Services offered by the Department of Internet Ministries
Since 1994, the Department of Internet Ministries has pioneered the use of the Internet, multimedia, and technology to share the truth of the Gospel and the love of Christ throughout the world. Through the generous support of Leadership 100, Internet Ministries empowers parishes, organizations, institutions, and all levels of the Orthodox Church to make use of current and emerging technologies for the proclamation of the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Consulting services are available for parishes and organizations of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America in need of customized graphic design and development for their websites. In addition to development, we are able to work with the parish or organization through the planning stages of a new website to ensure that the objectives of the website complement those of the organization.
The Department of Internet Ministries is honored to represent His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios and the Archdiocese on the executive committee of the Religious Alliance Against Pornography (RAAP). RAAP continues to work with the major US Wireless carriers to protect minors from the threat of adult content on mobile devices. In 2012, the Department of Internet Ministries and US Catholic Conference of Bishops partnered to develop a joint Internet and Mobile Safety guide for parents. The focus of the guide will be using technology appropriately and safely through the eyes of faith, covering topics such as safety with surfing the Internet, cell phones, social media, search engines, cyber bullying, and other relevant topics parents often face.
Staff from the Department of Internet Ministries travel nationally to conduct lectures and presentations on a variety of topics related to the Church’s use of technology and how parishes can use modern technologies effectively as tools for evangelism and outreach.
