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
