Protopresbyter John Artemas is a priest in the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, Metropolis of Chicago. In 2008 he was assigned to St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church in Oak Lawn, Illinois.

Artemas had a parishioner, Emmanuel Papadopoulos, arrested for trespassing at the church. Papadopoulos was banned from the property when he remained convinced that Artemas’ predecessor, Archimandrite Timothy Bakakos, had been involved in financial impopriety. Papadopoulos was convicted of criminal trespass.
