Pastor Trump came to us from “up north” 25 years ago after working for two years in the Hurricane Hugo recovery effort. He grew up in Lancaster, PA, and graduated from Muhlenberg College in Pennsylvania where he majored in English literature. He completed a Master of Fine Arts program in playwriting at Columbia University in New York City before going to Yale Divinity School for his Master of Divinity.
Before migrating south, John served parishes in New York City. Pastor Trump devotes his spare time to his family, although his twin sons, Noah and Samuel are now out of the house. Otherwise John fills his time with playwriting, reading, biking, and running with friends. He also prides himself on always being available as a pastor. Of course, he needs to know before he can care! Please feel free to contact him with any concern.
John’s favorite Bible verse? From Hebrews: “Run with perseverance the race that is set before you.”
