The Orthodox Church in America’s Department of Youth, Young Adult and Campus Ministry will host the annual Pan-Orthodox Youth and Camp Workers’ Conference at Saint Seraphim Cathedral, Dallas, TX January 21-23, 2016.
According to Andrew Boyd, OCA Youth Director, the conference theme—“Feed My Sheep: Crisis, Trauma and Everyday Life”—will be addressed in the keynote address by Archpriest Steven Voytovich, Dean of Saint Tikhon’s Seminary. Several workshops also will be available on camp ministry, campus ministry, parish-based youth work, and working with young adults in military service.
“This is an annual collaboration of all the youth/camping ministries of the jurisdictions represented by the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of the USA, and we are blessed to host it this year,” commented Mr. Boyd. “Besides opportunities for continuing education, there will be time for fellowship, skill building, liturgical worship, and planning future Pan-Orthodox collaboration.”
Clergy and lay leaders in the areas of camping, youth, and campus ministry are encouraged to attend.
More information, including costs, schedule, registration, and lodging are available. Financial assistance may be available through the Peter the Aleut Grant Program.[subscribe2]
