Trinity welcomes Timothy Rutherford as our new Youth
Timothy Rutherford is the newest member of the Trinity ministry team, having joined as Youth Pastor starting early in August.
Trinity's teens plan concert trip to Universal.
Our new Youth Pastor Timothy Rutherford is already ramping
up activities for our youth!
He is organizing a trip to Universal Studios for the teens on Saturday,
September 6th for Florida's biggest Christian music festival — the Rock
the Universe Concert Event.
The group will enjoy concerts from Toby Mac, Lecrae and
Family Force 5, ride some rides and eat some good food. The group will
leave Trinity at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday the 6th and will return very late
that evening. The tickets are $75 per person and they include the
admissions ticket, travel to and from Universal Studios, and dinner. If
you and/or your teens are interested in going to Universal, please contact
Timothy Rutherford in the Church office at 772-567-1146 or
by email before Sunday, August 31.
With an engaging smile an easy willingness to strike up a conversation, Timothy is an avid reader, and informed Biblical scholar, and a devoted husband and father of two young sons.
Earlier in his life, he explored a career with U.S. Marines, but ultimately decided that his true calling was the ministry — the same career path as his father (currently an Episcopal priest in Winter Garden, Florida).
Timothy’s wife, Amie, is a professional development specialist for the Indian River School District where she coaches teachers on becoming more effective. “Our jobs so much alike,” observes
Timothy, “only mine involves coaching young people on becoming more effective Christians.”
Timothy and Amie met at Saint Augustine’s Flagler College as undergraduates. While in college, he apprenticed as a youth minister at the local church there. However, he established his ministerial credentials during a nine-year tenure as youth minister for the Church of the Holy Comforter in Sumter, South Carolina.
“After a period of time, I came to realize that my work would be God’s work,” states Rutherford, “and I set out to serve.” He cites as his favorite scripture verse Philippines 1:21. It reads: “For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.” “The way I see it,” he explains, “while I am alive, I will live for Christ knowing that when I die I will receive my ultimate reward.
“The call to serve Trinity’s youth excites me,” he adds. “In Christ’s name, we are poised to accomplish great things. Now is a good time to be at Trinity.”
To expand the opportunity for parishioners and our neighbors to
participate in Holy Eucharist, Trinity's ministry team is adding two
additional mid-week worship services in our Chapel, as well as
rescheduling another one.
Each week on
Tuesdays, Trinity will observe Eucharist at 4:00 PM. The following day, on
Wednesdays, Eucharist will be celebrated at 9:00 AM.
Then, on Thursday mornings, Trinity's
traditional Holy Eucharist and Healing Service will begin at a new time.
Instead of 9:30 AM, the worship service will begin a half-hour later, at
We cordially invite everyone to include a mid-week worship
service on their schedules.
