Our Mission

The St. James Orthodox Church Youth & Young Adults Program strives to create a sense of  community and accountability amongst the youth of our church through four pillars: Faith, Fellowship, Service, and Outreach. The goal is that with ongoing spiritual education and acts of charity, we will create a fun environment that is faith-filled and spiritually-enriching for generations to come.

The Pillars

Faith
The Faith pillar is focused on strengthening our relationship with God, and encouraging us to take up our crosses and follow Christ.
Includes events such as Bible studies, monastery visits, spiritual education, choir participation, etc.
