page with us, and once we begin on August 9, trek on your own terms! The world is our course! Remember to follow your local community's health and safety guidelines during the Trek. There are no FEES to register, and shirts are guaranteed. Could you help us raise $100,000?!
