Spark is an Orthodox Christian News Portal that allows you to take action.

The Spark News has been developed tirelessly by the Spark OCN team that include: Johanna Phillips, Michael Otte, Kali Godshall, Kyra Godshall, Nicholas Kachur and Juan Gabriel Quinodoz.

This project also could not have come about without the support of the Orthodox Christian Network ( and the Spark OCN executive team including Charles Lelon, Joanna Read, Nick Mavrick and Garry Paxinos.

A special thanks to all the beta testers, especially the ever-vigilant Mat. Irene Phillips.

Minor fixes

I no longer seem to be able to share articles through texting, I appear to be able to send a prayer request and I'm not on Facebook. If I click the "Share" button it just closes the bottom right menu thing.

Orthodox News - SparkOCN

Finally, an app that brings me news from all over the Orthodox world. I check it daily now. Not only are daily devotionals and bible studies provided by priests, but there is news about suffering Christians. The app makes it easy to share articles and send prayer requests for those who are persecuted. I've recommended it to several friends. They need more coverage of the persecutions in the Middle East and in China. They also need to provide more ways to support our brethren. Great start, just do more soon!

Can't log back into app

I upgraded to an iPhone 7Plus and now my app won't let me log onto Spark. I can't even create a new account. I always receive a message that my data isn't in the proper format.
