We are a small group of Orthodox Christians who desire to create quality resources to serve families, schools, and local church communities. Dr. Mark Tarpley is the lead educator and author of the books.
Dr. Mark Tarpley earned his B.A. and Ph.D. in Religious Studies from Southern Methodist University, and his M.Div. from St. Tikhon’s Theological Seminary. He had the privilege to work under the guidance of Dr. Christopher Veniamin, Professor of Patristics at St. Tikhon’s Theological Seminary and Dean of the Antiochian House of Studies, for both his M.Div. thesis and doctoral dissertation. His graduate work focused on the Church Fathers in the context of marriage, family, and education.
Professionally, Mark has taught in public and private schools and holds a teaching certificate in math 8-12. His instructional experience includes middle school, high school, undergraduate, master’s level, and doctoral level courses. He has taught a variety of courses including upper school math courses, Patristic and Medieval history, Latin, logic, moral theology, the problem of evil, and comparative studies of St. John Chrysostom and St. Gregory the Theologian on family, marriage, and children.
