“See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ.”
Members of the Oriental Orthodox diaspora:
You, have sacrificed much for the sake of a dream to provide your children with an education that is honest and worthy of the journey you have made; one that equips them to serve and minister to their communities through a variety of vocations. And although educational opportunities are ample today, the majority of academic institutions, especially universities, often neglect, if not prevent, building a bridge between the faith of your children and the professional degree they are pursuing.
Not Just A Seminary
We are in the process of building the first Oriental Orthodox University in the United States; not just a seminary, but a fully accredited academic institution with dedicated departments in the Humanities, Sciences, Theological Studies, and Business. Our Mission is to establish a community of Christian thinkers, where members can grow spiritually and academically, develop in character, and witness in the contemporary world. We believe in a future where our graduates are ready to impact their society by building bridges between Orthodox Christianity and their vocations. Imagine an academic institution that would place not just businessmen, professors, and scientists into the world but good Orthodox ones, ministering to their communities and lifting them up.
We currently have several cohorts of alumni graduates from our College of History, Philosophy and Divinity, and we are in the process of establishing the Naguib Sawiris School of Business under Agora University. We are also very proud to have received full accreditation as an academic university from the European Union and we are in the final stages of receiving similar accreditation in the United States.
How You Can Help
Agora University needs your help to grow and support the ambitious steps we are taking. We have partnered with visionaries like our Chairman, Naguib Sawiris, who has generously agreed to match your donations on an annual basis and we are hoping we can end the year with you as a committed supporter of this vision. Please join us, become a member today and invest in the academic and spiritual future of our youth and our communities. Your end-of-year contribution will help our community greatly!
