July 2010 Newsletter

Plebe Summer 2010 is here! Glory to Jesus Christ! The new plebes (freshmen) have arrived and we are two weeks in to our annual ministry to this year’s incoming class at the U.S. Naval Academy. This year, they come from such vastly different places as American Samoa to Mississippi to the Northeast to the Republic of Georgia. As in past years our emphasis in teaching is on Godly Leadership: what it means to bring your communion with Christ to bear on your formation at the USNA and your military service.

February 2010 Newsletter

Christ is in our midst! He is and ever shall be! So much has happened since I last wrote to you last Fall. In that newsletter, which we sent out snail mail, we shared with you our vision to grow the ministry by offering the students specific men’s and women’s Bible studies at both St. John’s College and the U.S. Naval Academy.

I also shared with you that I was to be ordained to the diaconate by His Beatitude, Metropolitan Jonah, which took place on 14 December at St. Nicholas OCA Cathedral in D.C. Soon afterwards, my Matushka and I found out that we are expecting. Praise God!

At the same time, I have begun another year of Plebe Summer Ministry, which began the beginning of July. This is my fourth year ministering to the freshman class of midshipmen at the U.S. Naval Academy; it is a great opportunity to impact our future leaders with the truth of the Gospel and Orthodox Faith.
