Prior to becoming dean of St. George’s, he was canon pastor of the Arabic congregation at the cathedral from 2005 to 2012. He was educated at Rhodes University in South Africa and holds masters and doctorate degrees from Virginia Theological Seminary.

In 2021 he will become the diocesan bishop upon the retirement of the Archbishop Suheil Dawani.

“Archbishop Suheil S. Dawani invites “clergy, parishes, institutions, and all believers—to pray for the ministry, witness and mission of the Church, and for our bishop-elect and his family.

“May God pour out His Holy Spirit upon him and enrich him with His grace so that he can continue to serve the Church for the glory of God, the furthering of His kingdom, and the service of all.”
