About OCMA

Introducing the Orthodox Christian Men’s Association (OCMA):

OCMA is a nonprofit Orthodox brotherhood dedicated to helping men become better men together in Christ, and proclaiming the Orthodox faith to America. Heal men, and you heal families, communities, and the nation.

OCMA was founded in 2021 by Joshua “Maestro” Jobst. His vision is a laymen-led, pan-Orthodox brotherhood and men’s ministry with the blessing and support of local bishops, priests, and deacons.

OCMA calls men to stand up and be men; to have the courage to pick up our cross daily and follow Christ. We are proactive in supporting clergy and serving Christ faithfully in our Orthodox parishes, communities, and in the world.

OCMA teaches four pillars of manhood: Pray, Protect, Provide, Preside, modeling the four virtues: Justice, Courage, Temperance, and Wisdom (Wisdom 8:7), and the four Gospels (with symbols): Matthew (Man), Mark (Lion), Luke (Ox), John (Eagle).

OCMA follows and fosters the Holy Rule of St. Benedict as Orthodox oblates, i.e., offering ourselves as living sacrifices to God; not being conformed to this world, but being transformed into the image and likeness of Christ. (Romans 12:1-2)

OCMA accomplishes this through education on Orthodox manhood, ministry, mission, music, martial arts, motorcycle riding, meetings, programs, pilgrimages, rallies, and other charitable services that promote and support Orthodox brotherhood, camaraderie, lay leadership, body-soul-spirit health, growth, renewal, and evangelical witness.

OCMA is the first level of brotherhood. Higher levels to aspire to include the Orthodox Motorcycle Association (OMA) and the Dead Orthodox Motocycle Riding Club (DOC). This one trinity brotherhood in three levels we call: DOCOMA.

OCMA Mottos: Ora et labora (pray and work); Patron Saint: St. Benedict; Iron sharpens iron (Prov. 27:17). Unmercenary service and security; My Brother Before Me / Men Becoming Better Men (MBBM); I aM My Brother’s Keeper (IMMBK); Brothers To The End/Eschaton (BTTE).

Join us today and let’s become better men together.

AVE CHRISTUS REX! (Hail Christ the King!)
