The Teen SOYO Movement seeks to integrate each young person fully into the Total life of the Church. SOYO brings its members to a deeper devotion to the Holy Orthodox Church, its faith, canons and worship. Teen SOYO creates and fosters ministries to encourage Members to commit themselves to living the Orthodox Faith daily.
The combination of Worship, Witness, Service and Fellowship are the natural expressions of that commitment. We define these expressions as follows:
Teen SOYO at St. John's is open to all youth 6th grade to age 19.
