BIO

Archpriest Chad Hatfield is the first Chancellor of St. Vladimir's Seminary. The SVOTS Board of Trustees, during the most recent Dean's search, saw the need for a revision of the seminary's governance model. Fr. Chad came to SVOTS from St. Herman Seminary in Alaska, where he was serving as the Dean. He presently serves as a member of the Metropolitan Council of the Orthodox Church in America (OCA).

As Chancellor he works closely with Archpriest John Behr, the Dean, and the Executive Chair of the SVOTS Board, Mr. Alex Machaskee. Together they use a unique conciliar design to engage the seminary faculty and staff in serving the needs of everyone in the seminary community and the wider Orthodox Church. His experience in various pastoral, teaching and administrative roles, spread over some 30 years of ordained ministry, are now blended into the Chancellor's ministry at SVOTS.

His wife, Matushka Thekla, is excited to be part of seminary life where she is the Coordinator for the St. Juliana Society. An iconographer and graphic designer, she is currently finishing her certification as a botanical illustrator. They are the parents of Jason, who is married to Kasey, and who are the parents of Ryan, Morgan, and Braedon Richard. They live in Austin, Texas where Jason is a physician. Sean is the youngest Hatfield son, married to Maggie, and the couple lives in Wichita, Kansas, where Sean practices law.

Fr. Chad was ordained to the diaconate and the priesthood by His Grace, Bishop Basil of Wichita.
