who we are

St. Mary and St. Mina Coptic Orthodox Church was founded in 2013. We are an apostolic church that dates back to the times of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and His Apostles. The Coptic Orthodox Church was founded by the the Apostle Saint Mark.

Our mission

We exist to transform lives in the Carolinas through an authentic relationship with Jesus Christ founded upon the life and teachings of the Orthodox faith
