What an inspiring group of young individuals, upholding the true values of an Orthodox Christian by their passion for the church and community. Children can participate as early as 12 years of age in this influential organization. The main focus of GOYA is to foster spiritual growth in young people. This growth is evidenced as Goyans engage in spirited discussions on who they are as Orthodox Christians in today's modern world. Through these discussions, sharing in prayers and Church services, and working together in planning events, the Goyans have established strong interpersonal relationships with one another. GOYA is an important facet of our children in growing in the likeness of God.
