Philip Silouan Thompson has worked as an editor, a janitor, an internet system administrator, a Web content consultant, and an Evangelical pastor. In 1999 he was received into the Orthodox Church.

In 2012 he was ordained to the diaconate, and in 2014 to the priesthood. For seven years he lived in the Philippines, planting Orthodox churches and building the mission that has since grown into the Diocese of the Philippines and Vietnam. Covid restrictions closed the Philippine border, so since 2020, he has been associate pastor at Saint Silouan Orthodox Church, Walla Walla Washington.

Father Silouan also enjoys speaking of himself in the third person.
