OC Ministries in the Americas

One Challenge supports a vast array of ministries throughout North America with OC field workers and partners in groups such as OC’s U.S. Mobilization Center, Near Frontiers, Missional Challenge, Outreach Canada, and Sepal USA.

OC takes the name of Sepal throughout Latin America and beyond; Sepal translates as “servindo aos pastores e lideres” (Serving Pastors and Leaders). Sepal is made up of members from different nationalities and church backgrounds who share a common goal – to serve the body of Christ to make disciples of all nations.
