“Keeping our College Students Connected to the Church”
OCF Opens Search For North American Chaplain
Brookline, MA – May 2, 2012 - Orthodox
Christian Fellowship (OCF) announced today that applications are being received
for the position of North American Chaplain. The position is being increased to
half-time, and will be held by an Orthodox clergyman who will also have the
ability to continue to serve a parish or other ministry.
Nasser, OCF’s current North American Chaplain, shared his thoughts on this
development: “With OCF’s new leadership and with a fast-growing awareness among
parents and clergy of how vital ministry to our students really is, I couldn’t
be happier that the next North American Chaplain have more time to be dedicated
to this great work.”
OCF is currently
restructuring to better guide and support the hundreds of OCF chapters spread
out across North America. The new North American Chaplain will work across all
Orthodox jurisdictions, providing resources and assistance to the chaplains who
work directly with the students on campus.
