About Me

Pastor of St. Raphael (of Brooklyn) Orthodox Mission Church in Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina.

Orthodox Christian priest (presbyter), husband, and father of 4 lovely children by the grace of God.

I grew up in the Coptic Orthodox Church and later was received into the Antiochian Orthodox Church.

Author of the book “Ask For the Ancient Paths: Discovering what Church is meant to be”  published by Ancient Faith Publishing.

While my hope is that all of my life would be a continuous offering to God, I know that I often fall short of this goal….I’m thankful for God’s abundant mercy!

This blog is intended to be a place to share weekly sermons and other offerings.  These are meant to challenge, edify and inspire Orthodox Christians and anyone else who may stumble across them.

May God be with you!

  1. Father bless,

    I am writing to you on behalf of the English version of the website of Sretensky Monastery in Moscow, orthochristian.com (also pravoslavie.ru/English). In case you are not familiar with our site, we strive to keep our readers updated daily on important news concerning the Orthodox Church worldwide, Christian persecution, Christian social issues, etc, as well as to present beneficial spiritual writings, homilies, lives of the Saints, etc.

    We hope to share the Orthodox faith with as many as possible, and we are always looking for new ways to develop our site and to reach new readers. We also appreciate the effort of yours and so many other websites that share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. With that in mind, we ask if you would kindly consider adding our banner to your site, linking to http://www.orthochristian.com. Please email me at jesse.dominck@stots.edu and I can send you our banner. If you could do this we would be very grateful, and we look forward to continuing to provide timely and soul-profiting works for those both in and outside of the Church.

    In Christ,

    Jesse Dominick

  2. Hello, My name is David Ramos. I am a fellow Christian author like yourself. I wanted to see if you would be interested in doing a swap.

    I would send you my book (Climbing with Abraham) so you could review it and in exchange I would review your most recent book (Ask for the Ancient Paths) on both my blog and on Amazon.

    Let me know if you are interested (ramosauthor.com/contact)! Have a blessed day!

  3. Hi Fr. James,

    I would like to ask about your move from the Coptic church to the church of Antioch. If you would be so kind to email me at paul.hanna@outlook.com I would much appreciate it.

    A Coptic Christian,
