Charita Stavrou and James Hargave Commissioned as OCMC Missionaries

After months of training, planning, and support team building, OCMC Missionary Candidates Charita Stavrou and James Hargrave were commissioned as OCMC Missionaries. Charita was commissioned at the Orthodox Christian Mission Center in St. Augustine, Florida on March 10, 2010; and James was commissioned at St. Elizabeth Greek Orthodox Church in Gainesville, Forida on March 14, 2010.

Charita and James will serve as long-term missionaries in Tanzania at the request and with the blessing of His Eminence Jeronymos, Metropolitan of Mwanza. Charita’s work will focus on evangelism and ministering to Tazanian women through a sewing project that she has helped to facilitate. James will be assisting His Eminence with archdiocesan communications, organization, and administration, after intense language and cultural training in his first few months of his two-year missionary term.

Charita is a veteran of several OCMC Mission Teams to the region. James, the son of Protestant missionaries, grew up in Kenya – Tanzania’s East African neighbor. Between the two of them, they bring a wealth of experience and a deep desire to share Christ with the people of Tanzania.

Please continue to pray for Charita and James as they prepare to depart for Tanzania. To support their efforts or for more information about OCMC Missionaries or the Orthodox Christian Mission Center, please call 1-877-GO-FORTH, or log onto http://www.ocmc.org.

The Orthodox Christian Mission Center (OCMC) is the official missions agency of the Standing Conference of Canonical Orthodox Bishops in the Americas (SCOBA) dedicated to fulfilling Christ’s last command to make disciples of all nations.
