Orthodox Christian Fellowship (OCF)
Stay in communion with your Orthodox Christian Church while away at college! There is an active chapter of OCF at the University of Kansas. Their Facebook page lists the following mission statement:
The mission of Orthodox Christian Fellowship (OCF) is to support fellowships on college campuses, whose members experience and witness to the Orthodox Christian Church through community life, prayer, service to others and study of the Faith (Acts 2:42).
Furthermore, OCF will work to nurture and strengthen love for Jesus Christ and His Church in its fullness at this most critical juncture of human life through:
- Communication between OCF's and with the larger Orthodox community
- Development of resources for local OCF's
- National endeavors such as College Conference, Real Break, website and a national newsletter
The current priest working with this chapter is Fr. Joshua Lollar of St. Nicholas Orthodox Church in Lawrence, Kansas
