Building Temples Prayer

“O Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy upon us and upon this parish community. Help us to establish a place worthy of  Your worship, and to build a Temple to Your glory, first and foremost in our own hearts. Make us a dwelling place of  Your All-Holy Spirit. Guide our steps in the development of our property and send to us, O Lord, benefactors, leaders, designers, iconographers, builders, contractors and skilled workers. Grant us favor with local authorities and guide us in building community with our neighbors. Provide the means and make the impossible possible through Your own great benefaction, through the prayers of  Your Most Pure Mother, the Holy Apostles, and of all the saints. Amen.”

John and his wife, Debbie have been married for over 40 years and have been members of All Holy Spirit from the very beginning in 2006. John was received into the Orthodox Faith through the sacrament of chrismation over 20 years ago. Leaving behind Debbie's family history of four generations at St John the Baptist Greek Orthodox Church in search of our vision of expanding and growing the Orthodox Faith in Omaha, in a new Greek Orthodox Church was a very difficult decision. John is serving on the All Holy Spirit Parish Council for a second term. John’s first term was from 2011-2016, and John served as President during a portion of that time. Currently, John is the Chairman of the Real Estate Committee, involved in the development process of our new Church located at 193rd and Harney, and a member of the Strategic Planning Committee. In John’s professional life, he was a founding Principal of RDG Planning and Design, a national architectural design business. Currently John is a Principal Emeritus, having stepped away from the firm in 2018 after 47 years of service with the same organization. John and Debbie thoroughly enjoy spending time together with their extended family which includes their two children, spouses, four grandchildren and Debbie’s mother and father, all of whom live in Omaha. The Birge’s also enjoy traveling with friends and attending concerts and basketball games. John also enjoy golfing, bicycling, watching basketball and discussing coaching/culture strategies with whoever he can coerce into listening.
