OCA Church Growth, Evangelism Office to sponsor Boot Camps

The Orthodox Church in America’s Office of Church Growth and Evangelism will sponsor two Church Growth “Boot Camps” during 2002.

An introductory “Basic Boot Camp” will be held at Concordia Seminary, Fort Wayne, IN May 20-22. The program focuses on intentional ministry for new and established parishes alike.

An “Advanced Boot Camp,” especially designed for established parishes, will be held at Saint Vladimir Seminary, Crestwood, NY June 17-19. The advanced camp is especially designed for established parishes and focuses on “church health” issues.

It is not essential for participants in the advanced program to have had participated in the basic camp.

Registration fee for either camp is $200 per person.
