Featured Author of the Antiochian Archdiocese: Fr. Constantine Nasr
Fr. Constantine Nasr has served more than twenty-five years as the pastor of St. Elijah Church in Oklahoma City, OK. A graduate of St. Vladimir's Seminary, Fr. Constantine is a pioneer in American Orthodoxy in terms of Missions and Evangelism. During the past twenty-five years, because of his efforts and the efforts of those he recruited to assist him, St. Elijah has had the joy of welcoming hundreds of people who have embraced the Holy Orthodox Faith. By God's grace, Fr. Constantine has helped establish numerous missions in Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas and Colorado, and has helped train many men who have become priests, deacons, sub-deacons and readers.
Fr. Constantine has published five books to assist his brothers the clergy: The Bible in the Liturgy; Journey through the Divine Liturgy; Resource Book for Mission and Evangelism; Memory Eternal: Selected Eulogies; and A Practical Guide for Priests & Pastors. He has just completed the first draft of his life-long project, Antony Bashir: Founding Father of the American Orthodox Church, and he hopes to write a book on marriage. He has lectured at our Orthodox seminaries and parishes in the United States and Canada, and he broadcasts the Spread the Word podcast on Ancient Faith Radio.
Standing beside him, helping him to carry the weight of the ministry, have been his wife Sharon, his children Constantine and wife Mandy, and Philip who have borne the weight of the ministry with him.
