GOYA MINISTRY
(GREEK ORTHODOX YOUTH OF AMERICA)

The Greek Orthodox Youth of America, or GOYA, ministers to young people ages 12-18. Teenagers in sixth through twelfth grades are able to participate.  Since GOYA is a ministry of the church, the orientation and implementation of the program reflects the Orthodox Christian Faith, Tradition, and Life. Our GOYAns are active participants in Faith, Fellowship, and Service.

 

Vision Statement:

All Youth Ministries aim to present the children and youth of our community with a continuum-based ministry; integrating them into a more complete participation of the Liturgical life of our Orthodox Faith.

​Mission Statement:

GOYA provides the young Greek Orthodox Christians of Saints Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church of Washington, DC an opportunity to advance and strengthen the relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The goal is to encourage them to become active Liturgical participants in the life of the Body of Christ. This is accomplished through the four ecclesial characteristics of Diakonia (Service), Martyria (Witness), Liturgia (Worship), and Koinonia (Fellowship).
