Pastoral Transition

Trinity Presbyterian Church is seeking a new senior pastor -- our fifth in the church's 70-year history. We are excited and hopeful about where God will lead us as we embark on this important step for our congregation.

Our Interim Pastor Hiring Committee (IHPC) began its work the end of July 2019. It will likely take three to six months to hire an interim pastor. After the interim pastor is hired, the typical timeline for calling a new senior pastor is 12 to 30 months.

This site will keep you up to date on the search process and provide access to documents and background materials relevant to the pastoral transition. We will update this information regularly, so please visit often.

This committee began its work in August 2019. 

An interim pastor is responsible for:
