Every year, OCF Council members and staff prayerfully gather to set ministry-wide priorities to guide ministry efforts and resourcing for the next fiscal year, which begins 1 June. Below is a snapshot of each of the three priorities, along with ways you might be able to engage with the broader OCF community and get involved.
1. Fan the Flame of Fellowship
“And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works. Not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near” (Hebrews 10:24-25, ESV).
What you need to know: Our goal is to reinforce the value of uniting in authentic biblical fellowship both within local groups and at OCF’s conference centers.
How you can get involved: Visit ocfusa.org/directory to find a small group near you. Start a group if one does not yet exist, and let the home office and other OCF members know by completing the form at ocfusa.org/list-me. Sign up for a program at springcanyon.org (CO) or whitesulphursprings.org (PA).

2. Expand & Mature the Local Leader Network
“Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they are keeping watch over your souls, as those who will have to give an account. Let them do this with joy and not groaning” (Hebrews 13:17, ESV).
What you need to know: As hundreds of Local Leaders across the world start, sustain, and hand off leadership of a specific OCF small group, our goal is to provide the support that will equip these individuals. To that end, OCF will invest in the recruiting, equipping, and strengthening of the Local Leader Network.
How you can get involved: If you feel the Lord calling you to serve as a Local Leader, visit ocfusa.org/list-me so that other OCF members in your area can find you. Additionally, pray for Local Leaders and their ministries to the military community scattered across the world.

3. Accelerate & Diversify Donations
“The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully” (2 Corinthians 9:6, ESV).
What you need to know: OCF ministry efforts are predominantly funded by donations, making a vast and varied base of active donors vital. As such, our goal is to mobilize members, companies, foundations, and others who will step forward and financially support OCF’s mission and vision.
How you can get involved: Visit ocfusa.org/donate to learn about unique ways you can support OCF.
