Today we're excited to announce that registration for Carpathian Mountain Outreach 2019 is now open! In past years, CMO has begun in mid-July, but this year, due to some unusual scheduling needs, we're moving things up a bit with a start date of June 13.

Before we dive into the details of the 2019 project, I'd like to bring back a classic quote from CMO alumni Bryan Shufelt:

How can you summarize CMO 2006? In one word: life-changing. … I would highly recommend CMO to all young men who are wanting to be men of God. Not just those who are interested in foreign missions, but even those who are going to stay in the States for the rest of their lives. CMO 2006 changed my perspective. I now understand the world-wide need for the Gospel. I have met people I would have never met before, who challenged me in my beliefs. They forced me to reevaluate; to decide what I believe and why I believe it; to research the Bible to prove it, not rely on faulty human reasoning. CMO 2006 was an amazing experience for me and I pray that the lessons I have learned will never fall away.

It's Your Turn

Since CMO's inception in 2006, dozens of young men have stepped up to the front line in Western Ukraine, joining us to hand out tracts, show films, assist local churches, study language, and learn what it really means to be a missionary. Young man, now it's your turn. Make this the year that you come to CMO and obey God's call to preach the Gospel to all nations!
