Greek Orthodox Youth of America (GOYA) is a ministry of the Church for youth
grades 7th – 12th. Belonging to GOYA depends solely on being an Orthodox
Christian. The mission of GOYA is to strengthen the relationship of young
Orthodox Christians with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. GOYA is not an
organization or club, but simply a gathering of the faithful of the Church who
share the same grades, ages and common interests. It is a spiritual ministry
based on the theological tenets of the Orthodox Christian Faith.
GOYA integrates the following elements throughout the year: worship,
fellowship, service, and witness. These tenants of GOYA are seen in their
yearly events including: St. Timothy’s Summer Camp, volunteering with
Orthodox Action, Saint John Chrysostom Oratorical Festival, retreats, sports,
and outdoor activities to name a few. Visit the church calendar to see what is
planned for GOYA this month!
