Rev. Tex Sample, Ph.D., Interim Pastor
Tex Sample is the interim pastor at Trinity United Methodist Church while Patrick is away on a deployment to Djibouti, Africa. Here's a bit from Tex: I take this occasion to greet you and express my genuine delight in being appointed the interim pastor here at Trinity United Methodist Church. I have long admired this congregation, its commitments, and it’s important convictions at this time in the life of the wider church. It is my hope that we can continue the strong ministry that the Rev. Patrick Moore already has in place and that we can continue to strengthen that so that upon his return he can step right back into this congregation and its vital mission.
