We welcomed Trish to the SFUMC staff just prior to April 2020 amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. The timing for introductions to our active youth group - not to mention parents and the congregation - could not have been worse. Not to be deterred, though, Trish jumped right into the social media world with both feet! She quickly made virtual connections via The Underground facebook page and regular Sunday evening Zoom youth meetings. Her passion for building relationships was evident immediately.
Trish has been active in youth or camping ministry her whole career, most recently at the Judson Collins Center, a United Methodist camp in Onsted, Michigan. Trish felt God’s call to ministry when she was only 16! She cherishes personal relationships, of course, but also loves mission projects and contemporary worship. Trish cautions, however, that “you do not want to hear her sing!”.
Trish is married with three children of elementary and middle school ages – Ryan, Alanna and Leighann. Trish and Greg were married in 2003. Not surprisingly, Greg proposed to Trish in front of 500 teens at a conference! As a family, the Farrells like to travel, play sports, play board games and go boating. The whole family is excited to get involved at SFUMC.
