Our mission strives to be a culturally-relevant Orthodox Christian community, that ministers to and shares the traditions of Christ’s undivided and apostolic Church with the greater Gainesville, Florida region, and to all the nations (Mat 28:19-20). Our sponsoring parish is St Justin the Martyr Orthodox Church in Jacksonville, FL.
Lay ministry for Orthodox Christians is considered an essential part of living a sacramental life, which is often likened to a lifelong spiritual journey or pilgrimage. Because we are still relatively few in number, our collective ministry is primarily one of prayer and discipleship. However, here are a few of the well-established ministries that we have had the individual privilege of supporting.
