Fixed a lacking bracket and moved to Non-Orthodox category. I think the Orthodoxy in America tag could be misleading by implying that this group is Orthodox, but I left it.
{{orthodoxyinamerica}}The '''Evangelical Orthodox Church''' (also known as the ''EOC'') is a non-canonical group with roots in evangelical Protestantism which incorporates elements of Orthodoxy as well as Roman Catholicism, Lutheranism, and Anglicanism in its worship and doctrine.
The greater part of the church, under the leadership of then-bishop [[Peter Gillquist]], was received by [[chrismation]] into communion with the [[Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America|Antiochian Archdiocese]] in 1987, becoming the Antiochian Evangelical Orthodox Mission (AEOM), a distinctive group of parishes which has since been regularized into normal status within the archdiocese. Many of the former leaders of the EOC have become active and well-known leaders in the archdiocese, especially in missions work.
