Youth Ministry Team

Archdiocese Youth Ministry Team

The Youth and Young Adult Ministry Team of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America includes the Directors of each Metropolis Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministries, along with the Archdiocese Department of Youth and Young Adult Ministries. We help work towards the vision of our Archbishop and the Holy Synod (each Metropolitan Hierarch) to make the youth active participants in their Orthodox faith. On the National level, the team meets twice a year to share ideas, discuss pertinent youth ministry information, and assist in setting goals for various projects of the National Department. On the local level, the team assists parishes within their Metropolis to create and sustain youth and young adult ministry programs.
