    Fr. Daniel Hickman first attended St. Stephen’s as an inquirer in 2004. After completing his studies at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago and Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, he was drawn to the ancient tradition and spiritual life of Orthodox Christianity. Fr. Daniel was received into the Church in 2005 and began studies at St. Vladimir’s Seminary in New York the following year. He was ordained to the priesthood in 2009 and was assigned to St. Stephen’s in December of that year.

    Fr. Daniel is dedicated to serving the faithful at St. Stephen’s through administering the sacraments, teaching the faith, and offering prayer and pastoral support for those in need. He is married to Marcella Hickman and they have four children – Gabriel, Cassiana, Jude, and Peter.
