Title: Greek Evangelical Fellowship
Post by: sinjinsmythe on April 05, 2003, 04:42:55 PM
I ran across this group on while surfing the internet. Here is ther site:http://netministries.org/see/churches.exe/ch18299 (http://netministries.org/see/churches.exe/ch18299) Does anyone know much about them. Here is a description from their site:

We are a Ministry Associated with the North American Synod of the Greek Evangelical Church (A Reformed Church Body) with its roots in both the 16th century reformation (Luther, Calvin Zwingly) as well the Reformation which took place in the Greek speaking world by such great leaders as the Orthodox Patriarch Cyril Loucaris and Zacharias Gerganos.

Based solely on that, these sound like vagantes.

Cyril Lucaris was a Calvinist, though.  Read The Great Church in Captivity (http://The Great Church in Captivity) by Runciman for a well-told and highly entertaining account (at some times very sad, though) of all the intrigue that occurred at that time between Jesuits, Protestants, and rival Patriarchs of Constantinople.
