As Youth Workers we often times don’t know where to look for new ideas,
programming, or personal rejuvenation in our ministry. We hope that this
page provides you with resources to aid in all of those areas.
Young Adult Outreach
It is a vital role of our ministry to maintain outreach to our young
adults. Studies now show that teen adolescence is
extending into the early 20’s of our young people. We need to
prepare to aid them in their journey as Young Orthodox
Christian Adults. Click here for more information concerning this
topic. Read the articles on Young Adult Outreach from the Greek

A Mission Statement for Youth Workers
St. John Chrysosotom, Homily on Ephesians 6:1-4
Let us raise our children in such a way that they can face any trouble,
and not be surprised when difficulties come; let us bring them up in the
discipline and instruction of the Lord... When we teach our children to
be good, to be gentle, to be forgiving, to be generous to love their
fellow men, to regard this present age as nothing, we instill virtue in
their souls, and reveal the image of God within them. This, then, is our
task: to educate both ourselves and our children in godliness; otherwise
what answer will we have before Christ's judgment seat?
