Rev. Marc Trimm, Senior Pastor

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. It is his prayer that through music, the messages shared and the love from the family of MCC that all will grow in the knowledge of how much God loves and cares for our world and everyone who visits MCC of Our Redeemer!

James says, “My love for piano has always been strong since I was 17, when I first picked up music lessons at my Grandma’s piano in Tazwell, Virginia during the summers. I’m so thankful to be with MCC. It’s been a tremendously enriching experience, the people, the worship, and the wonderful music that comes from joining a great group of people.”

Scott Jones, Treasurer


I am an avid reader of Steven Kings many novels. I have not read all of his works but I continue to strive toward that end. 

Metropolitan Community Church is a very caring and affirming church for all individuals and a great place to worship. I hope to meet you there one day soon.
