Jeff Trotter has been a minister with us since the beginning of the congregation in 1996. He was the only minister until 2008 when Steve Miller came as the Associate. Steve has been a blessing and he and Jeff have formed a wonderful team.
Jeff grew up in Rock Hill and benefitted from the teaching and nurturing of the Charlotte Avenue congregation. His father, though aged, is still an active member there. During his undergraduate studies at Freed-Hardeman University, Jeff met and married his life partner, Mary Alice. She is a blessing of course to him, but as well to all those around her.
Jeff earned his Master’s in Religion degree from Lipscomb University in Nashville and then moved to Bristol, Virginia where he began his work as the minister for the East Bristol Church of Christ. After 11 years in Virginia, Jeff and Mary Alice came to his home area to support the fledgling congregation at Gold Hill Road.
Jeff believes that a minister should be doctrinally sound in the Word of God and a lover of people both within the church and in the community He should strive to relate to everyone in both teaching and preaching, and in day to day contact. Jeff appreciates your prayers as he continues to work on those attributes.
When he is not teaching, preaching, studying, or sharing time with others, you’ll find Jeff possibly enjoying a round of golf, catching up on the latest sports news, or traveling with Mary Alice.
