Meet the Staff

Holy Trinity Publications works under the guidance and with the blessing of the abbot of Holy Trinity Monastery, Bishop Luke (Murianka) of Syracuse. He has assigned the day-to-day oversight of Holy Trinity Publications to Reader Nicholas Chapman, who coordinates a team of monastics, local Orthodox clergy and lay workers. We also work with many different external partners and helpers, recognizing that the world of modern publishing is so diverse that it is no longer possible to have all necessary skills in house.

Let’s introduce our core publishing staff:

Reader Nicholas Chapman

Director of Publications

Reader Nicholas has been employed in publishing and bookselling for over twenty years both in the UK and USA, prior to which he worked in accounting and business consultancy. He was received into the Orthodox Church in 1985 and has served the Church in a variety of roles for almost thirty years in a number of different countries. Since 2009 he has been the Director of Holy Trinity Publications, in which capacity he has edited a diverse range of books, set up accounting systems and been actively involved in marketing and establishing distribution networks for our titles.

Rev. Protodeacon Peter Markevich

Sales and Marketing Manager

Protodeacon Peter was born and raised within the Russian Orthodox community in the San Francisco Bay Area. After graduating from the University of California, Davis he came to Jordanville as a seminarian in 2009. He began working in Holy Trinity Bookstore whilst still a seminarian and soon became its manager. He was ordained to the diaconate upon completion of his studies in 2013 and assigned to serve at the monastery. In 2014 he assumed his current position with Holy Trinity Publications whilst also teaching Liturgics at Holy Trinity Seminary. In no small part due to his efforts in expanding the work of Holy Trinity Publications this will become his full time job in September 2019.

Mrs. Nina Chapman

Editorial and Production Manager

As with her husband Reader Nicholas, Nina has worked in publishing and bookselling for over twenty years both in the UK and USA Prior to which she worked both as a teacher of English as a foreign language and in a variety of customer service roles for large corporations.

Hieromonk Anatoly studied at Holy Trinity Seminary and entered the monastic life after graduation. In 2011 he was ordained to the priesthood and serves regularly in the monastery cathedral. His work in typesetting is focused primarily on our liturgical and Slavonic language publications.

Monk Innocent

After finishing a design degree at the Ontario College of Art and Design in Canada, Fr Innocent moved to Jordanville in 1990 to study at Holy Trinity Seminary and to live the monastic life.
