G.O.Y.A. Ministry

The mission and goal of GOYA ministry is to lead our young people into experiencing the Holy Orthodox Faith. By developing a personal relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and becoming active sacramental members of the living Church, our young people will be equipped with tools necessary to assist them in their journey toward salvation. The Greek Orthodox Youth of America, or GOYA, is the ministry to teenagers of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. Since GOYA is ministry, the orientation and implementation of the program should reflect the Orthodox Christian Faith, Tradition and Life.

Programs and Events:
* Community Volunteer Projects
* Youth Activities
* Diocese Retreats
* Summer Camps
* Diocese Basketball Tournament

"Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6
