Reaching Younger Orthodox Christians Online

Reaching Younger Orthodox Christians Online


Did you know that the US Census Bureau reports that American young people spend 11 hours per day in front of screens, much of it online?

With all this in mind, I sat down in the studio with two young people close to OCN’s ministry for a discussion about reaching younger Orthodox Christians online — and how OCN in particular is responding to a great need and touching lives for Christ.

Tune in to find out more, and to learn how you can help by participating in our “Share the Light Sunday” Campaign in 2015.
