Identifying the Group Leader:
As this ministry is a mentoring program, it would be ideal for a Mentor Couple to be the ministry group leaders. Mentoring Couples are couples who have been married for preferably ten years or longer, have a loving relationship with each other, and are living out the sacraments of our Orthodox faith. However, if it is not possible for a Mentor Couple to lead the group, a newly married couple may act as the ministry team leader. All leaders need approval from the presiding priest.
