Apply to be a Pilot Parish

We recognize that Orthodox priests and lay leaders across the country urgently want to engage young adults more deeply in their parishes. We are seeking leaders who want to get to know the young adults in their communities and create ministries unique to their needs. Parishes that love the idea of continually learning, revisiting, collaborating, and growing in their ministry are a great fit to be Telos pilot parishes.

Fourteen Orthodox parishes from across the country will be chosen as pilot parishes to collaborate with us over the next five years. These parishes will participate in an annual learning conference, webinars, and other collaborative resources as we together seek how to reach this generation. We will cover the cost of each team to send three members to the annual learning conference (travel, as well as meals and lodging during the conference).
