We take this Great Commission from Jesus seriously. We all have a mandate to live a life that looks like Jesus, as we are on mission for Him. Since our beginnings, OLCC has had the privilege to support and send many people who are making disciples for Jesus. We give just over 10% of our annual budget to support local and global mission.
Look below to have a read through of the places and people we are involved with supporting. It's not only with our finances that we are working with our various partners, but there are practical ways too.
If you would like to join us in any way with supporting our mission partners, please let us know and we will help you find out how to get connected with missions.
