Senior Accountant

The Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America, is an Archdiocese of the Orthodox Patriarchate of Antioch and All the East. We trace our roots to first century Antioch, the city which the disciples of Jesus Christ were first called Christians. (Acts 11:26)

Sometimes called the Eastern Orthodox Church, the Orthodox Church is the first Christian Church, the Church founded by the Lord Jesus Christ and described in the pages of the New Testament.  Her history can be traced in unbroken continuity all the way back to Christ and His Twelve Apostles.  For twenty centuries, she has continue her undiminished and unaltered faith and practice.  Today, her apostolic doctrine, worship and structure remain intact.  The Orthodox Church maintains that the Church is the living Body of Jesus Christ.

The Church of Antioch was established by the Apostles Paul and Barnabas in 42 A. D. with St. Peter serving for the next eight years as its first prelate. The Church of Antioch is one of the five ancient Patriarchates of the Christian Church, along with Alexandria, Constantinople, Jerusalem, and Rome.  We are in full communion with our brothers and sisters in other Eastern Orthodox Christian Jurisdictions, such as the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America and the Orthodox Church in America.  The Archdiocese refers to its parishes and organizations as "Antiochian," but not as Greek, Russian, Romanian, and so forth, because these names refer to other jurisdictions.

Together, we work to nurture the Orthodox Christians of this land- whether immigrants or native-born, cradle Orthodox, or converts - and to bring North America to the ancient Orthodox Christian Faith.

Our Archdiocese spans the United States and Canada. Much of the work of our Archdiocese is accomplished by dedicated bishops, clergy, ministry staff and volunteers laboring in a wide range of departments and organizations seeing to the needs of our communities.
