Good, sound, and reliable Orthodox Christian adult staff members make the program possible.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Staff members must be adults of legal adult age who are Orthodox Christians in &ldquo;good standing.&rdquo; &ldquo;Good standing&rdquo; means that they will be able to be endorsed, without reservations, by their Orthodox Christian parish priest/father confessor, as being suitable adult persons to be entrusted with the care, supervision and guidance of young people.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>If you know of any person who is willing, able and appropriate to serve as a Youth Rally volunteer staff member, please ask them to contact me at their earliest convenience.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Again, we will&nbsp;<strong>NOT</strong>&nbsp;run Youth Rally unless we have adequate and appropriate staffing.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><em>[NOTE: Our outreach efforts have including reaching out to the parishes and institutions of our Diocese of New England, to Saint Tikhon&rsquo;s and Saint Vladimir&rsquo;s Seminaries, and to the national Orthodox Christian Fellowship (OCF&nbsp;is the official campus ministry arm of SCOBA). We have also reached out to our Orthodox Christian family members, friends and acquaintances all across the country. In past years, we have been able to build a staff this way.

The "Bishop's Circle" donors ($500 or more) also are very crucial in meeting the goals of ONE Stewards and in 2014 there were three new donors to this select group. This past year also included a new category of "anonymous" donations totaling over $3000 to ONE Stewards. Show your support of our diocesan Youth by sponsoring a "rallyer" through ONE Stewards. In addition our diocesan Seminarians, our diocesan Missions, and our diocesan Charity donations are supported by your "Giving Above and Beyond" to ONE Stewards.
