Prologue: A Portrait of Trinity Presbyterian Church

It is our privilege to work with Trinity in planting her next daughter church.  Through serving in a church planting fellowship with Trinity Jarrett is now being called as an assistant pastor for church planting.  Here’s a bit of Trinity’s story.  We will see what chapters the Lord continues to write.

In the late 90’s Trinity Presbyterian Church was established to serve Providence and its metro region with the good news of Jesus Christ.  Over the past fifteen years God has been faithful to build up Trinity and to use her in the lives of the people of Providence.  Here are some of the highlights of Trinity’s story.

From its inception God has drawn people from diverse backgrounds so that Trinity has grown into an established church equipped to serve metro-Providence

Trinity has a  special relationship with the large Liberian population in Providence, as it helped reunite families fleeing civil war and continues to serve this community.

In 2002 Trinity launched a campus ministry (Reformed University Fellowship) at Brown and The Rhode Island School of Design serving students and strengthening the church.

Two years later an Asian church meeting on Brown’s campus joined Trinity furthering the church’s diverse membership and bringing new opportunities to serve students.

Committed to advancing the gospel through starting new churches, Trinity sent members and resources to plant Christ Our Hope in Southern, RI in 2004.

In 2005 God provided a building downtown for Trinity to purchase further rooting the church in the city and strengthening her ministries.

Rev. David Sherwood, Senior Pastor of Trinity, was integral in starting the Southwest Church Planting Network and has faithfully led Trinity as a Christ-centered church reaching Providence since 2005.

“When compared with our nation’s metropolitan centers, Providence has the third lowest number of adults (per capita) who hold to the essential truths of historic Christianity.”
