Longtime Holy Trinity member Robert Hill was elected by the new 2014 Council as Council President at the June Retreat. Rob previously served as Treasurer and has been involved in many aspects of the church including IT support, Children’s Ministry, and Council.
Let’s congratulate Rob and thank him in advance as he takes this important leadership role from former Council President Mary Anthony. Here are a few words from Rob:
I, along with my wife Colleen, have been members of Holy Trinity since we attended CLU (’87-’91). Colleen and I were married here in ’91 and our children, Christine and Joshua, were both baptized here. Over the past 3 years, I have had the privilege of serving our parish as a member of the church council, including one year as the council treasurer. Three years ago, when I first was elected to the congregation council, my goals were to be drawn closer to the church family as well as act as a catalyst for change and help contribute to a renewal of the spiritual growth of our congregation. I have been tremendously blessed these past three years as I have built new and closer relationships with other members of our church family and the congregation leadership.
And I have been further blessed with the opportunity to serve as a member of the call committee that is working to fill our pastoral vacancy. I ran for election to council hoping to be a catalyst for change and renew the spiritual growth of our congregation…and I learned over the past three years that while great things are happening in our congregation, we have so many more opportunities for growing in faith, love and obedience to the will of God. It is not an understatement to say that I want desperately our congregation, my family and myself to grow as God wants us to and to be drawn closer to the Gospel and to live it out more fully in our daily lives. This will require continued effort and continued change both individually and collectively as the Body of Christ.
