"Effective Christian Ministry" Cohort Director Hired

New York, NY – The Department of Youth and Young Adult Ministries of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America (Y2AM) is excited to announce the hiring of a new “Effective Christian Ministry” Cohort Director. 

Effective Christian Ministry is a cutting-edge online ministry training program launched in January 2020. To date, over 700 students have registered. Feedback has been consistently outstanding from both novice and experienced ministry leaders (lay and ordained).

The new “Effective Christian Ministry” Cohort Program will give hundreds of ministry workers an opportunity to learn during a guided nine-month experience in a supportive setting. They will develop important skills and develop a concrete, multi-year plan to develop more effective ministry in their communities.

Dr. Presbytera Athanasia Mellos Kostakis will serve as the “Effective Christian Ministry” Cohort Director. She is an established ministry leader with extensive experience in youth and young adult ministry. She holds a Masters of Divinity from Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology (2007), a Master of Social Work from Boston University (2013), and Doctor of Ministry from Boston University (2018). She is also a Licensed Master Social Worker and has served as a Young Adult Mentor for the Telos Project. 

Registration for the Cohort Program will open this summer.
