FL, at Spectrum Films.
According to Nick Furris, "The Department of Youth and Young Adult
Ministries, headed by Fr. Mark Leondis, is offering the faithful youth and
parents of our Archdiocese vital, crucial and pertinent videos that have
the opportunity to transform their lives. It is my hope that every young
Orthodox Christian has the opportunity to view these videos".
This video was sponsored in part by a matching grant from the Leadership
100 Endowment Fund. Previous titles in the series include "Substance
Abuse: Our Kids Are Not Immune" and "Sexual Purity: Mind, Body and Soul".
