Fr. Dwight Longenecker was brought up in an Evangelical home in Pennsylvania. After graduating from the fundamentalist Bob Jones University with a degree in Speech and English, he went to study theology at Oxford University. Eventually Fr. Longenecker was ordained as an Anglican priest and served as a curate, a school chaplain in Cambridge and a country parson on the Isle of Wight.
Realizing that he and the Anglican Church were on divergent paths, in 1995 Fr. Longenecker and his family were received into the Catholic Church. For ten years they continued to live in England where he worked as a freelance writer and charity worker. Then, in 2006, the door opened for him to return to the USA and be ordained as a Catholic priest.
Fr. Longenecker now serves as Pastor of Our Lady of the Rosary Church in Greenville, South Carolina.
