Borislav Dinkov, Pastoral Lay Assistant

Borislav grew up in the beautiful town of Asenovgrad, about three hours north of Thessaloniki, in the country of Bulgaria. He came to the U.S. to do his undergraduate degree in Computer Science and Business at the State University of New York at Albany. Upon graduation he worked at the New York State Department of Health assisting with data management research in the field of child development. After working shortly in the business world he decided to follow his calling and went to complete a Masters of Divinity degree at Holy Cross School of Theology.  During his studies he was a staff member of Camp Saint Paul in Litchfield, the Metropolis of Boston Camp up in New Hampshire and the Crossroad Institute. In the recent years he has been a part of the Bible Study instructors at Fanari Camp. In his free time, Borislav enjoys hiking, practicing martial arts, and playing chess but what is most enjoyable of all for him is reading books on spiritual and yet practical matters.

To his greatest surprise life brought him to Chicago to help rebuild the youth programs at Saint Nectarios in Palatine, IL. After a successful year in the parish he was brought up to work on a project at the Metropolis of Chicago. Nonetheless, parish ministry remains his focus and he came to work at the Annunciation Milwaukee where he works with the youth and manages the office. In his spare time he enjoy hiking and skydiving. He would not say no to a good company and a game of chess while sipping a cup of Greek mountain tea. While in the parish, he will be working closely with father John in helping him minister to the beautiful community of the Annunciation. Please stop by the office to introduce yourself or say hi when you see him in church.

He received a certificate in Byzantine Music from Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology, and is the author of a book of Byzantine chants in English titled The Musical Ark, available through the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese.
