For over 10 years, we have been partnering with local churches and pastors in Jamaica, to demonstrate the gospel in word and deed through community outreach initiatives, medical clinics and evangelism. We have also adopted a girl’s home in Montego Bay to where we help girls who have been abused know God’s healing and restorative power!
Venture to this Latin American, Caribbean country to share the greatest message of all with hundreds of people! The heart of this ministry is to participate in the long-term goal of reaching every neighborhood in this country by establishing “house churches”. You will be involved in God’s divine appointments as you work alongside local church partners to share the gospel to those who do not know Jesus.
Over the last four years One Community Church has adopted a small town called Las Salinas in the Dominican Republic. The people of Las Salinas are made up of Haitians and Dominicans who experience the crushing blow of extreme poverty daily. Most live without running water, bathrooms, electricity and some even go without food and shoes. The need is great!
We have partnered with local government leaders, community leaders and pastors to stop the poverty cycle and to show the love of Christ in tangible ways: build latrines, repair homes, put up street lights and improve sanitation. Come join us as we rebuild lives and reshape community!
What OCC Short-Term Mission Trip attendees are saying
“Asked how often they pray to God, most said every day. When preparing to close one of the sessions, one young lady asked if she could pray us out. It was such a touching prayer, it gave me chills to hear the earnestness and sincerity of a prayer of praise, thanksgiving and supplication. God is definitely at work in Granville Child Care Facility and it’s clear that they see and receive God’s love from the OCC Granville Mission Team.”
– Brenda Holmes
“This mission trip to Latin America was like nothing I could have imagined. I will never forget the love and compassion of the people I met. I felt welcomed in the homes I visited, the warm smiles, and the warmth of the people. To see the concern they had for their neighbor was surreal. I was invited in homes not as a stranger, but as a friend and I was very comfortable in the presence of people I didn’t know. I saw people loving and caring about each other. The people are so beautiful in my eyes.”
– Janice Coutain
“We started the camp Monday and by sometime Tuesday, God revealed to me that this week would be little about basketball, but more about pouring into these boys, showing them gentleness, patience and humility, while at the same time challenging them to be the best young men they could be – not really being better in basketball, but in fearing God, and in being stronger young men in their homes, schools and communities, making wise choices, thinking before acting, etc.”
– Coach Charles Williams
Advance God’s Kingdom With Us
We want to be a church that makes a difference in the world!
Our Global Impact Strategy focuses on two things: sharing the gospel and ministering to the poor.
As Christians we are called by Scripture to be Christ’s witnesses to the utter most parts of the earth (Acts 1:8) and we are compelled to show compassion to the poor (1 John 3:17).
As a church we have committed to furthering the spread of the gospel and caring for the poor in Caribbean and South East Asian countries. We know that we cannot do this unless we encourage and strengthen churches and leaders abroad.
We are blessed to be a blessing!
God has called each of us to make a difference in our neighborhoods and communities.
We want to be a church that matters to our community.
Come be amazed as you see how our good deeds will lead to goodwill…and goodwill
will create opportunities for the good news to spread!
You can serve as a Life Group or by yourself, with family or friends!
In Collin County we are tremendously blessed. Yet we know that there are significant needs in our community. We believe that the Church is the hope of the world. Therefore we have committed to working with our community partners in these 6 Areas of Need:

Fund OCC Outreach & Mission Work
God gives us good things we don’t deserve and could never earn, like grace and forgiveness. He gave the eternal gift, His son, for our sins (John 3:16) and when a follower of Christ freely and joyfully gives away their increase, whether it be money, possessions, time, or talents, they are imitating God.
You can make an eternal investment into the Kingdom of God by praying for our missionaries and by supporting them.
