John W. Snow III
Lake Stevens, WA
John is a Culinary Specialist First Class in the United States Navy. He was brought up in a very religious household within the Church of Christ denomination, but began to question doctrine very early on. In 2006, he officially dedicated himself to the Old Ways and tried to gain as much knowledge of the history and modern interpretations of Paganism and Pagan society. In 2010, John joined the Navy to originally be a CTI (linguist). In 2012, he became an Interfaith Minister and (later that year) began to study the more Nordic branches of Paganism alongside his Roman studies. In 2018, John first joined the Troth and in early 2019, John joined The Asatru Community.
He has gone through the TAC’s Clergy Training Program to earn his Goði certification, and he is a TAC Military Ambassador.
John is currently stationed in Everett, WA with his husband and son.

Hail and merry met! I'm Topher W. Henry, and I live in Friendship, Indiana. I'm the President of TAC as well as a clergy member.
I've been a practicing pagan/heathen since 1985 and a member of TAC since 2015.
I'm proud to say I'm the first graduate of the TAC Clergy Program and I'm excited for the opportunity to lead that fine program and help new clergy members learn the Old Ways. I have over 2 years’ experience as an ambassador for TAC and was the Director of the Program for more than a year.
I'm a veteran of the USMC. I have a bachelor’s degree in human resource management and I currently work as a data analyst for a grocery broker in Cincinnati. I'm married to my lovely Witchy Wifey Liz, who's also a charter member. I have a 16-year-old daughter who's currently attending a school of the arts for theater and who tolerates all the “weird” stuff Dad does.
As the President of TAC, my goals and vision can be best described with one word that means a great deal to me…FRITH. I'll build frith within our community, and outside of our community as well. I'll be extending offers of frith to other heathen and pagan groups. Whether it involves creating a new relationship, or rebuilding one, I'll do what's necessary to create positive working relationships with all who are willing to take a seat next to me by the fire.
I look forward to the opportunity to serve our community as the President of TAC, and I don't take that responsibility lightly, I have an open-door policy, so if you need to speak to me about anything TAC-related or other, please feel free to reach out. Together we'll make the Asatru Community the largest and best heathen community in the world!
Our gods are bigger than our differences!
Topher W. Henry
President of The Asatru Community
Hello my name is Dennis “Jorvik” Oglesby. I'm a husband, father, and grandfather.
I'm a Veteran of the US Army Special Forces, serving my regiment in a variety of specialties before finally retiring in 2012 as Special Forces Warrant (CW4). During my career starting in 1984, I had combat tours in Somalia and Iraq twice. Additionally, I served multiple tours in Europe (Yugoslavia), Africa, and the Middle East. My military time also led me to Scandinavian countries such as Norway, Finland, Denmark, and Iceland several times. I always enjoyed the culture and felt a special kinship to the people there. Later, I'd find out through DNA testing that this was where my ancestors came from and led to my deeper exploration of the Norse Gods and religion in school, eventually leading me to Asatru.
My goal is to help grow our community into a close-knit family. I want to help provide a safe and friendly community in which this is possible. Additionally, to help each of you find your potential within Asatru and the calling we all hear; regardless if it's personal or giving back to the community. I'm here to help. I'm always searching for better ways to reach just a portion of TAC here in the SSE, and sometimes I reach out to Ambassadors in other states I visit and grow my network. As heathens, we have to make efforts to come out of our shells and meet others. Our community will only be as strong as we make it, and together we can make it succeed.
I'm deeply honored to have this opportunity to serve all of you in TAC.
Hail and greetings, brothers, sisters, and friends! I am Patrick Golden, commonly known by the pseudonym of Jeddar Felix online. I am currently in Carrollton/Dallas Texas. Being a Navy brat, I have grown and spent time most everywhere on Midgard. I am quite happy to have passed the Clergy Training program to be ordained as one of TAC’s esteemed Gothi. To summarize, I come from a mixed heathen and mostly Christian background, having found my way to Odin’s call in mid-2018, quickly found myself volunteered into the Ambassador’s program, and from there into the CTP! I look forward to helping anyone I can and will soon be looking into forming a new Kindre
