The Reverend
Dr. Philip A. Bouknight

Welcome to Trinity Ecumenical Parish! I am Philip and I serve as the Senior Pastor.

I have experienced life in many churches but never have I found a community so engaging, compassionate, and authentic. I came to Trinity because of their commitment to community and service in God’s name. After many years of watching them grow and transform, I am convinced that the Holy Spirit is continuously doing amazing things through God’s people here. At Trinity, relationships take precedence over opinion and unity is cherished over division. Never have I been more fulfilled in my calling as a minister as I have been serving in this place. In my “free time” I can be found in my woodshop which is a form of meditation for me!


Please join us as we love, serve, learn and grow together in Christ and please give me a call and introduce yourself if you are new!
