Quotes

"Because the priority of the church community at Trinity is to maintain the big, large beautiful - what we consider the real heritage building on the property - there just has not been the resources given our aging and declining membership."
...The participants in the program work in an academic and mentoring relationship with Dr. Leonard Sweet and Bishop Donald Hilliard to "review, reform, and revision a personal style and approach to ministry through preaching."
"I would just like to highlight the extraordinary faith and commitment of the people here," notes Rev. Elsdon.  "It's not from a lack of faith, or lack of love or enthusiasm for the gospel.  [What's happening to] this church is a reflection of wider trends happening across the country."
