Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops
The Orthodox Christian Network is an official agency of the Assembly of Bishops. In 1995 OCN was founded by Fr. Chris Metropulos. Orthodox Christian Network is commissioned by SCOBA to create a national, sustainable, and effective media witness for Orthodox Christianity throughout North America. In a constantly changing media landscape, OCN delivers positive, relevant Orthodox content via multiple delivery platforms, reaching today’s internet users via broadcast, podcast, video, blogging, and webinar content. OCN works in direct collaboration with sister Assembly agencies and organizations (e.g., IOCC, OCMAPR, OCMC, OCF, OCPM), as well as with various Orthodox Christian jurisdictions and pan-Orthodox, para-church organizations. Our goal is to engage the broader culture of North America with Orthodox Christianity’s rich theological, spiritual, and moral heritage, and to thereby strengthen the Orthodox Church’s witness and contribution to the culture in which we live.
