Jordanville, NY: Support the Growing Mission of Orthodox Life

Last Decem­ber, on the win­ter feast of the Holy Hierarch Nicholas, Holy Trin­i­ty Monastery launched a new web­site as a con­tin­u­a­tion of the 66-year lega­cy of its Eng­lish-lan­guage jour­nal, Ortho­dox Life. Now, a day after the great hierarch’s sum­mer feast, the editors have issued a new appeal asking for readers’ sup­port in con­tin­u­ing to mod­ern­ize and expand its mis­sion to reach more peo­ple than ever before!

Expanding Orthodox Life

The editors would love to expand the work of OrthodoxLife.org, but like any organization, they have limited resources and need your support to commit more time toward developing the site. Here are a few of the ways in which they intent to expand their efforts:

1) Full Archive of Orthodox Life Back Issues

The legacy of Orthodox Life stretches back through decades of rich theological and historical depth contained in the sermons, articles, and reflections published in the journal’s print edition. Editors have already given new life to a few pieces from recent back issues. But their dream is to digitize the full archive and make it available as an interconnected web of live, searchable, and tagged posts. Your pledge through their Patreon page will allow the editors to embark on this important work of preserving and sharing these pearls from the spiritual legacy of ROCOR.

2) New Audio & Video Content

One promise made when OrthodoxLife.org launched was to utilize "all the best forms of digital media." So far, the editors are proud of the work they have done to make their articles visually appealing, easy to read, and optimized for social media and search engines. They would love to take the next step with regularly posted video and audio content, based on the same high production value as the rest of the site. Branching out into other forms of media would also help reach a wider audience with the eternal lessons of the Orthodox Faith.

3) Regular Material from Quality Writers & Knowledgeable Teachers of the Faith

There is a number of already active Orthodox writers who share the ethos and vision of Orthodox Life. The editors would love to bring many of these into the fold and offer some small remuneration for the work these writers do to spread the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. In addition to regular contributors, they would be offered a small stipend for accepted submissions to the site. The laborer is worthy of his hire (I Tim. 5:18).

4) Hiring a Managing Editor to Spearhead All of These Efforts & More!

Cur­rent­ly, the day-to-day man­age­ment of this site is del­e­gat­ed to the staff of Holy Trin­i­ty Pub­li­ca­tions. They do their best to bal­ance the site’s needs with­in the wider con­text of their pub­lish­ing and book­selling work. But to real­ly get seri­ous about the­se expan­sion efforts, they need to make room in the bud­get for a ded­i­cat­ed man­ag­ing edi­tor – some­one to take on and imple­ment the­se plans while iden­ti­fy­ing even more areas for growth.

Support the Growing Mission of OrthodoxLife.org!

Here’s where you come in. The editors have launched their very own cre­ator page on Patre­on, a crowd-fund­ing site that allows sup­port­ers to pledge a month­ly dona­tion toward set mon­e­tary goals. All Orthodox Life mate­ri­al is and will con­tin­ue to be entire­ly free. But your month­ly dona­tion of any amount sup­ports efforts to bring Ortho­dox Life to a wider audi­ence than ever before – whether Ortho­dox Christians, seek­ers, or even those who have nev­er before encoun­tered the True Faith. Through your month­ly sup­port, you become a co-labor­er in their mis­sion!

In thanks for your month­ly pledge, you’ll receive exclu­sive dis­counts, ear­ly access to new con­tent, and even an annu­al gift box! You’ll find a full list of reward tiers on the journal’s Patre­on page.

Please visit the Patreon page to pledge your sup­port toward the con­tin­u­a­tion and expan­sion of OrthodoxLife.org.
