Welcome to MEFGOX!

The Mid-Eastern Federation of Greek Orthodox Church Musicians, lovingly nicknamed MEFGOX, is the oldest continuing church music federation in the Archdiocese of America, serving the Greek Orthodox Metropolises of Detroit and Pittsburgh since 1948.  The mission of our music ministry is to come before God's presence in liturgical worship, leading the congregation in singing to the Lord with praise and thanksgiving.

MEFGOX was established to provide an organized forum for all its musicians: clergy, chanters, choir directors, choir members, accompanists, youth music leaders, composers, and arrangers.  The purpose of the Federation is to help parishes develop their church music ministries by presenting training programs, providing resources, and awarding scholarships.  To this end, we encourage you to browse our site for helpful information and contact us to provide further assistance to you.

The 73rd Annual Convention of the Mid-Eastern Federation is currently scheduled for July 29 - August 1, 2021.  Host parish will be St. Paul Church in North Royalton, Ohio.
