Welcome to the Medan Virtual Mission Team! The St. Demetrios Paroikia Orthodox Church will gather for 2-3 hours each day on November 4 and 5, to learn more about the Orthodox Faith. Under the Metropolis of Singapore and South Asia, this community has been shepherded by Fr. Chrysostom Manula since its inception. Situated in the bustling city of Medan, St. Demetrios has provided a model of Christian love to this majority Muslim city. One of Fr. Chrysostom’s first accomplishments in Medan was to establish the St. Demetrios Paroikia. Soon after that, he opened the St. Paul Seminary on the same compound as the Church.
This mission effort in Medan is meeting the needs of many who are searching to learn who God is and who want to develop a relationship with Him. The goals of this Virtual outreach are to enrich people with the knowledge of God, to empower them to share the Orthodox faith and to share the hope of Christ during this time of the Covid pandemic.
Team members will teach, encourage and provide an expression of Christian love by giving of their time and talent to show how connected the Orthodox world truly is. Join us November 4th and 5th, 2021! (Registration fee $60)
