Rev. Fr. Stepanos Dingilian, Ph.D. (pen name 'Der Stepanos Dingilian'), is a parent, a pastor in the Armenian Apostolic Church, an educator, and a family counselor.
Since receiving his Ph.D. in Theology and Personality Development in 1996, from the School of Theology at Claremont, Dr. Der Stepanos has been striving to spiritually strengthen family and marital relationships. In addition to his practice, he has authored a book, A Spiritual Journey Through The Holy Badarak, that helps persons and families better understand the ways in which the Church services enrich the life of the faithful. In addition he publishes a quarterly periodical entitled 'Hope for the Family.' He has also established a website at 'www.' Both, the periodical and the website, address the contemporary spiritual issues faced by persons and families.
Dr. Dingilian also has a Masters of Arts Degree in Pastoral Counseling (from the School of Theology at Claremont), and a Masters of Divinity (from St. Nersess Armenian Seminary and St. Vladimir's Orthodox Seminary). In addition to his clinical training as a counselor, he has conducted the Clinical Pastoral Education program at Sloan Kettering Memorial Hospital and New York Hospital, both in New York City.
After the 1988 devastating earthquake in Armenia, Dr. Der Stepanos had the opportunity to participate in the healing process by traveling to Armenia. For two years, he participated in the counseling process for families in the earthquake stricken areas. In addition, during his stay, he taught at the Seminary of Holy Etchmiadsin and trained Sunday School teachers in the capital of Armenia, Yerevan.
Prior to embarking on his calling in ministry, he received his Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering from the Ohio State University in 1975. For the next twelve years he held engineering and management positions in companies such as the Procter & Gamble Company, and industries such as the Aerospace and Automotive. Eventually, he established his own Engineering Consulting firm.
Currently, Dr. Der Stepanos and his wife, Yeretzgeen Mariam, live in Irvine, California. Yeretzgeen Mariam is a teacher especially trained in child psychology, with emphasis for applications in the field of linguistics. They have two daughters, Kayane and Armine, who bring joy, laughter, and God's blessings to their life. Generally speaking, the family travels together for camp presentations, retreats, and workshops.

Some quotes from this book:

"We have greater influence upon our teenagers than we think, and are led to believe."
"God would not have given us our teenager unless He was confident that we could raise him or her!"
"The desire to protect our family, and to maintain peace and order within it is not just a selfish human endeavor, but rather a loving selfless act in the service of God!"
"The relationship with our teen is eternal. Our teen will never have any other relationship like ours. No one will spend as much time with our offspring as we do!"
"Let the teen-Christ become your teen's role model!"
"We can begin sensing peace in our relationship with God only as we commence establishing peace with our offspring and our parents."

The Armenian Apostolic Church Clergy Conference in New York on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Diocese in America provided the setting in which this Guide began taking shape.
It was clear from the input of fellow pastors that the Divine Liturgy, the Holy Badarak plays a key role in the relationship between God and the Armenian people. It was just as clear that Church service attendees are standing outside the spiritual peripheries and in frustration watching a most important spiritual event in their life of which they comprehend very little.
There were discussions about language, length of the Badarak, setting, and physical participation within the services. Yet it was unanimous that of all these issues, the most important is the inability of most faithful to fully comprehend the spiritual movement within the Badarak, grow within it, and allow it to systematically enrich their lives outside of the Service. In other words, too many of the faithful are unable to experience the fullness of the Badarak as a means of worshipping God as opposed to an elaborate ritual. Even when some are inspired by the Badarak, many find it difficult to make it means of devoting themselves individually and communally to the Christian Way ofLife.
It is out of this context that compiling this Devotional Guide came forth. This is one of the first attempts at providing a path for the spiritual journey through the Holy Badarak, and we hope it will not be the last one. The challenge to make the Badarak spiritually uplifting and enriching is the responsibility of both clergy and laity, of those who conduct the services and those who partake of them. The more successful we are in attaining this objective, the greater will be the effectiveness of the Church in her mission to guide and unite the faithful.
