A study of nearly 800 Orthodox Christian Teens from across the United States and Canada is the focus of this project. The survey and its results are printed and examined in this work. Findings in this survey conclude that there is a direct relationship between adult/teen relationships and teen behavioral outcomes. The study examines evidence of links between alcohol consumption and cigarette smoking and other risk taking behaviors. This project identifies the many issues confronting Orthodox Christian Teens. Included is a summary of the rationale for youth ministry and the Orthodox Church’s teachings on some of the issues raised in the survey, to help youth workers begin to address these issues with teens.
