Encountering Orthodox Christianity for the First Time

There’s a lot to like in this short YouTube video.

It’s produced by SoulPancake, a company founded by actor Rainn Wilson (who plays Dwight on the hit US version of “The Office”). SoulPancake’s purpose is to use media to help people from all walks of life discuss and question what it means to be human—to wrestle with the spiritual, philosophical, and creative journey that is life.

In this episode, Zach, a young man with some Greek ancestry, visits a Greek Orthodox Church for the very first time — and is surprised and inspired by what he finds.

Have you or someone you introduced to Orthodoxy ever had a similar experience?

P.S. Special props to St. Sophia Cathedral for participating in the series, and for cultivating an obviously effective outreach to young people in the Los Angeles area.

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.

Rev. Dr. Christopher Metropulos, Orthodox Christian Network Executive Director
