   Drs. David & Mary Ford were married in May 1988, and have both been teaching at St. Tikhon’s Seminary in South Canaan, Pennsylvania, since 1989, where David is now Professor of Church History and Mary is now Associate Professor of New Testament. In 1994 they adopted their only child, a daughter, from Russia.
   David was raised in Wilmington, DE. He has studied history and the Early Church extensively, receiving his Ph.D. at Drew University in Madison, NJ, in 1984. Through his study, he realized that only Holy Orthodoxy has preserved the fullness of the Christian Faith, and was received into the Orthodox Church in January of 1980, at St. Anthony’s Antiochian Church in Tulsa, OK.
   Mary was born and raised in Nashville, TN, and converted to Orthodoxy in 1977 while attending graduate school in Great Britain, receiving her Ph.D. in Theology from the University of Kent, Canterbury, England.
   Between them, they have published numerous articles, essays, and books. In 1994 St. Tikhon’s Seminary Press published Marriage as a Path to Holiness: Lives of Married Saints, which was co-authored by David and Mary Ford. This book was revised and expanded in 2013.
