Parish Mentoring and Education

In addition to financial support for mission parishes, and those in need of revitalization, Share the Faith provides a mentoring and education program for supported parish councils. Especially at the mission level, many parish councils are new to Orthodoxy and are frequently unsure how to effectively evangelize.

Here are some of the topics we explore with our supported parishes that help the servants of God effectively start and run a mission or revitalize an older parish.

1)  So you want to start a New Mission Orthodox Church?
2)  Effective Ideas for the Greeting of Newcomers
3)  How to Evangelize for Church Growth

We also provide Q&A sessions and on-request mentoring for parish councils and parish priests who need assistance, as well as custom-training classes to meet unique, local needs. Education is provided by Share the Faith Chairman Lee Kopulos who has over 30 years of experience in growing successful Orthodox missions. For more information about Lee, visit the Board of Directors page.
