Meet our Interim Pastor: The Rev. Garrett M. Mettler
Trinity Church is currently in the search process for a new Rector, following the retirement of The Rev. Jean Campbell in July 2015. On September 1, 2015, the Vestry hired The Rev. Garrett M. Mettler to serve as our Interim Pastor during this time of transition and preparation for the calling of a new Rector.
In his initial correspondence with our church Wardens, Father Garrett wrote that he was seeking a faithful, motivated and optimistic congregation to serve as its priest: "I bring strengths of inspirational preaching, lay ministry development, enthusiastic teaching with both children and adults, and a love for God's people in the ordinary and extraordinary times of their lives. My motivation in ministry is to create space for people to have genuine encounters with God through worship, prayer, scripture, fellowship and service."
Father Garrett was previously Interim Rector at St. John's Episcopal Church in Pleasantville, NY and served most recently as the chaplain at Wooster School in Danbury, CT. Originally from California, Fr. Garrett now lives in Danbury with his two daughters, Morgan and Natalie.
