The Young Adult League or YAL is a ministry within the greater Ministry of Youth, Young Adult and Family in the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Denver. The mission of YAL is to cultivate and educate our young adults, leading them to a deeper spiritual friendship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (Christ is called in Greek the Φιλάνθρωπος, the friend of man); by utilizing four corners of the Orthodox Christian Faith, Worship (Liturgia)Fellowship (Koinonia)Service (Diakonia), and Witness (Martyria), young adults are integrated into the life and worship of the Church enabling them to become active members of the Body of Christ. What OCF (Orthodox Christian Fellowship) is for the College Campus, YAL is for the parish. Through the teaching and sharing of these important aspects through activities and events and through attending Church, young adults are encouraged and supported to become well-rounded members of the Church community. Church does not end with GOYA, a new life in Jesus Christ begins with Baptism, continues through the Sacraments and onward into eternity.
