All Teens between the ages of 13 - 19 are welcomed to join the Teen SOYO to grow in the Orthodox Faith in Christ.

The ultimate goal of Teen SOYO is to fully integrate each teen into the full life of the Church through the four pillars of SOYO; Worship, Witness, Service, and Fellowship.

  • WORSHIP ‐ Corporate worship is the sacramental expression of and participation in Holy Tradition, and is the indispensable foundation of Teen SOYO at all levels. Upon this foundation is a cultivation of daily personal prayer life and reading of Holy Scripture.
  • WITNESS ‐ Christ calls us to be His witness in the world. Teen SOYO must enable fellow Members to express their faith for themselves and to others in order to be true witnesses to Christ and the Orthodox Faith.
  • SERVICE ‐ Christ came not to be served, but to serve. Teen SOYO seeks to emulate Christ in this and honors and glorifies God by loving and serving mankind in the name of Jesus Christ, using our God‐given gifts and talents.
  • FELLOWSHIP ‐ The Holy Trinity is the perfect model of fellowship; the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit share perfect communion and exist in perfect love as a community. By gathering together in fellowship, and by showing love for one another in Christ, we emulate the life of the Holy Trinity in our daily life.
