The Metropolis Council is the advisory and consultative body to the Metropolitan and is concerned with the life and growth of the Metropolis, its ministries, institutions and financial condition. It is comprised of the Metropolitan, the Chancellor, eight (8) Clergy of the Metropolis and eight (8) Laity elected by the Metropolis Clergy-Laity Assembly, and eight (8) appointees by the Metropolitan from the Clergy and Laity, plus a number of representatives of important institutions and groups associated with the life of the Metropolis (like the Philoptochos Society, Choir Federation, Leadership 100, etc.).
The Council meets three times per year (Fall, Winter, and Spring) and has committees that work to develop our Youth and Young Adult ministries, Religious Education, Greek Education & Culture, Stewardship, fiscal responsibility, proper administration, and relationships with other Orthodox Churches and Christian denominations. Its members hail from all four regions of the Metropolis and represent a very experienced, educated, and innovative leadership team that aids the ministry of His Eminence and his staff and volunteers.
