Rev. Shannon V. Trenton, Senior Pastor
In 2020, Church Hill welcomed Rev. Shannon V. Trenton as our new pastor. Pastor Shannon brings with her a passion for community ministry, creation care, and discipleship/spiritual formation, as well as a deep love and curiosity for Scripture. She is currently a Provisional Elder in the East Ohio Conference of the United Methodist Church, and most recently served at Church of the Redeemer UMC in the North Coast District.
Pastor Shannon is a 2019 graduate of the Methodist Theological School in Ohio, where she earned her Master of Divinity with a specialization in Biblical Greek and successfully defended an interdisciplinary thesis project centered on Scripture and Christian ethics. She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in 2008 from Ohio Wesleyan University, where she majored in politics and government.
When she is not serving the church, Pastor Shannon enjoys being outdoors, including a developing interest in gardening; learning new things, especially languages; and most of all, spending time with her two fiercely amazing children.
Effective January 1, 2014, our administrative committees (Nominations, Staff Parish, Finance, and Trustees) were consolidated into a single Church Leadership Council of about a dozen people. We no longer have formal worship or education committees. Instead, we have moved to a structure built on action-oriented ministry teams.
