OCF Student Participates in the 10th Assembly of the World Council of Churches in South Korea
Last October, Laney Wagoner got a call from Metropolitan PHILIP saying that he had recommended her as a youth delegate from the United States to potentially be on delegation for the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Antioch and All the East. Patriarch IGNATIUS and the Holy Senate met to decide who would be on delegation on behalf of our Patriarchate. When it was somewhat decided, but not official yet, (May His Memory Be Eternal) Patriarch IGNATIUS passed away. Patriarch JOHN was elected and delegation was not officially set in stone until May. Laney is presently on delegation as a youth delegate to the World Council of Churches. The 10th annual Assembly and is being held in Busan, South Korea. Not only will Laney represent Teen SOYO, but also the Fellowship of St. John the Divine. Additionally, she received an email from the General Secretary of the World Council of Churches saying that she has been selected to be on the Business Committee, which is focused on the leadership aspect of the assembly and agenda. Laney says, “It is such a blessing and an honor to have been selected on such an important committee.”
Laney has been extremely active in Teen SOYO. She was DOWAMA Teen SOYO Secretary in 2009-2010, and DOWAMA Teen SOYO President in 2010-2011. In 2010-2011, she was also on NAC SOYO board as Vice President. In 2011-2012 and 2012-2013, she was NAC SOYO President. She is also very involved with the YES Program, going on and leading multiple trips throughout the USA. She attended the first YES Leadership Training in Los Angeles in July 2012, and this year was privileged with the opportunity to be a leader at the YES Leadership Training in Pittsburgh. Currently, she is a junior at Oklahoma City University and in her first semester of nursing school. She is also actively trying to create an OCF chapter for the Oklahoma City metro area.
