Servant Enrichment Program
To provide participants with a solid Orthodox Christian education, which enables them to grow in faith, to search for knowledge and truth, and continue building the Kingdom of God on earth. By active involvement in the learning process, individuals are prepared to “serve the Lord with gladness” (Psalm 100:2) and are trained to live a life of Christian Leadership. They are also prepared to pass their love for God and the true Christian teachings to the new generation.
God willing, the comprehensive curriculum includes courses that cover major topics such as:
- Biblical Studies: New & Old Testament,
- Church history,
- Orthodox Studies,
- Liturgical Studies,
- Spiritual & Comparative Theology, and
- Educational Segments such as counseling & human behavior.
Each course will have anywhere from 8 to 10 class/session meetings over 8-10 week periods. The year will consist of three quarters excluding summer periods. Our hope and prayer is that we cover a total of 6-8 courses over a two-year period that would result in a 100-125 hours of advanced Christian education that is suited to those who wish to serve the Lord Jesus Christ in a variety of ministries.
For this quarter, classes will promptly begin meeting on Sunday nights at @ 7:30 pm till 9:00 pm.
This curriculum will primarily be delivered to the Sunday School servants of the church. However, Fr John is permitting and allowing any of the church’s congregational members, who are diligently seeking to learn more about the faith, to join and enroll in the classes. Please remember, that these courses are required and are considered mandatory for all young English-speaking servants; other servants are highly encouraged to attend.
