“And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.” (Ephesians 4:11-12)
The purpose of Orthodox Christian Education at St. George parish is to help build up the Orthodox Church, the Body of Christ, by nurturing every person in the life of personal communion with the Holy Trinity, and accordingly, through this ministry, to bear witness to God’s loving and redeeming work in the world.
Being only one part of the total life of the Church, Christian education is effective in the context of living faith in the home and our local parish. Therefore, we believe that every baptized Orthodox Christian is called to minister and to grow in the knowledge of our Lord. Hence, our Orthodox Faith is expressed through all faithful – bishops, priests, parents, teachers, parish lay leaders, youth leaders, kumovi, and all Orthodox Christians seeking to know and to live the new life in Christ by the power and guidance of the Holy Spirit.
