The Coptic Orthodox Diocese of the Southern United States under the auspice of His Grace Bishop Youssef presents: The “Three Holy Youth” (THY) Winter College Convention series!
The pursuit of this fellowship is to enflame in the hearts of our college youth the roots of our rich Coptic faith, history and dogma. Teaching the fundamentals of our Orthodox Christian faith through a theological mini-series enables us to be “…always ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you…” (1 Peter 3:15).
Three Holy Youth is proud to present: “Orthodox DNA”. “For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one.” (1 John 5:7)

College years can be a period of strong spiritual growth. Our beloved Church recognizes the strong pillars for our faith in our youth serving as bright shining stars to a world yearning for the hope that is presented in Christianity.
But our shining light is only as strong as our spiritual foundation and this can only start by increasing first in knowledge and virtue as St. Peter says “…But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 1:5-8)
