Josh Hurst – Lead Pastor

I joined Trinity’s pastoral team in 2017 and live in Abington with my wife and best friend, Miriam and our four amazing kids-Eden, Eliana, Evaline, and Eleanor (yes, we got stuck on girls and stuck on E’s!). Along the way, I’ve picked up a couple of theological degrees-an M.A. from Reformed Theological Seminary and an M.Div. from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Prior to leading Trinity Church, I served for a number of years on staff at Grace Bible Church in Moore, SC. And, more recently as a bi-vocational elder at Grace City Church in Northeast Philly. I do most of the preaching and provide leadership and vision for Trinity alongside our other pastors. When I can grab some spare time, I love to exercise (sort of), eat good sushi, hang out with friends, read, play ball, and watch the Florida Gators and Philly sports squads.

Nathan Knisely – pastor

I was born and raised in Canton, Ohio. I was blessed to grow up in a family that was very involved in our local church where I was able to hear the good news of Jesus at a young age. It was during my years in our youth group that I began feeling a call to full time ministry. After high school I moved to Louisville, KY to pursue biblical and theological training at Boyce Bible College and Southern Seminary. Louisville was home for eight years. I married my wife, Laura, and we started our family there.

After completing a church planting residency at Sojourn Community Church in Louisville, Laura and I decided to join the Trinity core team and move to the Philly area in 2010. I’ve always had a love for music. Having served in worship ministries in different capacities over the years, I was thrilled to begin leading Trinity’s worship ministry. Laura and I live in Willow Grove with our three strapping young boys, Josiah, Caleb, and Levi.

Brandon Rogers – pastor

Originally from Texas, myself, my wife Bethan, and our daughter Jane were part of the team that moved to the northern suburbs of Philadelphia in 2010 to plant Trinity Church. We’ve since bought a house in Willow Grove, added two more kids to the mix (Owen and Emma), grown accustomed to calling the Philly area “home”, and built up our snow-shoveling muscles.

I have been a non-staff elder at Trinity since early 2015 and help lead our community groups. My absolute favorite thing to do is be present with my family, doing almost anything. They are, in a word, incredible. I also enjoy loading my barbecue pit with a lot of meat and having friends over to help us eat it.

what we believe

what we believe

Trinity Church’s statement of faith (based on the revised New Hampshire Confession of Faith from 1853) provides a clear, simple, and biblical foundation for all we do at Trinity. This confession summarizes biblical doctrine with Christ as center and the gospel as primary. Trinity is a church centered-on and continually shaped-by the gospel of Jesus Christ. Although we do not require our members to agree on every point, the confession below forms our theological DNA.
