OCYM - Objectives
Greetings and welcome to the Dubai unit of the Orthodox Christian Youth Movement. There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. 6 There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work. Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.
1 Corinthians 12 verses 4-7
The three fold objectives of the Orthodox Christian Youth Movement are worship, study and service for the growth, development and empowerment of our members. The youth movement gives all of of us opportunities to develop and share our skills whether they are for study of the Bible, organizing activities for children, raising funds for charity etc. Our movement will make every effort to promote deeper knowledge of the Bible and of the Malankara orthodox doctrine as well as encourage members to reach out to our fellow men through service and community oriented activities. The movement will also promote fellowship and the development of leadership skills through competitions, picnics and day trips and study classes by professionals such as psychologists, doctors and other resource persons. Through programmes like Venal shibhiram, a holiday camp for our children, we will also aim to promote allegiance to our church and an affinity to our culture in the younger generation.
