The Department of Evangelization bears witness to the One, Holy Catholic, and Apostolic Church to all who ask, seek, and knock, while encouraging every Orthodox Christian actively to engage his or her missionary vocation.
The Mission Planting Handbook is a treasury of ideas and structure, and a basic roadmap for the establishing of an Orthodox Christian Mission Parish. Much of its content is timeless. Every parish in North America is encouraged to read and re-read the Handbook, in order to (re)nourish a missionary zeal at the heart of the parish.
The Stewardship Handbook is a remarkable resource to assist the Orthodox Christian in understanding the proper Biblical, Christian underpinnings of our use of Time, Talent, and Treasure to the Glory of God. If our Orthodox Church in America is going to thrive, it will do so only with a commitment in every aspect of our Church’s life to sound, biblical stewardship.
The Parish Ministries Resources Handbook is an Idea-book of every conceivable parish ministry, written by the Clergy and Faithful who have implemented these ideas successfully in local churches. There is no need to reinvent the wheel: this is the book of wheels! If you find absent a parish ministry with which you have found success and vibrancy, please contribute by contacting Chair Donna Karabin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
