Having worked for many years in Israel and Palestine, including negotiating the end of the Bethlehem siege in 2002, he now works almost exclusively in Iraq, earning him the nickname “The Vicar of Baghdad.”

In the face of significant threats, Canon White pastors one of the largest churches in Iraq, St George’s Baghdad. St George’s ministers to over 550 local Iraqi Christian families and operates outside the International Green Zone. Most of the congregation are women and children—widows and orphans—since many of the men have been killed in the decades of violence in Iraq.
