Marvin Smith, Sexton


Generally speaking my ministry is, “To seek and to serve the incarnate God.” I look for the presence of Christ in everyone and everywhere and then I serve Christ by serving others.  Serving The Christ is my form of saying thank you to God who created us all and the world we are blessed to live in.  I see my ministry at Trinity as enabling lay ministry in multiple ways.

 I am so happy to be serving with you here at Trinity.  I have been ordained a Deacon since 2001.  I was called from Trinity Troy (my home church) and when I finished Deacon School the Bishop assigned me here for five years.  Then, I spent next the six years serving as Deacon at St. James Piqua.  Following a break from ministry, I was called to serve The I-75 Corridor.  The Corridor consisted of St. Mark’s in Sidney, St. James in Piqua and Trinity in Troy.   Then, for about the last year and a half I just served at St. James.  My recent call to Trinity came as a result of a mutual desire on the part of Rev. Nancy, the Vestry, Jason Leo, The Bishop, and me.  I am attracted to Trinity because I see so much life and growth here.  I see the Holy Spirit at work here and I want to be part of it.  I am here on a part time basis.
