Young adults from across North America will gather this coming October 6-8, here for a new conference being organized by Orthodox churches in the Atlanta area.
The CONNECT Conference is a new event for Orthodox Christian young adults (ages 20 – 39). According to Callie Corley, one of the organizers, “This conference offers an opportunity for young adults to retreat, recharge, and reconnect with Christ, the Church, and other Orthodox Christians.”
Speakers at the conference include His Grace, Bishop Gregory of Nyssa, of the American Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Diocese of the U.S.A., along with clergy and Orthodox laity who will speak on the theme of “Finding Christ in Every Day Life.”
“Many young Orthodox Christians lose their connection to the Church after high school,” Callie noted. “This pan-Orthodox initiative is intended to help young adults stay connected to their Faith and maintain their devotion to Christ.”
