One of the biggest issues I am having in my move towards the Orthodox Church is whether or not to invest in the Coptic Orthodox Church or an Eastern Orthodox Church (specifically the Antiochian Orthodox Church). My difficulty is that, although I currently live near a current Coptic Orthodox Church, there are only pockets of Coptic churches throughout. My fear is that I would join the Coptic Orthodox Church and then in a year (when I finish my Master's degree) I will have to move somewhere where there is no Coptic Orthodox Church nearby. If this case arose I would not be able to attend the liturgy or participate in the sacrament of the Lord's Supper.
However, there are many Antiochian Orthodox Churches across the U.S. and if I had to move where one was not close by I could always attend another Eastern Orthodox Church as they are not divided as are the Eastern and Oriental Orthodox churches.
What advice would you all lend me in making this decision?
