ORTHODOX CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP AT STANFORD (OCF) is a pan-Orthodox organization dedicated to exploring the Orthodox Christian faith, fostering spiritual growth for Orthodox Christians, and exposing the campus to the faith, cultures, and customs that are uniquely Orthodox. OCF is a dynamic group of students from many different backgrounds who share a common desire to learn more about the 2000-year traditions of the Orthodox Church. Our goal is to get you involved with your Orthodox family and help you grow in Christ while you are at Stanford.
OCF is a campus ministry that provides fellowship and aims to foster spiritual growth for Orthodox Christians in the Stanford community. All those interested in learning about Orthodoxy, including non-Orthodox, are welcome!
