I was baptized back in 1990, at the age of three. Unfortunately, my parents were not strong believers, so my childhood was far from the Church, and only rare visits to it fed my soul with spiritual bread. I have always been attracted by the Church, its life, activity. I’ve always thought a lot about it and dreamed of being a priest.
In 2009, I tried myself in the role of an altar boy, was close to the priests, thought about entering a seminary and even leaving for a monastery, and attended some courses. But something always pushed me away from Orthodoxy. For many reasons, I remained to be a believer at a distance.
At the same time, I began to study the teachings of Martin Luther and fell in love with Lutheranism. Also I visited the Catholic Church, read about Anglicanism. In 2011, I was elected as a pastor for a small Lutheran community, where I served until I left for the Philippines.
In 2014 I enrolled online seminary Christian Leaders Institute. At the moment I have a Diploma of Divinity and still continue to study and take more courses. In 2015 I joined the Evangelical Lutheran Church of the Augsburg Confession (ELCAC).
In 2018 I was ordained as a deacon, then as a presbyter, and then elevated to the rank of archpriest and then appointed as Bishop’s Old Catholic Vicar in the Philippines. Later on I was elected as a superintendent of the Foreign Church District (FCD) of the ELCAC.
