I am Fr. John A. Peck, pastor of All Saints of North America Orthodox Church in Youngtown, AZ, a suburb of Phoenix, Arizona, and an Orthodox priest of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia.
The theme of this website is the Journey for those on the path to the Orthodox faith. With the help of Fr. Hans Jacobse, and the support of many like you, we continue our mission to reach out to the furthest corners of our nation and our world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and offer illumination on the path to His Church. It’s a well worn path.
It is the theme and premise of my priesthood that our Lord is calling all of America, and indeed the entire world, to the Orthodox Christian faith, and is building a more vital, more dynamic and more functional church on American soil, and that we are participants in this building. I write on the topics which advance this idea: preaching, teaching, practical missiology and their place in the American Orthodox Mission. I am particularly interested in the use of new media in Gospel outreach and evangelism.
Occasionally, I am invited to speak on topics related to the Mission of the Orthodox Church, the Underground Church, American Missiology, New Media and practical evangelism, Priestly Formation and Vocation.
