Meet Our Parish Staff

Charles on the Crane

The Rev. Charles J. Smith was born and raised in Farmvillle, Virginia. He graduated from Hampden-Sydney College in 2005 with a degree in Philosophy. He began his seminary training at Virginia Theological Seminary and completed the last semester of training at Ripon College Cuddesdon, a private hall of Oxford University. In 2011 he accepted a call to serve as Assistant Rector at St. Matthew's Episcopal Church in Spartanburg, South Carolina. He became Rector for Trinity July 1, 2014 and is excited about the opportunities we will have to share the Good News of God in Jesus Christ within the wider city and to become more involved in dicoesan activities. Charles married his Longwood College sweetheart, Chrissy in 2006. Chrissy is a special education educator in Suffolk and is a native of Virginia Beach. Duke is the family dog.

Did you know Charles likes to paint?  Yep, the budding artist joined Leslie Parker's group at Studio One at Trinity recently and has really taken off.  I'm sure it won't be long before you will see his work popping up all over Portsmouth!




Linda painting

Meet Linda Torres, our parish admnistrator.  Linda made Hampton Roads her home back in 1976 when she moved from a small town in Michigan. She raised her family in Newport News and moved to Portsmouth in

2005.  When she is not busy administering to the parish, you will probably find her painting, in either acrylics or on porcelain.  Linda is also the show director for the annual Seawall Art Show held in August.



 Ryan Michael Blake, a native of Wilmington, North Carolina, began as Director of  Music in November 2011.  In addition to his musical prowess, he is a consultant on  liturgy and congregational development.  His course, Exploring the Foundations of  Worship, has met great success in congregations throughout the Southeast.  "His  abilities and expertise span the wide spectrum of the Anglican Tradition and his  knowledge of its customs is well respected."  (The Rev. Thomas C. Barnett, DMin, PhD)

 In his spare time, Ryan Michael enjoys studying pre-Civil War religious history and  architecture in the South.  Outside of the Church, he has a distinguished career as a conductor of professional and amateur musical theatre.  

Tony on his birthday croppedTony Macklin has been the sexton at Trinity for more than 28 years. Loved by all, he is the man you go to if you have question about Trinity or need anything done.  

Born and raised in Portsmouth, he loves his North Carolina Tarheels and his shoes.  This man has a shoe for every outfit. . . and do not get caught getting his tennis shoes dirty!
