Reimagining Orthodox Campus Ministry
Last fall (2022), we reached a new and exciting milestone in our organization’s history with the launch of our Campus Missionary Initiative, which hires, trains, and assigns full-time staff to college campuses. These campus-based professionals will oversee regular scripture studies, student mentorship, fellowship & service programs, and campus outreach━all designed to keep students more richly connected to Christ.
Texas A&M University was selected as our pilot location. In just a few months, the group size doubled and has attracted 14 catechumens and inquirers. To build on this success, we are actively pursuing a second campus location for fall 2023 and intend to scale the program to dozens of campuses over the next several years.
