Servants Education

St. Mary and St. Athanasius Coptic Orthodox Church Servants Education Program is committed to preparing its servants to lead their entrusted services with love, humility, and knowledge.

It is our goal for each individual servant to grow in faith and advance their understanding of the Orthodox Christian faith, the Coptic Church tradition, and early fathers’ teachings.

Our ultimate objective in this program is to lay a strong spiritual foundation and to provide participants with:

  • A learning environment shaped by the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • A host of references, tools, and materials that embody the principles of the Alexandrian Coptic Orthodox Church as they were institutionalized by our early fathers and keepers of the deposit of faith.
