Today’s technology can make everything seem possible and has the power to reach across the globe.  The Digital Disciple Scholarship Program trains the next generation to use the tools before them, that most interact with on a daily basis.  OCN thanks the sponsors who assist with funding this program.  The purpose is to train our future ministry leaders to use multi-media resources as another tool in spreading the Gospel.  Students from both the College and Graduate School promote current issues related to the Orthodox Faith, Christian Persecution, and cover Orthodox News and events on campus and nationwide.
