He currently serves on the boards of the Children’s Hunger Relief Fund, St. Lazarus Mission, and the Huffman Historic Neighborhood Association. In 1998, Fr. Wayne co-founded Dominion Academy of Dayton where he serves as Priest-in-Charge. His scholarly interests lie in liturgics, Anglican studies, and the Christian ascetical tradition, and in 2015, he was accepted as an oblate by the Order of Saint Benedict.  Fr. Wayne has four children and four grandchildren and lives with his wife, Sandy.


Fr. Isaac Chavez, Assistant to the Rector


Fr. Isaac was ordained to the clergy in May 2015 after serving in ministerial roles for over a decade. Upon becoming an Anglican in 2009, he sensed a calling into Holy Orders. Dcn. Isaac is in possession of the coveted Master of Theology (Th.M) in Church History and Christian Spirituality from Dallas Theological Seminary. In addition to being a specialist in patristic writings (especially St. Ignatius), he demonstrated the heart of a deacon by completing a year-long hospital chaplain residency. Fr. Isaac was ordained a Priest/Presbyter in the Summer 2016.  He is married to Sarah Jean Chavez, and they have four children, Priscilla, Rose, Jude, and Ruth.
