St Augustine, FL (OCN / MW Communications) - St. Augustine, FL – His Beatitude, Metropolitan JONAH together with His Beatitude Archbishop Anastasios, Primate of the Orthodox Church in Albania and His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios of the Greek Orthodox Archdioces of America, and several hundred Orthodox Christian faithful from throughout the country and as far away as Albania and Romania were in St. Augustine, Florida this past week for the dedication of the new Archbishop Anastasios and Archbishop Demetrios Missionary Training and Administrative Building of the Orthodox Christian Mission Center (OCMC).

This new facility will serve as the international missions headquarters for North America’s estimated 1.5 million Orthodox Christians.

Also participating are current and former OCMC missionaries who are serving or have served in various worldwide locations; mission team volunteers; members of the OCMC board of directors; benefactors; staff; and other Orthodox clergy and laity.

In response to Christ's final command to "make disciples of all nations," the OCMC is dedicated to helping the Church realize its missionary vision. In addition to sending Missionaries and Mission Team volunteers, the OCMC subsidizes the salaries of over 350 indigenous clergy in 18 mission countries. It helps train new church leaders by supporting seven seminaries around the world, and it funds numerous ministry and philanthropic projects of the Church abroad. In the new Missionary Training and Administration Building, these programs will be able to work toward sharing the Gospel of Christ in more areas around the world in the years to come.
