→Jurisdictional Change: status update/OMHKSEA
Although ordained in the [[Church of Constantinople|Ecumenical Patriarchate]], serious conflict arose among the ecclesiastical leadership in Indonesia in 2001, and Fr. Daniel returned to America for several years. In 2004 he began a dialogue with Archbishop (now Metropolitan) [[Hilarion (Kapral) of New York|Hilarion]] of Australia, and in 2005 the Synod of [[ROCOR]] (the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia) accepted him as a Priest, as well as the [[clergy]] and parishioners of the [[Orthodoxy in Indonesia|Indonesian Orthodox Church]] that were formerly under the [[jurisdiction]] of the [[Orthodox Metropolitanate of Hong Kong and Southeast Asia]] ([[Church of Constantinople|Ecumenical Patriarchate]]).
Under Metropolitan Hilarion’s oversight, Fr. Daniel has been appointed Dean of the Mission for the Indonesian Orthodox Church under ROCOR, and continues to split his time between Indonesia, supervising the work of church planting, and evangelism, and raising up additional clergy for ordination, and the US, where he raises support for the Indonesian Orthodox Church.<ref>[http://www.orthodoxspeakers.com/fr-daniel-byantoro/ Fr.
