Our staff works to oversee and implement the day-to-day, week-to-week ministry of the church. They would be glad to hear from you and answer any questions you may have!
David Sherwood, Senior Pastor
David grew up in New Jersey. He received his B.A. from Duke University and his M.Div. and D.Min. from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. Ordained to the gospel ministry in 1988, he has served as Trinity’s senior pastor since 2005. David and his wife, Kim, live in Barrington and have four adult children and seven grandchildren. In his spare time David likes to watch documentaries and old sitcoms, listen to Bruce Cockburn and The Derek Trucks Band, and fuss over his old Mercedes diesels…unpersuasively trying to convince Kim that they were wise purchases.
