Summer Missions Course and Practicum in Albania

The Missions Institute of Orthodox Christianity at Hellenic College Holy Cross is now accepting applications for this summer’s The Missiology of Archbishop Anastasios mission class and practicum to Albania. This is a 3-credit summer class that combines an academic element with a missions experience, together with a spiritual pilgrimage. 

The course will study in depth the life, missiology and writings of the greatest contemporary Orthodox missionary and missiologist, Archbishop Anastasios (Yannoulatos) of Albania, and examine how he has practically lived out this missiology through his ministry in the Church of Albania. 

The course will look at the foundation and calling of missions. We will consider the resurrection of the Church of Albania over the past 25 years, examining and analyzing the successes of how the church has succeeded in living out the missiology of the Archbishop. 

Part of the course will be devoted to a mission practicum where the students will travel to Albania for two weeks, witnessing the resurrection of the Church of Albania, meeting missionaries and the indigenous leaders of the Church, and participating in evangelism programs within the country.

Space is limited for interested students. The class will include 12 students from Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology, Hellenic College, St. Vladimir Seminary, St. Tikhon Seminary, St. Herman Seminary, and other Orthodox seminaries in the US.

DEADLINE for application is MARCH 1st, 2016. Any questions, and all application requests should be sent to Fr. Luke at
