What is the OVM Foundation?

The Orthodox Vocation and Ministry Foundation furthers the work of the Office of Vocation & Ministry (OVM), Hellenic College Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology in Brookline, Massachusetts. In Summer 2018 the CrossRoad Summer Institute, a program of the OVM, will for the first time expand to a non-campus area and offer a ten-day session in Chicago, Illinois. As demand for current programs and additional programs increases as a result of the OVM’s excellence in Orthodox Christian ministry, the existence of this foundation will allow for effective growth.

Our Mission

We provide transformative opportunities for Orthodox Christian youth and young adults to grow in faith, vocation, and leadership

Our Vision

Our hope is that Orthodox Christian youth and young adults have the opportunity to engage in thriving ministry across North America and become servant leaders for our 21st century Church and world
