The mission and goal of G.O.Y.A ministry is to lead our young people into experiencing the Holy Orthodox Faith. By developing a personal relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and becoming active sacramental members of the living Church, our young people will be equipped with tools necessary to assist them in their journey toward salvation.
G.O.Y.A. is the umbrella organization for all of our teen youth programs. Typical activities include the annual Winter Youth Rally, attendance at various professional and collegiate sporting events as well as visiting nursing homes, soup kitchens, Christmas caroling, sponsoring the Church's Back to Sunday School and Mother’s Day Luncheons, Bake sales, and other events. G.O.Y.A. also participates in many Metropolis sponsored events including: St. Steven’s Summer Camp, Winter Youth Rally, Hellenic Dance Festival, Advent and Lenten Retreats.
