An Important Notice Regarding Bringing America to Orthodoxy!


An Important Notice Regarding Bringing America to Orthodoxy!

Dear Friend,

The 2004 North American Orthodox Conference on Missions and Evangelism will be held September 3-6 (Labor Day Weekend) in Norman, Oklahoma, just outside Oklahoma City. The Conference is a cross-jurisdictional event sponsored by the Orthodox Christian Mission Center, and hosted by the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese Department of Missions and Evangelism.

Participants will learn how to share their Christian Faith from an Orthodox perspective and help their parishes grow. The Conference has proven enormously beneficial to hundreds of Orthodox clergy and laity for well over a decade, and even has become a popular and pivotal event for inquirers exploring the Orthodox Church.

This year’s Conference features Fr. Peter Gillquist, Prof. Matthew Gallatin (author of “Thirsting For God”), and Mrs. Catherine Lingas (president of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of San Francisco Commission on Orthodox Missions and Evangelism). This excellent line-up of speakers addressing several new and very important topics, combined with the top-notch facilities offered by the University of Oklahoma at a very affordable rate, adds up to a terrifically inspirational and instructional experience for Orthodox Christians who wish to share their “pearl of great price”.

This is the first time the Conference has been offered in the middle part of America. Don’t let this fantastic opportunity for spiritual education and renewal pass you by, especially if you live in the Midwest, South, or Southwest.

Please consider attending the 2004 Orthodox Conference on Missions and Evangelism.

Finally, please share this information with a friend(s), and remember those who labor on this Conference and its participants in your prayers. Thank you, and may the Lord God bless you!

Yours in Christ,
