The Office of Vocation and Ministry (OVM) at Hellenic College created these resources for OrthodoxJobs.com. The OVM seeks to nurture the next generation of leaders who are called to full-time ministry in the Orthodox Church, whether to the ordained priesthood or to lay ministry. As the need for lay employees grows, we hope these resources will help people find lay ministry work for which they are well-suited.

More About the Resources
Since the inception of the OVM in 2003, we have had numerous calls from parish priests and parish council members asking for help finding an appropriate lay assistant, youth director, chantor, etc. Around the same time, OCF, St. Vladimir’s Seminary, and Internet Ministries was each having similar requests. In addition to helping students find jobs, we hope these resources will help parishes with the process of hiring lay assistants.
Your Feedback is Welcome!
To our knowledge, these are the first such resources of this type for the Orthodox Church in the United States. As such, they are still in development stage. We will greatly appreciate the individuals and parishes who utilize these resources and then provide us feedback so that we may improve them.
