Ligonier Meeting.jpg|100px| SCOBA hierarchs at the Ligonier Meeting]]</div>The '''[[ Ligonier Meeting]]''' was a meeting of twenty-eight Orthodox Christian [[ bishop| hierarchs]] in North America, specifically those affiliated with [[SCOBA]], held [[November 30]] to [[December 2]], 1994, at the [[Antiochian Village]] in Ligonier, Pennsylvania. The bishops met together (many for the first time), held multiple sessions and presentations, and issued two statements, specifically on evangelism and on the notion of American Orthodox Christians being a "[[ diaspora]]. "
It was not strictly a council or [[synod]] '' per se'', but it had many of the characteristics of a synod, particularly the conciliarity or '' sobornost'' which results in the meeting of the Church' s bishops together in collegiality, referring to itself as an " episcopal assembly." The conference was presided over by His Eminence Archbishop [[Iakovos (Coucouzis) of America]], then primate of the [[Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America]] and [[SCOBA]] chairman.
