I am a protopresbyter in Jesus Christ’s Church, canonically ordained and serving in the Atlanta Metropolis of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, an eparchy of the Ecumenical Patriarchate. I serve as the proïstamenos (chief presbyter) at St. Nektarios Greek Orthodox Church in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The content of this site is my own, except where otherwise noted. Should it poorly reflect the Orthodox Christian Faith, it should not be seen as being representative of my parish, colleagues, superiors, or the ecclesiastical institutions to which I am bound, but of my own deficiencies.

In June of 2017, I was assigned to St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Shrine Church in Flushing, NY, where I was ordained to the Holy Diaconate by His Grace, Bishop Andonios of Phasiane, and in July to the Holy Presbyterate by His Eminence, Archbishop Demetrios, Geron (Elder) of America.

A lighthearted moment with Archbishop Demetrios, following ordination to the presbyterate (July 2017).

In October 2020, I was entrusted with the responsibility and dignity of serving as proïstamenos at St. Nektarios Church by His Eminence, Metropolitan Alexios of Atlanta.

Metropolitan Alexios presides over the Divine Liturgy (June 2021).

I am a 2014 graduate of Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology (M.Div.; Cert. Byzantine Music).

In addition to my pastoral responsibilities, I am a board member of the Liturgical Arts Academy, and have served as its chaplain since 2018. I also have produced some English adaptations and translations of Greek liturgical, ecclesiastical, and academic texts. I have participated in a number of choral performances and professional recordings of Orthodox liturgical (i.e. “Byzantine”) music.

I am a native of Portsmouth, Virginia. Presbytera Meredyth (Sophia) and I reside in Charlotte.

May God show compassion to us and bless us, and cause his face to shine upon us.
