G.O.Y.A. (Greek Orthodox Youth Association), is the ministry to teenagers of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America for the purpose of fellowship, worship, service, and witness.
Retreats and Camps are an integral part of the program. Since G.O.Y.A. is a ministry under the advisement and spiritual guidance of the Proistamenos, the orientation and implementation of the program reflects the Orthodox Christian Faith, Tradition and Life, including a well-rounded program of religious, cultural, athletic and social activities.
Hope & JOY
HOPE (Hellenic Orthodox Primary Education) ministers to Kindergarten through 2nd grade and JOY (Junior Orthodox Youth) ministers to 3rd through 5th grade children of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America.
The mission and goal of the HOPE and JOY ministries is to lead our children in experiencing the Holy Orthodox Faith. By participating in these youth ministries, we allow our young people to deepen their relationship to one another and ultimately to our church and our Lord.
