Acts 11:26

The Church Of Antioch

C hrist the Good Shepherd Orthodox Mission is part of the Antiochian Orthodox Patriarchate. Our church’s roots are traceable back to the ancient, 1st century Christian church where the disciples were first called Christians. We are part of the global Eastern Orthodox Church communion that has believers all over the world.

Our Antiochian Mission

T he origins of Christ the Good Shepherd Orthodox Mission began in the summer of 2020 in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. As many churches remained inaccessible a few families met weekly to pray outside on a family’s farm. These first founders desired to have an Antiochian presence in the greater Charlotte, NC area. The families worked with Bishop Nicholas and clergy, the V. Rev. Fr. Paul Solberg and Deacon Thomas Fernandez to help organize and form the mission. During the time we began meeting at a local Catholic church in Concord, NC and continue to meet there at present. The mission was granted official mission status in January of 2021 and we received our antimins and began celebrating the Divine Liturgy in March of 2021.
