Sponsored by the Antiochian Archdiocese of North America, the Antiochian House of Studies proctors distance-learning, organizes local residencies, and hosts national symposia that gather pastors, professors, bishops and laymen from all over the world in a study of the history, liturgy, and practice of theology.
Some students are Orthodox bishops, priests, deacons, laymen, church school directors, youth workers, chanters, altar servers, monks, nuns, priests.
Others are pastors or laymen from various Orthodox jurisdictions and other Christian denominations, including Anglican, Lutheran, Baptist, Episcopalian, Methodist, Roman Catholic, and many more.
Still others are university professors, psychologists, high school teachers, iconographers, physicians, attorneys, homemakers, accountants, business people, retirees, mothers, and fathers.
The House of Studies students come from all walks of life, but they are united by two things: their love for God, and their love of learning.
