Welcome to Team Sverige's OCMC 2020 Virtual Trek4Missions page! During these unprecedented times, Team Sverige (Sweden) made a pledge to focus on our personal health and help send OCMC missionaries to the ends of the earth to preach the Gospel of Christ! Together we are accepting the challenge to "trek" through our community to bring awareness of Orthodox missions. Our goal is to complete 1,200 miles.
OCMC's mission is to fulfill Christ's Great Commission and make disciples of all nations by bringing people to Christ and His Church. All proceeds raised through our fundraising will go directly toward Elaine Piniat's mission work in Scandinavia.
Elaine will be one of OCMC's first missionaries to Scandinavia. She'll be based in Sweden, one of the "least religious" nations, according to an international Gallup poll. Seventy-three percent of Swedes say they're either "not religious" or "convinced atheists." Elaine will be using 10 years of journalism experience to preach the Gospel and spread the message of Orthodoxy in the digital world. Her efforts will support the Metropolis of Sweden and All Scandinavia, as she does in-person outreach and builds a multi-platform online presence that inspires spiritual growth.
OCMC is supported by individual donors like our team. Donations large and small help reach people across the world for Christ. One billion people have yet to hear the Good News. Help change lives by donating to our page or joining our team. By joining Team Svergie, you'll help complete our goal by walking, running, cycling, and more, along with raising funds for OCMC.
Together we can help bring the life-transforming Gospel into the world!
The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; Therefore, pray to the Lord of the Harvest to send out laborers into His harvest." (Luke 10:2)
