I am interested in what pan-Orthodox ministries there are out there.
I know of very few TRULY pan-Orthodox ministries—those ministries that are incorporated as a pan-Orthodox entity or, at least, have a board that is truly pan-Orthodox. Most ministries that we might consider to be pan-Orthodox (at least on the local level) are really more (what I would call) “cooperative ministries.” They are spearheaded by a particular parish with some help from the surrounding parishes.
While this is laudable, I don’t consider them to be a truly pan-Orthodox in the sense that they are attached to a particular parish within a particular diocese. (This is not to say that a truly pan-Orthodox ministry should not have a particular ecclesiastical affiliation.) But, most ministries that are attached to a particular jurisdiction/diocese/parish can usually count on support from within that particular setting.
The problem that those pan-Orthodox ministries have that are not anchored in a particular jurisdiction/diocese/parish (e.g. Project Mexico, FOCUS, Holy Trinity Nursing and Rehabilitation Center (Worcester, MA), The St. Nina Quarterly) is that it is much harder to secure funding; everyone just gives to their own. Because of this, they are a lot harder to sustain over time.
So, my question is what other “truly” pan-Orthodox ministries are out there and how do they/you get your funding?
