We welcome Gizelle Moran as Director of Children & Family Ministries!

Hello, Trinity. I am Gizelle Moran, the new Director of Family & Children’s Ministry. I have over 10 years of volunteer experience in children’s and youth ministries, and worked at Christ & St. Luke’s for two years as the Director of Family Ministries. I am a Godly Play enthusiast, passionate about family formation, and an evangelical at heart. Welcoming families into the life of the church brings me great joy and I can’t wait to get to work at Trinity! In the upcoming year, my goal is to create intergenerational events, reestablish an interactive Vacation Bible School, and further develop a warm and inviting space for young families. 

My husband, Chris, and my two daughters, Amelia and Vivian, are also excited to join me at Trinity. Chris and I met at church 15 years ago, and discovered the Episcopal Church while we were engaged. We found a safe and welcoming home in the Episcopal Church that resulted in worship becoming an important part of our family life. With one Sunday at Trinity, Amelia and Vivian bragged that they loved their new church thanks to the wonderful Godly Play curriculum and inviting environment. We all look forward to becoming a part of the Trinity Family.
