Why Engage in Telos Gamma? 

    • According to the 2020 census, 26% of Orthodox adherents are young adults
    • Young adult ministry at parishes is widely under supported 
    • Organizing and maintaining great ministry is HARD 
    • Common youth ministry models do NOT work for young adults
    • Our young adults need the Church and the Church needs young adults!!

What is Telos Gamma?

Telos is a one-year process in which a team of young adults and adults at a parish will be…

  • equipped to uncover the realities of your young adults, so they can meet their real needs and engage their abundant gifts 
  • taught ministry best practices 
  • supported by a coach 
  • offered grant funding for new initiatives
  • provided with a cohort, a community of peers who are doing the same work at other parishes
