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.
GOYA is the Church’s ministry to youth in middle school and high school. In addition to what we do together, we strive to offer distinct activities for middle and high school youth.
MISSION AND GOAL OF GOYA 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.
St. John the Divine GOYA’s 2012 Lenten Retreat will be held March 30 – April 1 at St. Simons Island, GA. This year’s retreat theme will be “The Light in Us”. We look forward to seeing you then.
