Elaine Piniat is a pre-field missionary with the Orthodox Christian Mission Center and will be serving in Sweden. She'll be using 10 years of journalism experience to preach the Gospel and spread the message of Orthodoxy in the digital world. Her efforts will support the Metropolis of Sweden and its ministries, as she does in-person outreach and builds a multi-platform online presence that inspires parishioners to grow spiritually. She also hopes to encourage those she meets in the broader community, as 73 percent of Swedes say they're either "not religious" or "convinced atheists," according to a Gallup poll.
