GOYA
(12-18 years old)

Greek Orthodox Youth of America (GOYA) was founded as a religious movement for Greek Orthodox teenagers.  Its fundamental characteristics are Diakonia (Service), Martyria (Witness), Liturgia (Worship), and Koinonia (Fellowship).  Youth Ministry is concerned with the Christ centered experience of the total person. At Holy Trinity, GOYA is also known as YHT or the Youth of Holy Trinity.

The purpose of GOYA is to direct youth members to become worthy servants of our Lord, Jesus Christ within the Orthodox Christian faith.  The fellowship with other GOYANS in religious, educational, service, social, athletic and cultural activities should always reflect our Christian faith.
