ORTHODOX CHURCH-GROWTH
(2007-01-22)
(wgvu) - DETROIT IS EMERGING AS A NATIONAL CENTER FOR THE
REBIRTH OF ORTHODOX CHRISTIAN CHURCHES.
THE CHURCHES HAVE DEEP ETHNIC ROOTS IN EASTERN EUROPE, THE
MIDDLE EAST AND NORTH AFRICA.
SOCIAL SCHOLARS SAY THE CHURCHES ARE GROWING IN THE UNITED
STATES THROUGH IMMIGRATION AND CONVERSION.
NEXT WEEK, MANY OF DETROIT'S ORTHODOX LEADERS WILL HOST THE
FIRST IN A SERIES OF CONFERENCES PLANNED NATIONWIDE FOR
NON-ORTHODOX CLERGY WHO WANT TO EXPLORE CONVERSION.
