ACYOA Virtual Ministries

The ACYOA's virtual ministries offer ACYOA Juniors (13-18) and Seniors (18+) across the Eastern Diocese additional opportunities to keep in frequent touch with each other, with the Armenian Church and with Christ.

In January 2024, the ACYOA Central Council debuted their first ever podcast series - "GIFT: An ACYOA Podcast"! In collaboration with clergy from across the Eastern Diocese, this new ministry aims to give ACYOA members and Armenian youth a platform to learn and grow in their faith together, share what's on their mind, and connect with clergy in a new way.

Chapter Chair Connections is a virtual series established by the ACYOA Central Council in January 2023. Inspired by our in-person Chapter Connections, this discussion series offers leaders from ACYOA Seniors chapters the opportunity to connect face-to-face with the ACYOA Central Council on a more frequent basis. These chats allow chapters to discuss activities being done at the local level and draw inspiration for future programs. Chapter Chair Connections are open to all board members from ACYOA Seniors chapters, along with young adults interested in establishing an active ACYOA Seniors chapter in their parish.

In December 2022, Central Council launched the ACYOA National Secret Santa Gift Exchange. The idea behind the program was to connect young adults from across the Eastern Diocese, sharing with each other their passions and hobbies while spreading kindness during the season of Advent. 

Monday Night Lenten Prayers is a new virtual ministry established by the ACYOA Central Council in February 2023. These 15-minute virtual prayer sessions offer ACYOA members and all Armenian young adults the opportunity to gather for group prayer and reflection during Lenten season. 

For questions or suggestions on any ACYOA virtual ministries, please contact the ACYOA Central Council at acyoacc@gmail.com.
