Ozark Mission Project

Little Rock, AR

We bring church youth groups to camp sites around Arkansas where they, in turn, engage in the surrounding communities. In the spirit of Christ, these youth and adults serve individuals and families, our neighbors, who are in need of minor construction and yard work. In addition to the physical service projects, we strive to meet social and emotional needs by spending part of our time visiting, sharing lunch and, if the neighbor so chooses, a devotional. We make no demand of race, age, income or religion in the selection of our neighbors.

Ozark Mission Project (OMP) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit mission of the Arkansas Area United Methodist Church, organized for ministry to persons in need in response to Jesus Christ’s call to servant hood.

Our vision is to be a Christ-led mission opportunity offering a diverse cultural experience that equips youth to make a global difference

Today OMP hosts 12 camps each summer, serving all four corners of Arkansas. Over 1,000 youth and young adults will be a part of OMP this year.
