New Study On Orthodox Evangelism In America

Last year I was approached by Alexei Krindatch, the Research Coordinator for the Assembly of Bishops, to be a part of the first national study on evangelism and outreach in Orthodox churches of the United States. The study was initiated and sponsored by the Committee for Agencies and Endorsed Organizations (Bishop Gregory of Nyssa, Chairman).

We collected data from about from several jurisdictions, ten parishes each. I was also asked to write a special chapter evaluating the evangelistic nature of the parish websites.
