Youth Ministries



Little Angels is the playgroup for children ages 40 days to 5 years.


J.O.Y. (Junior Orthodox Youth) is the youth group for children ages 7-12 years old. They meet once a month. The JOY program has the same objectives as all ministries of the church: to lead young people into a living and active relationship with Jesus Christ. Consequently, the programs and activities that we develop must always, directly and indirectly, lead in this direction. It is at this age that a foundation of faith can best be set; a foundation that will guide and strengthen our young people as they progress into junior high and high school.


What is GOYA?

The Greek Orthodox Youth of America, or GOYA, is the ministry to teenagers of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of North America. Since GOYA is a ministry, the orientation and implementation of the program should reflect the Orthodox Christian lifestyle.

GOYA is ministry to Junior High and High School age Greek Orthodox teenagers. Age specifications are set at thirteen through eighteen year old teenagers who are in seventh through twelfth grade. It is possible for twelve year olds to be in GOYA if they are in the seventh grade.

The main element of any GOYA meeting or gathering is Orthodox Christian Fellowship. Every opportunity should be made to promote fellowship between teenagers.
