Let's Trek 4 Missions!
Welcome to my OCMC 2020 Virtual Trek4Missions page. During these challenging times, there are a number of things I am focusing on. Closest to my heart is to raise funds to send more missionaries to the ends of the earth to share the love of Christ!
Last year I trekked over 200 miles with my son, Fr. Stephanos, on OCMC's first Trek4Missions. We concluded with a liturgy on top of the highest mountain in the contiguous United States and with an outpouring of generosity for missions, over $100,000 was raised.
This year we will go beyond that. We'll be joined by people from all over the country on a virtual Trek4Missions. Together, we again hope to raise over $100,000 and this time Trek a combined 60,000 miles in order to send missionaries to share the love of Christ in a world that is suffering and thirsting for meaning more than ever before.
For the Trekking portion, I will head to the High Sierras again, this time on a 50-mile mountaineering journey. That will be proceeded by joining some Trekkers from San Diego on the Swim-for-Hope Team who will do a 20-mile open water swim from Catalina Island to the coast of California (I'll be paddling a kayak across the ocean, not swimming, as support for the swimmers and encouragement for these individuals who are joining us to Trek 4 Missions).
I'm also proud to be a part of the OCMC Board team. You can see the link to the team on this page. OCMC's board is fantastic. Last year they gave $50,000 in matching funds towards the Trek. This year we've formed a board members team and a number of board members will be trekking with us too.
The Trek4Missions is taking place over five weeks, from August 9 to September 14, as we raise awareness and funds for OCMC's efforts to make disciples of all nations by bringing people to Christ and His Church. Remember, there are over 1 billion people who have yet to hear the Gospel message. They cannot be reached unless there are missionaries to send.
OCMC is supported by individuals like you and me. Donations large and small help OCMC to recruit, train, send, and support missionaries who are taking up their cross to follow Christ.
Join me to help send disciples and save lives! I hope you will support these efforts by donating to my page. Or, if you like, its not too late to join an existing team and get others to sponsor you, or even start your own team. Its easy, just follow the prompts on the Trek home page (found at ocmc.org, Serve from Home, Join an Event tab), or give us a call at 1 (877) GOFORTH and we will walk you through it.
Together we can make a difference, even during these difficult times, and help bring the life-transforming love of Christ into the world! Let's Trek4Missions!
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)
