Fr. John Parker, the new chairman of the OCA's Department of Evangelization, describes how his parish, Holy Ascension Orthodox Church in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, went from having a handful of believers to being a lively and growing body of Christ.
"Has it only been ten years? It seems like you've been around forever! Though I live alone in my small apartment, you connect me with Christ-followers all over the world. Their melodies and harmonies fill my heart with joy. Their teachings and information help keep me on the path of salvation. If every listener would give ten dollars for your ten years, you would have what you need to sustain you for a good while. May your voice of fath, hope, and love resound throughout the earth until our Lord's return! "
