This course considers the various ministries in which participating students will eventually be engaged within the life of the Church. We will examine the current scope of youth ministry efforts across parishes within the canonical Orthodox jurisdictions in North America, with a special emphasis on certain youth programs/ministries that exist on the parish, metropolis (diocesan) and archdiocesan levels. Source documents and practices of Orthodox Youth Ministry across North America will be examined, as will the wide range of issues confronting Orthodox Youth.
