The Association is founded on the initiative of the Non-Profit Civil Company ‘Saint Maxim the Greek Institute for the Research, Preservation and Promotion of Spiritual and Cultural Traditions’ (www.stmaximthegreek.org), following the two International Conferences on Digital Media and Orthodox Pastoral Care which were held in Athens in May 2015 (www.dmopc15.com) and in Kolymbari, Hania, in June 2018 (www.dmopc18.com). Both conferences where organised under the High Auspicies of His All Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew.
We are expanding our DMOPC community to now accept new Regular , Associate or Student Members from around the world. Become a new member in the International Association of Digital Media and Orthodox Pastoral Care DMOPC.
What We Do:
Link publishers who are active world-wide in the production of Christian Orthodox content on the Internet (active web pages, tablet or smartphone apps, video documentaries, films etc) as owners or administrators. Link specialist scientists, academics and everyday laborers of the divine word in a distinctive presence in the digital realm.
How We Help:
Coordinating the efforts of Orthodox digital media towards a more effective articulation of the Gospel word for the glory of God among users of this media, as well as making a common, coordinated effort to spread the values of the Orthodox Christian tradition towards all people of good will.
Initial Regular and Associate Members accordingly are defined as those speakers at the 1st (www.dmopc15.com) 2nd (www.dmopc18.com) and 3rd International Conference of Digital Media and Orthodox Pastoral Care (www.dmopc20.com -soon to be online) .
As you will notice, in the membership form we have included an option to join a Special Interest Group (SIG). The SIGs will be the real “nucleus” of our Association. We invite you to join us and become an “ambassador” of our Association in your own community, promote and share the spirit of our efforts in order to expand our DMOPC members.
