Orthodox Christian Fellowship (OCF) is the official collegiate campus ministry program under SCOBA (the Standing Conference of Canonical Orthodox Bishops in the Americas). Our mission is to support fellowships on college campuses, whose members experience and witness to the Orthodox Christian Church through community life, prayer, service to others and study of the Faith.

Our national headquarters is located in Indianapolis, IN and supports 270 local university chapters across the U.S. and Canada.  In addition, they provide a variety of thoughtful and innovative programming, including regional training, annual conferences, and domestic and international service learning projects.

Our chapter at UIUC:

We meet every Tuesday night at the NIKA house (located on 2nd and John in Champaign) at 6pm.  We always start out with a dinner followed by activities/discussions, and we close each meeting with a prayer.  Interested in finding out more?  Feel free to contact ANY of our officer members!  We are always happy to talk to you and answer any questions!
