Outreach Opportunities in the Ohio Mission Region

Want to help reach out to our communities in Ohio and beyond?

This page lists some of the outreach efforts of our churches in Ohio. If you have an idea and would like other churches in Ohio to participate with you in a larger outreach effort, email the webmaster at info@thenalcohio.org and it will be posted here.

Let's make use of the blessing of a large body of believers to reveal Christ to Ohio communities as well as to others around the world!

Malawi Orphan Care Project

First English Lutheran in Mansfield started their outreach to the Kanyenyeva Orphan Care Ministry in Malawi in 2005 and have built a relationship with them over the years that ensued. Now they support a local non-profit ministry based at FELC known as the Malawi Orphan Care Project. Members of several NALC churches in Ohio, Wisconsin and Canada have joined in supporting the efforts of MOCP and some members even travelled with MOCP leaders to Malawi in 2014. Those who did had life changing experiences.

If you are intereted in learning more about what FELC is doing through MOCP, visit their web page at http://malawiorphancareproject.org/.
