Delhi Gospel Convention (DGC) is the most sought after annual event held in the Diocese of Delhi and probably the only annual Gospel convention in English among all dioceses of the Orthodox church in India.
Started in the year 2013, the idea of such a Convention in the National Capital Region of Delhi became a reality with the Indian Orthodox Diaspora, Diocese of Delhi joining hands with the Forum of Orthodox Christians in United States (FOCUS), a platform for the working professionals and MGOCSM alumni youths in the North-East and South-West American Diocese of the Malankara (Indian) Orthodox Church. Resource persons came from the American dioceses of the Indian Orthodox Church. FOCUS supported the travel and logistics of the resource person for the first ever Delhi Gospel Convention (DGC) held in St Mary’s Orthodox Cathedral, Delhi in the year 2013.
Over the years the Convention has become an opportunity for the MGOCSM alumni, families and working professionals in the Diocese and invitees from other Dioceses to interact, introspect and meditate on the word of God through interactive sessions and panel discussions.
Diocesan Metropolitan and the President of Indian Orthodox Diaspora movement His Grace Dr. Youhanon Mar Demetrios has been an inspiring pillar of guidance and continuous support for the Delhi Gospel Convention since its inception
