Metropolitan +Vladimir II was Born 12, 29, 1946 to Robert W and Agnes H Sehorn, in Cabarrus County, North Carolina. A 1965 graduate of Harrisburg High School, and 1966 graduate of Charlotte Business College. I was raised Southern Baptist, but my hunger for more accurate ways of worship began when the "pastor" and the chairman of the Board of Deacons came to fists in the "pulpit". I was married and attended the Garr Memorial Church, where I received the call to the ministry. My wife did not want to be a pastor's wife. This eventually led to our separation because when God calls, one must answer. Entered my journey to Orthodoxy and finally came to THEOCACNA. Then American Orthodox Catholic and Apostolic Church. Now in my 33rd year of my episcopacy, now serve ROCIA as Chancellor to Metropolitan Nestor, Metropolitan of North America.
