Ancient Faith Radio seeks to deepen and enrich the faith of Orthodox Christians around the world with streaming audio programming, live call-ins, and on-demand podcasts. We feature liturgical music from a variety of Orthodox traditions, as well as prayers, readings, lectures, and interviews.
Ancient Faith Radio is a division of Ancient Faith Ministries, which also operates Ancient Faith Publishing under the auspices of the Antiochian Orthodox Archdiocese of North America. However, it is a pan-Orthodox ministry and thus serves and supports all jurisdictions.
The Orthodox Christian Network is an official agency of the Assembly of Bishops, originally commissioned by SCOBA to create a national, sustainable, and effective media witness for Orthodox Christianity throughout North America. In a constantly changing media landscape, OCN delivers positive, relevant Orthodox content via multiple delivery platforms, reaching today’s internet users via broadcast, podcast, video, blogging, and webinar content. “Come Receive the Light,” OCN’s flagship program hosted by Fr. Christopher Metropulos, is the only nationally syndicated Orthodox Christian radio broadcast. OCN works in direct collaboration with sister Assembly agencies (e.g., IOCC, OCMC, OCF, OCPM), as well as with various Orthodox Christian jurisdictions and pan-Orthodox, para-church organizations. Our goal is to engage the broader culture of North America with Orthodox Christianity’s rich theological, spiritual, and moral heritage, and to thereby strengthen the Orthodox Church’s witness and contribution to the culture in which we live.

Orthodox Christianity, Culture and Religion, Making the Journey of Faith
Priest Stephen Freeman - St Anne Church - Oak Ridge, TN
Archpriest John Jillions, Chancellor of the OCA, shares his personal reflections on Scripture and provides updates on the work of the OCA Chancery.
The Orthodox Church views education as being much more comprehensive than mere schooling. Scripture tells us to raise our children in the nurture—paideia—and admonition of the Lord. Needless to say, this task is not one that any school could reasonably claim as its province alone, but schools can be structured in their content and in their methods to complement the broader project of Christian paideia. This hope led Christians throughout the centuries to establish schools they deemed compatible with the proper formation of young people, and today, this same hope is moving more and more Orthodox Christians across America to do the same.
To conduct these schools in a manner that is both faithful and responsible, we must be rooted in principles that will keep us consistent with our faith, while also acquiring the practical skills that will keep our lamps trimmed and burning. The Orthodox School Association wishes to support such efforts by providing a network of schools, curricular resources, professional development opportunities, and conferences that are specific to the needs and concerns of Orthodox Christian educators.
