Book Studies

Books studies on evangelism are a great way to foster interest and support in a parish. We recommend starting with “Ask for the Ancient Paths” by Fr. James Guirguis. We also have a discussion guide available HERE.

St. Nikolai Cross Reference

St Nikolai of Zica (Velimirovic) (1880-1956) has been called the “Serbian Chrysostom” for his theological depth and golden-tongued eloquence. 

In this downloadable pdf file, you can cross reference St. Nikolai’s homilies from the Prologue of Ohrid to the gospel/epistle of the day. 

Spirit of Welcoming Report

This project is designed to measure an aspect of parish life which is difficult for the parish to accurately assess on its own: how welcoming it is to visitors. As an individual who feels drawn to Missions and Evangelism, I wanted to design a project that worked to strengthen this ministry in America. How welcoming our parishes are to outsiders is one aspect that, historically, Orthodox parishes have struggled with. Orthodoxy has never been “mainstream” in this land and is even still viewed as a foreign religion by most. That has caused the ethnically Orthodox to huddle together for strength, often at the exclusion of outsiders. However, Orthodoxy has tremendous potential to convert many in this land to the fullness of Christianity. We must grasp the divine command of Christ and bring this land into His fold. One way we can work towards this end is by evaluating the “Spirit of Welcoming” at our parishes.
