Orthodox Christian Fellowship
(OCF) is the official campus ministry effort under SCOBA
(Standing Conference of Canonical Orthodox Bishops in the Americas). Located in Boston, OCF is a Pan-Orthodox effort, overseen by an Executive Committee and aided by an 20-person Student Advisory Board. OCF guides and supports local OCF chapters
through communication with the larger Orthodox Community, National Programs, and development of resources that Orthodox college students and those interested in Orthodoxy can use.
OCF is a member of SYNDESMOS
, the World Fellowship of Orthodox Youth, a federation of Orthodox youth movements and theological schools around the world, working under the blessing of all the local canonical Churches, to serve the Church, Her unity, witness and renewal.
The aim of SYNDESMOS is to develop cooperation and communication among Orthodox youth movements and theological schools around the world, and to promote within them a deeper understanding and vision of their common faith.
