This Christmas Say YES!

Last Christmas season, we asked you to “Rethink Christmas” to see how it might be different if we focused on giving sacrificially. As always, you responded generously. This year, we have again selected eight special ministries to feature. Please prayerfully consider how you might say YES this Christmas. YES to Jesus, the baby born in Bethlehem, as Deliverer and King … YES to giving the opportunity to as many as possible to hear, understand, and believe the Good News of that King … And YES to one of our eight featured Christmas projects.

  • English Camps in Europe

    Europe can be a difficult place for evangelism. However, English camps have proven to be fruitful for evangelistic ministry. In fact, 30% of those who attend a camp accept Christ. For many European university students, their only experience with Christianity has been an Easter visit to an Orthodox cathedral. English camps give them an opportunity to meet Christians with a vibrant relationship with Jesus. During the camp, many begin to see that God is relevant and can make a difference in their lives. A gift of just $50 will help cover a portion of the cost for a student to attend an evangelistic English camp in Europe.

  • Missionary Kid Scholarship Fund

    Every year, 10-15 young adults serve as interns at One Mission Society. These interns fill a variety of roles across OMS, bringing experience, enthusiasm, and new perspectives to their teams. Interns leave a lasting impact on OMS and on ministry around the world, and they walk away with a deeper engagement in missions and a vision for how they can be a part of furthering Christ’s kingdom around the world.
