OCF (Orthodox Christian Fellowship) is a pan Orthodox SCOBA ministry for college students. Here at the University of Georgia we have a very active and accomplished chapter. Lead by Father Anthony, the students gather once a week—one week at the church hall for a home cooked meal and the next week on campus at the Tate Student Center.
 
Often the discussions center on issues concerning Orthodoxy in our culture and how to live a life in Christ in a secular world. College students are faced with many new personal challenges, are experiencing many new ideologies and philosophies, and are spreading their wings to new heights of maturity. It is also a time for them to reexamine their personal commitment to Christ and transform the faith of their parents into their own personal expression. OCF is there for them on many levels-- educationally, sacramentally and socially. OCF is also a witnessing presence on campus for those who are seeking a deeper expression of their faith and who are interested in learning about Eastern Orthodoxy and the Early Church Traditions of Christianity. Fr. Anthony is a long time member of the CMA (Campus Ministers Association) and OCF is a recognized campus organization.
