“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

Joshua 1:9 ESV

Celebrating 75 years of mission readiness

For over 75 years, OCF has championed the “readiness” of every Christian military leader through prayer and Bible-based fellowship. Since our founding during World War II, the mission of OCF has been to prayerfully engage military leaders, equipping them for Christ-like service at the intersection of faith, family, and profession.

A timeline of God’s faithfulness

It’s less the history of Officers’ Christian Fellowship than it is His story—God’s enduring faithfulness in 75 years of the kingdom work He’s given OCF to do for Him. The timeline points are not a complete history of OCF; the images aren’t always meant to match timeline dates. Rather, these memorial stones are just a few signposts of the people, places, and activities culminating in eternally changed lives for Christ.

Stories of Impact

The 75-year history of the ministry of Officers’ Christian Fellowship could very well be summed up as God working through men and women desiring to make an eternal difference, who reach out in faith to invite someone to a small group Bible study, retreat, or workplace breakfast—and forever impact a life. Read stories and memories of those impacted by OCF.
