Metropolis Junior Board
Formed in June 2019, the Metropolis of Chicago Junior board is composed of 24 young adult leaders from throughout the Metropolis. Originally conceived by His Eminence Metropolitan Nathanael, the Board’s primary charge is to recommend, develop, and implement policies and programs to encourage greater participation among young adults in the life of the Church, including among lapsed or unengaged Orthodox Christians.
Beyond advising His Eminence, the Junior Board also interacts with the Metropolis Council to help shape Metropolis policy and programs to meet the needs and concerns of youth and young adults.
