GreatMartyr Euphemia Orthodox Theological Academy
This fall will mark our 5th year of educating and helping train others, like you, in the Orthodox theological Tradition. It’s hard to believe that 5 years have already gone by, but so much has happened in all that time. For those of you who have supported our work, I invite you to peek through this short email and see what your support has accomplished these past 5 years!
Here is a gallery of some of our students on the day of their ordination.
Across jurisdictions, our students get ordained.
Not only across the globe, but across jurisdictional boundaries, our students are getting ordained as deacons, and as priests”.* Our programs prepares men who wish to serve the Church with what they need to teach, preach, and live the Gospel in the parish setting. “What jurisdictions?” you ask. Our students have been ordained in the churches of Antioch, Alexandria, Greece, Jerusalem, Serbia, and Russia.
*GMEuphemia Academy is NOT a seminary program, and has no residency program. Our program is entirely online. Additional study and formation are recommended for all who are preparing for ordination.
From Student to Teacher
Many of our students begin holding Bible studies, Bible surveys, and other classes on Church history, Orthodox Christian morality, and more in their home areas and parishes.
Homeschooling parents are teaching their children solid patristic understandings of prayer, Scripture, history and spirituality. Our students are preparing the next generation of the faithful, bringing light to others in these darkening times.
The Liturgy must go on!
During the COVID pandemic lockdowns, many churches were closed – but many of our alumni kept on serving the Liturgy, kept teaching classes, and kept the life of the Church going.
Many of our ordained graduates are serving distant missions who have been praying for their own clergy for a long time. Now, thanks to GMETOA, they have regularly scheduled services, access to the Holy Mysteries, and the Divine Liturgy for their families, and especially their children.
Join us. Support us. Study with us.
The Liturgy must go on.
Fall Semester begins Sept. 1st! Be apart of history!
