John and Ursula Orlando

On behalf of my wife Ursula, thanks for visiting us! Ursula and I are both retired from the United States Air Force after serving 20 years. I have been in pastoral ministry since 2011. I am currently serving as the pastor at Olive Street Presbyterian Church in Coatesville, PA. Prior to that, Ursula and I spent 2 1/2 years in Italy where I served as the pastor or New Life Church of Vicenza, which ministers primarily to the U.S. military community there. I graduated in 2011 with an MDiv in Pastoral Ministry from Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, where I am currently pursuing a Doctor of Ministry Degree. Ursula has served the body of Christ as an office manager, Children Ministries Director, and Women’s Ministry Leader. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and ESL (K-12) through Eastern University. We have one adult son, Michael, who lives nearby with his wonderful wife Laurel, and is a school teacher in Philadelphia. I am a big fan of the Philadelphia sports teams, and love to make (and eat!) homemade Italian food. Ursula loves to read, cook, try new recipes, travel, and garden. As you can see, she’s way more exciting than me!
