ORTHODOX CHRISTIAN NETWORK IS A NON-PROFIT ORTHODOX ORGANIZATION THAT WAS COMMISSIONED TO COMFORT, INSPIRE, AND INFORM ORTHODOX CHRISTIANS AND SEEKERS AROUND THE WORLD USING MEDIA MINISTRY.
To strengthen Orthodox Christian communities and to share the timeless faith of Orthodoxy with the contemporary world through modern media: radio, the Internet, podcasts, DVDs, television and more.
To inspire the Orthodox everywhere, nurture our children in the faith, welcome back those who have lapsed, and with the joyful, Christ-centered message of the Church reach out to, invite and lovingly welcome,all those outside our Orthodox Christian family, making them our own.
The Orthodox Christian Network is an official agency of the Assembly of Bishops, originally 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. “Come Receive the Light,” OCN’s flagship program hosted by Fr. Christopher Metropulos, is the only nationally syndicated Orthodox Christian radio broadcast. OCN works in direct collaboration with sister Assembly agencies (e.g., IOCC, 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.
