An inquirer is a non-Orthodox person visiting an Orthodox Congregation regularly. Such inquirers are usually seeking to learn more about Orthodox Christianity, and are open to the possibly of becoming Orthodox Christians themselves. A person may remain an inquirer forever, but most will commonly move from this informal stage of inquiry to the more formal stage of becoming a Catechumen after, on average, a few months of regular attendance.

It is common for inquirers to attend faith formation classes given by their congregation's father along with the catechumens.
