Rev. Fr. George S. Zervos, Proistamenos
He was elected a member of the Association of Orthodox Theologians.
In the nineties he transferred to the Atlanta Diocese, where he was voted Vice-President of the Orthodox Priests as well as representative of the Southern Clergy for the Metropolis. In the year 2000, he was awarded the Saint Andrew Medal of honor at the St. James Catholic Church in Myrtle Beach, SC, by the Monsignor of the Church for his ongoing Ecumenical efforts. After being instrumental in the rebuilding of the St. John Greek Orthodox church, he was assigned to the Detroit Diocese under our beloved Metropolitan Nicholas.
He was elevated to the rank of Protopresbyter in 1984 and most recently served St. Nicholas Church, in Jamestown, New York.
He is the author of two Bi-lingual liturgical books; The 200 page "Funeral Services of the Greek Orthodox Church" and his recently published 275 page "Ieratikon--the Sacred Preparatory Services for the Celebration of the Divine Liturgy", which is used by many Priests throughout America, but more importantly is being used as a teaching tool for the Seminarians.
Despite these accomplishments, he believes his most important accomplishments are being a Parish Priest for these past 45 years, a husband to Presvytera Anne for 46 years, and a father to his three children, Stella Maria, Spero George, and Sofia Elizabeth. He is also blessed with two grandsons, Nicholas Theodore and George Alexander.
