Called to Lead:
An Orthodox Christian Perspective

A six-part podcast series from the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Chicago

Called to Lead: An Orthodox Christian Perspective was created as part of the Metropolis of Chicago Strategic Plan. It is meant to help parish lay leaders achieve a better understanding of Orthodox Christian Servant Leadership as they serve their communities. Each of these episodes is 15-30 minutes—approximately two hours for all six episodes. Demitri Fardelos (St. Demetrios – Libertyville, IL) and Mary Scott (St. Andrew – South Bend, IN and St. Sophia – Elgin, IL) co-host the episodes and interview clergy from around the Metropolis of Chicago. Each podcast includes a recap, highlights, and an assessment to help you better understand the topic.

Members of the Lay Leadership Strategic Plan Goal Team include: Demitri Fardelos (Co-Chair, St. Demetrios – Libertyville, IL), Harry Fournier (Co-Chair, St. Demetrios – Elmhurst, IL), Chris Limperis (Assumption – Chicago, IL), Mary Scott (St. Andrew – South Bend, IN and St. Sophia – Elgin, IL), Anna Sikoral (St. Haralambos – Niles, IL), and Nikki Vulgaris (All Saints – Peoria, IL)
