Parish Future Planning Committee

Parish Survey Completed.  Thank you!

We had over 130 participants who filled out our parish survey.  This was an overwhelming response!  We are pleased to report that our Parish sentiment is unified around the need for a new home to fulfill our mission and serve our ministries.

 

Highlights of the Survey:

- The top three things our parish liked were 1) Our Clergy, 2) The people, and 3) our Location

- 85% of survey takers are satisfied or very satisfied overall

- A third of the survey participants are new to our community in the last three years

- Sunday School and Stewardship were are top participated ministries

Results of the survey are being shared at the Parish General Assembly on June 2, 2024.  If you would like to view the full results of the survey, please contact the FPC at the email address below and we will reach out to you and send you a copy.

As a result of the survey, we are in the planning stages of launching a Capital Campaign to raise more funds while we search for a property to be our new home.  We will begin work on the campaign over the summer and launch shortly thereafter.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out at the email address below.

Thank You!

Our Parish Future Planning Committee is charged with searching vigorously for a property and location that will help our community to succeed and flourish.  To follow this vision, we work closely with the Parish Council and all organizations to solicit input from our community as we explore options for our Church's future.

Our primary goal is to find a permanent home that will allow our growing spiritual family the location, space, and facilities to enable all of our Parish ministries to fulfill their role in connecting our community and helping Holy Apostles become a true, welcoming, beacon of our Greek Orthodox Faith.

We are currently exploring properties that meet the following criteria:

  • Geographic area bordering Route 28 to the east, Potomac river/White's Ferry to the north, Braddock Rd to the south, and Route 15 to the West.

    This area has been chosen based on the location of our parish families while giving us a range of available options that we can finance.
     

  • We are looking for properties that we can economically support given our current building fund resources and the current and growing size of our parish in the middle of rapidly growing Loudoun County.
     

  • We are looking for properties where we can have approximately 15,000 square feet to provide space for our Church (Narthex, Nave, Altar), A social hall, classrooms, offices, and the facilities that would allow us to hold large Parish events including a Greek Festival.

Our committee has grown to meet the task of organizing and fulfilling our responsibilities.

We have 4 subcommittees working on the following areas:

  • Long-Term Operating Plan

  • Capital Fundraising

  • Site Selection and Acquisition

  • Parish Communications

We welcome assistance and involvement of any parish member!  The following people are currently working on the committee:

Greg Joiner, Bill Bakopanos, Ron Baldinger, Mina Baldinger, Greg Cherpes, Dean Coulopoulos, Dean Economou, Rami Elsarraf, Jim Glakas, Andrew Kaffes, Nikoleta Lelis, Robert Maalouf, Bill Papanastasiou, Nicholas Spyros, Maria Zangos, George Pappas
