My name is David B. Keim. I am a deacon of the Antiochian Archdiocese, attached to All Saints Orthodox Church (official website) in Raleigh, NC. I was ordained to the diaconate in October 2004 at the hand of His Grace, the Right Reverend ANTOUN, Bishop of Miami and the Southeast.
I have one wife, Shamassy Larissa (a/k/a Shell), and six lovely children. In my professional life, I am an attorney, practicing law in-house for a large software company.
I have law degrees from the Marshall-Wythe School of Law at the College of William and Mary (official website) (LL.M., 1992) and Regent University School of Law (official website) (J.D., 1990). I have an undergraduate degree from Gardner-Webb University (official website) (B.A., 1987). I am currently in the third and final year of the St. Stephen's Course in Orthodox Theology.
I am especially interested in the liturgical life of the Church and the ministry of the deacon. Most of my contributions to OrthodoxWiki center on these themes.
- As one of my projects for the St. Stephen's Course, I developed DISMISSAL, a Microsoft Windows-based application that generates the dismissals of various services for any day of the year. This application is freeware.
