Shaped by a life of service to Christ’s Church, Fr. Christopher has dedicated himself to using all the tools God has placed at his disposal to spread the light of Orthodoxy across America. As Founding Father and host of the Orthodox Christian Network (OCN) and the “Come Receive The Light” national Orthodox Christian radio program, he shepherds a dynamic and rapidly expanding ministry bringing joy, hope, and salvation in Jesus Christ to millions of listeners on Internet and land-based radio around the world in more than 130 countries. Fr. Christopher is the former President of Hellenic College Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology and Parish Priest of Saint Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.
In celebration of the Three Hierarchs, we went back into our archives to find a conversation between Fr. Chris Metropulos, currently the President of Hellenic College Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology, and Fr. Deacon Irenaios Anderson, Associate Dean of Academics and Instructor of Old Testament for Saint Herman Theological Seminary, in Kodiak, Alaska. Listen as they discuss the prophet’s roles in revealing Christ, as the three theologians did centuries ago.
But first, we have a conversation with Bryce Buffenbarger, one of our Digital Disciples, and musician Justin Marler. Justin has an album of traditional gospel hymns converted into high-energy punk music. Listen as he shares his story on how he is using music to raise awareness and funds for the displaced Syrians through his new album Hymns for the Apocalypse.
