Prepare to serve
Our mission is to prepare the next generation of servants for the Church, by equipping them with a strong foundation in the Orthodox Faith. We also incorporate practical service opportunities as a group within and outside of the Church community.
But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear

goal is to walk with them in their spiritual journey and help them understand their Orthodox faith. Fellowship is a key tenant in our mission. The youth are encouraged to develop relationships with each other in addition to the servants.
Our goal is to share the message of God and grow in our relationships with Him. We also create a welcoming atmosphere of unity, acceptance and belonging for university and college youth.
