Like many, we were hard hit by COVID. We are at work rebuilding our 3 Dojos while also developing our OMMA Online Academy which will allow us to reach people with our Christ-centered martial arts program anywhere!
Our Mission at On Mission Martial Arts (OMMA) is "To change lives for God's glory, using Christ-centered martial arts." Our foundational Scripture is from the book of First Corinthians, chapter 10, verse 31 - "So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God." If it's worth doing, do it for His glory.
At OMMA, we are about so much more than martial arts skills, although we seek to do that with excellence! However, we are also about Mission and Service to those both near and far, in both word and deed. We are about facing our fears, defeating distraction and engaging with others to overcome complacency. We seek to develop Biblical based leaders and servant warriors.
Our desire is to create an affordable, family-friendly, God-honoring environment where we can love one another, serve one another, serve WITH one another, encourage one another, pray for one another and, of course, TRAIN with one another. :)
As a 501c3, not-for-profit organization, we rely on both the dues from our members as well as the generous contributions from those on our ministry partnership team to accomplish our goals and do so with excellence.
Some specific areas that this campaign giving will be directed to:
1. Allow us to continue to pay our Certified OMMA Black Belt instructors who lead our schools, even with the temporary downturn from COVID.
2. Allow us to get current and stay current with our Dojo rent obligations so we are not required to cut back on classes or close any Dojos.
3. Allow us the capacity to complete our OMMA Online Academy in 2021. This would be a program people anywhere with Internet could train with OMMA, earn belt ranks and learn everything they would learn training in one of our physical dojos, but at home, at their own pace. It would include the martial arts, fitness, wellness as well as our proprietary Spiritual Fitness curriculum, and more.
4. Allow us to launch our "OMMA Instructor Boot Camp," an intensive, immersive training that would allow us to move a person much more quickly through their Martial Arts, Teaching, Leadership, Spiritual Growth and other requirements to become a Certified OMMA Instructor. Our growth will be greatly facilitated once we can more quickly and effectively develop excellent instructors!
5. Support our 2021 Group Service Projects in support of Operation Christmas Child, Word on the Street Homeless Ministries, Voice of the Martyrs and others, allowing us to make an impact for Christ to those in our communities and around the world.
6. Get us to a position where we can once again consider opening our 3rd physical Dojo in the Central Florida area. We were poised to do this just before the pandemic hit. We are praying the Lord will "restore what the locusts have eaten," and hope He might use you as one of His vessels of blessing to OMMA and those we impact.
Thank you for your prayerful consideration!
Serving Him with you,
Marco Fiorentino, Founder, Senior Instructor
