Representatives from the American Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Diocese of the USA (ACROD), the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America, the Serbian Orthodox Diocese of the USA, the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, and the Orthodox Church in America (OCA) took part in a campus ministry conference hosted by the Orthodox Christian Fellowship (OCF) at the Courtyard Marriott in Tempe, Arizona from February 4-6, 2010.
According to the ACROD website, the purpose of the conference was to implement a regional chaplaincy network that would support the building up of existing OCF chapters and the establishment of new chapters throughout North America.
Plans were set in motion for implementing improved communication and enhanced resources to local OCF chapters and parish youth ministry programs designed to prepare high school students for the transition to college.
OCF is the official collegiate campus ministry of SCOBA (Standing Conference of Canonical Orthodox Bishops in America). The OCF headquarters is located in Indianapolis, Indiana, and supports 270 local university chapters across the U.S. and Canada.
