IOCC- Share the Light of Christ this Christmas



Inspired by the IOCC, the Orthodox Christian Network will be featuring the outstanding charitable, benevolent and philanthropic outreach of this organization who, in the spirit of Christ’s love, offers emergency relief and development programs to those in need worldwide, without discrimination, and strengthens the capacity of the Orthodox Church to so respond.  Please join us in raising awareness for their countless acts of kindness, and we invite you to learn more about the IOCC.

The Orthodox Christian Network (OCN) is an official agency of the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops. OCN offers videos, podcasts, blogs and music, to enhance Orthodox Christian life. We also report on news events in the Orthodox Church and produce This Week in Orthodoxy, a weekly news video with stories and issues of interest to Orthodox Christians around the world.

Digital Disciple Scholars Program.  The Orthodox Christian Network has established the Digital Disciple Scholars Program on the campus of Hellenic College Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology.  The purpose is to train our ministry leaders to use multi-media resources to spread the Gospel.  Students promote current issues related to the Orthodox Faith, Christian Persecution, and cover Orthodox News and events on campus.


Much like public radio, the Orthodox Christian Network relies on the support of our listeners.  Anonymous donors have issued a $20,000 matching challenge in honor of OCN’s 20th Anniversary! For every $1 you give, $2 will be donated! You can send your gift by direct mail, over the phone, or on our website.

Your gift during our annual End of the Year Appeal will ensure that OCN may continue to offer free, high-quality, theological media. 

Be on the lookout for our new mobile app, “Spark”, to be launched in the near future. The app will raise awareness of Christian persecution worldwide and provide you and millions of Orthodox with different ways to act.
