St. Athanasius Orthodox Christian Church

From October 6-8th, St. Athanasius Orthodox Christian Church is reviving its Sacred Arts Festival. The guest speaker for the 3-day festival, Rev. Turbo Qualls, currently lives in Kansas City, Missouri, where he is the pastor of a growing inner-city church. But Father Turbo is “coming home,” in a sense.  He spent many years in Orange County, CA, as a (well-known) tattoo artist turned Evangelical youth pastor turned Eastern Orthodox priest.  Fr. Turbo’s YouTube podcast, “The Royal Path,” has a large following of young adults and spiritual seekers.

People of all faiths and those who are seekers are welcome to attend the festival. The weekend begins on Friday night (Oct. 6) with an opening presentation by Father Qualls in which he will share the story of his own spiritual journey.  It continues on Saturday afternoon (Oct. 7) with two more sessions by Fr. Qualls and ends on Sunday afternoon with a choral concert of sacred music at 3 pm.

Tickets may be purchased at the door, but pre-registration is recommended.  Online registration is here:
