PATRONAGE PROGRAM

Thank you for considering becoming a patron of The Collective Wisdom Project…I would be honored to have you on this journey with me to contribute to the ongoing missionary and cultural work of the project. Monthly live Q&A’s and early access are just a couple of the perks of patronage!

History of the Project
I started this project in 2010 with the desire to use video to explore and convey the timeless truths of Orthodox Christianity. In July of 2018 I finally began releasing weekly videos and since that time, the channel has grown to over 5,000 subscribers with nearly 230,000 views, the most watched video having been seen over 30,000 times!

What’s Next?
The next step is to secure the financial stability of the project. This will enable me to:

  • Increase video releases to two (or more!) a week
  • Make video content available in podcast format
  • Begin the process of planning and producing short form Orthodox documentaries
  • Upgrade audio and video equipment to produce higher quality videos

Patronage Perks
All patrons will receive:

  • Access to monthly live Q&A
  • Early access to many videos

Higher tiers will receive:

  • The opportunity to ask questions in advance for the monthly Q&A
  • Occasional phone/online calls with me
  • Opportunities to propose and to vote on the subject of some videos
  • A signed and/or digital copy of my book, Precious Vessels of the Holy Spirit: The Lives and Counsels of Contemporary Elders of Greece
  • The opportunity to collaborate with me on the creation of one or more future videos
