The Department of Stewardship, Outreach, and Evangelism consists of the following:


Our mission is to provide parish leadership with practical tools and training to engage active and inactive members, inquirers and those unaware of Orthodox Christianity personally in order that they learn more about the faith and ministries of the Greek Orthodox Church, leading them to become fully committed members of the Body of Christ, actively participating in and supporting the ministries of the local parish, the Metropolis and the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. Efforts are made to coordinate programs and initiatives with other departments and organizations of the Archdiocese.
