About the Editor of Orthodox Ethos
The Managing Editor of Orthodox Ethos is John Coffman.
Born on his family farm in Central Illinois, John always had an interest in Scripture, theology, and history which God used to lead him to Holy Orthodoxy. He was baptized into the Body of Christ at Holy Cross Antiochian Orthodox Church in Yakima, Washington, in 2010. After some years he was asked by several clergy to enter into the Antiochian House of Studies, at which his projects focused on catechetical work, culminating in a catechetical analysis of the Wisdom of Sirach in the form of daily readings during Great Lent. After spending about a year of struggle at St. Anthony’s Greek Orthodox Monastery in Arizona and Philotheou Monastery on Mt. Athos, he received a blessing to return to the world, marry and finish his Master’s work by writing a thesis entitled: Orthodox Catechism in a Neo-Pagan World: Catechizing Today’s Idolatrous World Following the Example of our Holy Fathers. The text is soon to be published by the Antiochian House of Studies Press. In October of 2020, John became the Assistant General Manager at Uncut Mountain Press. Shortly thereafter he became a senior editor at The Orthodox Ethos. He is now tasked with the launch of the new Uncut Mountain Press website and book releases, while also developing, editing and publishing articles based upon or by the saints, elders, and ascetics of our time for the benefit and upbuilding of the faithful.
