One Church Ministries (OCM) is the name we have designated for the apostolic sphere of ministry which extends across all of the churches we serve. It exists to provide the care to equip local churches through Ephesians 4 ministries.
Equipping the Saints
OCM is not the name of an organization in the traditional sense of the word, rather it describes the work and mission being carried out by the apostolic team as they build relationally with local churches. That mission is singularly focused on “equipping the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ” (Eph. 4:11-13).
Ephesians 4 Ministries
We believe in the essentiality of the Christ-given ministries of of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers. This ministry is led by John Lalgee whom we recognize as an apostle among us. He is joined by a team of other leaders who have been acknowledged as gifted Ephesians 4 ministries to the Church.
Furthering His Kingdom
It is our passion to see this description of the ministry of Jesus continue to be fulfilled through his church in our day, which is why we partner with local and global ministries that are expanding the Kingdom of God.
John Lalgee is originally from the northwest of England. In 1984 at the age of 19, he submitted his life to Jesus Christ, and over the following nine years served in many areas of leadership in churches in the UK.
