The Understanding of Ministry and Mission in the Eastern Orthodox Church

This article seeks to consider the understanding (or lack thereof) of ministry and mission of the Eastern Orthodox Church. It does so by discussing the work of the Orthodox Christian churches (mostly the churches in Eastern Europe) with children and especially children-at-risk. This work is new for these churches and is not yet theologically grounded or systematically organized. Observing the various activities of Orthodox Christians with children-at-risk, questions are raised, such as: is this missionary work, or is it ministry, or is it a task fulfilled by individuals and not by the Church at large? These questions are explored, yet readers are left to make their own conclusions.
