Orthodox Christian Education Commission

Orthodox Christian Education Commission

The Orthodox Christian Education Commission is an agency of the Standing Conference of Canonical Orthodox Bishops in America. It was founded in 1957 by a group of Orthodox theologians and educators as a forum to exchange ideas and to search for solutions to common educational problems. It currently aims to develop and publish educational material for and offers support services to Orthodox Christian Churches in North America.

The OCEC is governed by a Board of Trustees made up of jurisdictional representatives. Under the Presidency of Metropolitan Philip Saliba of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese, the Commission seeks to encourage cooperation among member jurisdictions. The daily operations of the Commission are conducted by an Executive Board, composed of a Chairman (the Vice President of the Commission) and the various heads of the departments.
