Glory to Jesus Christ!

Crisis and major change offer opportunities to reset priorities, and we have a few online opportunities for you as you’re reflecting on how to serve God and neighbor in these uncertain times:

Servant Leadership in the Midst of Pandemic: A Study in Ephesians 4

A free 3-week webinar series Saturday mornings:  April 4, 11, and 25 at 8am PST / 11am EST

Writing from his prison cell in Rome, the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Ephesians is applicable today, urging us to “Live a life worthy of the calling you have received,” and to remember that “Christ equips his people for works of service so that the Body of Christ may be built up.”

Leading Your Domestic Church in the Days of COVID-19

A free 3-week online meeting series Monday nights:  April 6, 13, and 20 at 6pm PST / 9pm EST

Limited to 15 participants

An opportunity for parents to listen to some encouraging words of faith, some practical tips, and to talk with one another about their struggles and successes in leading their “domestic church” during the COVID-19 pandemic.

2020 National Orthodox Advanced Leadership Conference

We now offer an online ticket!  Sign up today!

While we hope to gather in-person this September 18-20 at St. Vladimir’s Seminary, you may opt to participate online.  An online webinar is our solid contingency plan should we continue to face shelter-in-place advisories next fall.

We are happy to announce a successful Pilot 1 of the Intensive Program in Servant Leadership.  God willing, we will proceed with Pilot 2 plans in Los Angeles and Washington DC after Pascha.  As we partner with St. Vladimir's Seminary in developing an “Organizational Leadership” emphasis for its existing Master of Arts (M.A.) program, we invite you to take this brief survey which will help us build out programs that best fit your needs and schedules.

The book of Joshua reminds us, “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; be not frightened, neither be dismayed; for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” (1:9)  May we embrace this opportunity during this pandemic to trust in God’s mercy and provision.
