Fr. John Whiteford

My name is Fr. John Whiteford, and I pastor St. Jonah Orthodox Church, in Spring, Texas.

I was born in Riverside, California in 1966, and lived in Grand Terrace, California. My family moved to Murray, Kentucky in 1976, and then to Houston, Texas in 1978.

I was raised in the Church of the Nazarene, but began studying Orthodoxy while working on B.A. in Theology at Southern Nazarene University in Bethany, Oklahoma. I decided to convert not long after graduating from there in 1990. I was baptized at St. Benedict Orthodox Church in Oklahoma City on November 10th, 1990.

I wrote an article entitled Sola Scriptura: In the Vanity of Their Minds, which laid out many of the theological reasons for my conversion. This article was published in the Christian Activist in 1995, and then was published in a revised and somewhat expanded form by Conciliar Press in 1996, under the title Sola Scriptura: An Orthodox Analysis of the Cornerstone of Reformation Theology.

I married Wendy Woo in 1988, who was baptized in 1991 and took the name "Patricia". I now have two daughters, Elizabeth and Catherine, and you can see them all in this photo with Fr. Elias Wen (who turned 110 in 2006, reposed on June 9th, 2007, and was the oldest living priest in the Orthodox Church at that time).

I was ordained a deacon by Archbishop Hilarion on March 4th, 1995, and a priest by Bishop Gabriel on January 14th, 2001.
