From the Executive Director/CEO

We rejoice in God’s provision and remain exceedingly hopeful for our future!

Against the backdrop of a fallen world and an increasingly secular culture, Officers’ Christian Fellowship is thriving. God continues to bless this ministry in countless ways. From excited young service members and brand new believers to seasoned retirees and lifelong followers of Jesus; from battlefield Bible studies to Chapel sanctuaries; throughout military society and out into the world, this Fellowship continues to advance God’s Kingdom for His glory.

The exercise of biblical leadership describes what Christian officers do through the integration of faith and profession. We teach military leaders how to combine religious and professional aspects of their lives into one integral whole, to meet their military obligations in a manner consistent with their Christian value system. People determine what they think about God by what they see in His followers, so it emboldens us to live out our faith in ways that honor Him with our lifestyle, words, relationships, social awareness, service and the strength of our commitments.

Financially, OCF ended fiscal year 2020 (1 June 2019 – 31 May 2020) in a strong position despite the challenges of COVID-19.  This is a testimony to the faithfulness of God and the generosity of our donors. Thank you for partnering with us in “Building Christian military leaders, families, fellowships…for a lifetime!”

Col Scott C. Fisher, USAF (Ret.)

The body of OCF carries the hope of Jesus Christ into the military society through its members, programs, and small group fellowships.

Highlights from 2019-2020

Conference Centers

Spring Canyon in Buena Vista, CO and White Sulphur Springs in Manns Choice, PA combined for approximately 20,770 camper days from June 2019 – May 2020. These centers are two of OCF’s primary training grounds for those who live, work, and minister in the military society.

Academies & ROTC

OCF has staff couples located near each of the four military academies where they embolden the cadets and midshipmen to know what it is to be a Christ follower through biblical leader development, Bible study, discipleship, conferences, retreats and mission trips. While all open their homes for training, counsel, and hospitality, OCF owns properties near the U.S. Military, U.S. Naval, and U.S. Coast Guard Academies allowing an extraordinary level of hospitality to cadets, midshipmen and their families. OCF currently hosts five ROTC regional conferences each year with plans to expand to other major ROTC locations.

Field Ministries

OCF has staff couples assigned to regional centers who interact with and give guidance to the volunteer lay leaders in the United States and in other countries, forge relationships with local churches, and provide support to the chaplaincy. Staff couples help these leaders engage in their faith with those around them by establishing a variety of programs in the area from small group fellowships and training conferences, to making contacts within the area and supporting chaplains and pastors.
