This annual campaign (formerly Mochas for Missions) supports our Metropolis Missions & Evangelism Ministry. Our mission is to educate, equip, and engage clergy and faithful in Evangelism & Mission in the Orthodox Christian Tradition. We provide evangelism workshops and retreats, facilitate the sharing of best practices, subsidize needs at the 6 mission parishes throughout our Metropolis, engage with national research in evangelism, and work to help ALL parishes creatively share the Gospel in their local context.
Today we are working with His Eminence Metropolitan Gerasimos to establish new parishes in growing metropolitan areas.
Our Ministry was founded in 1991.
During his 25 years as a bishop, Metropolitan Anthony established 23 new parishes in the Metropolis of San Francisco.
The original funding source for our work came from Pennies and Prayers.
In 2014, as a result of the Metropolis Strategic Plan, the Ministry hired its first full-time employee.
2015-2017 the campaign was called Mochas for Missions, and from 2018 through today it is Missions Possible.
Our Metropolis has 6 mission parishes, which we define as parishes that do not yet have a full-time priest assigned.
All funds raised go to work in our Metropolis.
