New Genuine Orthodox Mission Community of Middle Tennessee Website Launched

Update 1/10/2010  The GOC mission effort was put on hold when the original baptized family went to another jurisdiction.

From the Home Page of GOC Tennessee 

"Welcome to GOC Tennessee. Here you will find everything you need to know about our on-going effort to establish a mission of the Genuine Orthodox Church of America, in Middle Tennessee. This mission effort in Tennessee was launched in November 2009 when one Tennessee family was baptized and became a part of the GOC. Soon after, calls began to come in from other Middle Tennessee families and individuals who have longed for a local presence of a Genuine Orthodox Church in the Nashville area, with whom to be in communion. The mission members currently meet together every Sunday for a full Matins and a Readers Service, led by layman Readers and Chanters. Our supervising GOC priest, Father Anastasios Hudson, who pastors two missions in Raleigh and Greenville, North Carolina, will travel to Middle Tennessee upon occasion, as he continues to offer us his pastoral care. The GOC Tennessee community joins several other GOC mission groups being established in the South, including North Carolina, Arkansas, and Oklahoma. While GOC Tennessee has its initial beginnings in Middle Tennessee, we welcome inquiries from other Tennessee residents who wish to establish a local mission in the East and West Tennessee regions. Please contact us by phone or e-mail. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have and welcome you with the love and joy that is characteristic of this blessed community of Genuine Orthodox Christian believers."
