Rev. Marc Trimm, Moderator
Reverend Marc Trimm has had a desire from a very young age for people to learn of the love and goodness that God offers to all. Marc, after preaching his first sermon at the age of 10, realized the passion to touch hearts and transform lives burned inside of him and throughout his life has allowed it to drive him to serve as a media specialist for various ministries, traveling minister, pianist, worship pastor and senior pastor for the last 20 years. In 2003 Marc was licensed and ordained as a Minister of the Gospel and later that year became a senior pastor in which he served for 6 and a half years. Rev. Marc has a Bachelor’s Degree in Theology and various leadership certificates of training. Marc has served as Director of Music at MCCOR since 2013, Interim Pastor in 2017, appointed Associate Pastor in 2018 and currently serves as Senior Pastor.
