For several months, His Eminence Metropolitan Nicholas and his Chancellors, Fr. Teodor Petrutiu and Fr. Nick Kotsis, have been searching for someone to take the role of Metropolis Youth Director. That search is finally over!
Michael Hostetler, a seminarian from Lansing, MI, began working as our Youth Director on June 1st, 2023. He brings with him a wide range of experience including his studies at Holy Cross School of Theology, his time working at the Metropolis of Detroit Summer Camp in Rose City, and serving the Orthodox Christian Fellowship both at the local and national level.
Michael lives with his wife Allison in Worcester, Massachusetts and will be working remotely for the Metropolis of Detroit from there. He looks forward to attending our youth and young adult events and making visits to the parishes of our Metropolis.
May God grant him strength and joy in this new role!
