OCF Announces New North American OCF Chaplain
Fishers, IN - September 7, 2010
Orthodox Christian Fellowship announced the appointment of Fr. Michael Nasser as its new North American OCF Chaplain. Fr. Michael currently serves as the pastor at Holy Apostles Orthodox Mission in Bowling Green, KY, having recently completed three years serving the community of St. Innocent Orphanage in Tijuana, Mexico with his wife Vicky and their three children. Fr. Michael is no stranger to OCF, having participated in the reestablishment of the inter-Orthodox campus ministry effort 10 years ago. He has worked in the field of youth ministry for over 20 years, including serving as the Camp Director of the Antiochian Village from 1997-2006. After studies at St. Vladimir's Seminary, Fr. Michael received his M.Div. degree from Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology in 1993, and recently returned to complete his studies for the Master of Theology, with a focus on Youth Ministry and Missions. Fr. Michael, who was a classmate with OCF Board Chairman, Fr. Mark Leondis at Holy Cross said, "I'm really looking forward to working with Fr. Mark and the staff to help develop our network of regional and local chaplains, who are vital in our effort to reach our Orthodox students at such a crucial time in their lives." Fr. Michael's work will focus on facilitating the sharing of resources among the chaplains at the hundreds of OCF chapters across North America. Fr. Mark said that, "I'm thankful to have Fr. Michael back as part of our team. His knowledge and experience in the field of Youth Ministry, along with his dedication to seeing our young people maintain and grow in their faith will be a huge blessing as OCF enters this next phase of growth."
