Calling all youth and youth volunteers! - 04/06/15

Why are we having a youth program?

In the past, the OCA Department of Youth and Young Adult in conjunction with the Department of Christian Education was very successful in reaching hundreds of OCA youth and young adults at the All American Councils. At the height of this ministry run by Fr. Michael Anderson and with the blessing of the OCA bishops, there were nearly 400 youth participating. We are bringing back the program in an attempt to reach out to our youth and help them to grow in the church and meet other Orthodox Christians from across the OCA. We hope that it is successful.
