Finding Orthodoxy in High School

On Journeys to Orthodoxy, we meet Andrew Smith, a convert in Australia, who talks about coming from a Godless home to the Orthodox Faith at age 16. Although Andrew’s parents were atheists, they allowed him to make his own decisions. Andrew discovered Orthodoxy when searching for God as a teen. In the Australian public school system, they taught religion classes, and Orthodoxy was one of them. Andrew dived in and went to his first Orthodox service on the Gold Coast at St. Anne Greek Orthodox Church. After visiting the Church and studying the faith, Andrew was brought into the Church one day before he graduated High School.

Greetings in the Lord!

With the support of people like you, the Orthodox Christian Network is making a measurable difference in reaching the younger generations. Here are just a few facts about our ministry’s success:

The Orthodox Christian Network is the largest Orthodox Internet presence in the world—by far! Our programs are shared with 500,000 OCN Facebook fans every day. 74% of them are 35 or younger. 38% are 24 or younger.

Help us take advantage of this tremendous success and expand our ministry over the summer. With one week left, we’ve almost reached our Summer Fundraising Goal! But we need your support TODAY to reach $15,000

Donate to our 10 Cent A Day Campaign and your gift will go toward reaching 10 new people around the world. 100% of your donation goes to mission, with 0% to overhead.

On behalf of all of the Orthodox Christian Network, we thank you for 20 years of support for our beloved ministry.
