Father Jordan grew up in Ft. Worth, Texas. He graduated from Amon Carter Riverside High School. He attended Texas Christian University, and graduated from The University of Texas at Arlington with a B.A. in History in 1971.
He graduated from The General Theological Seminary of The Episcopal Church in New York City with a Master of Divinity degree in 1974 (Bishop Iker was a classmate). He has done further post graduate work at Pusey House, Oxford, and St. George's College, Jerusalem.
Growing up in an unchurched home, he longed for something more. God gently and patiently, over a period of years, revealed Himself to him. He was baptized and confirmed in St. John's Church, Ft. Worth while in High School. While at TCU he managed St. Anne's Bookstore at All Saints' Church where he worked with rector, Fr. James P. DeWolfe Jr. Fr. DeWolfe became a mentor, along with Fr. George Acker, Rector of St. Timothy's Church, Ft. Worth. These holy priests helped him discern his vocation to the Priesthood.
Fr. Jordan was Curate of St. James' Church, Dallas, Rector of St. Paul's Church, Gainesville Texas, Rector of the Church of the Holy Cross, Dallas, and Rector of St. John's Church, Dallas. He retired for the first time in 2005, but was asked by Bishop Iker to become Vicar of St. Joseph's Church, Grand Prairie.
He is now happy to be the Assisting Priest at St. Mark's Church, Arlington. He is married to June Louise Nickerson. They have five children and nine grandchildren, with the tenth on the way! In December he will celebrate the 40th anniversary of his Ordination to the Sacred Priesthood. His hobbies include reading, golf and travel. He has led pilgrimages to England, Spain and Portugal.
