I put my faith in Christ when I was four years old. My dad was driving us down the road and he asked me – he was a youth pastor and I had grown up all around the church – he asked me, “Trenton, if we were to go off the road right now and hit that light pole and both of us died, are you a hundred percent sure where you’d go after you died?” I said, “Uh, I’m pretty sure …” and he said “No, no, no, are you a hundred percent sure?” I was like, “Uh, I don’t know.” So for the rest of the day and that evening, he continued to talk to me, walking me through Bible verses that reaffirmed that I can have assurance in Christ. From that point on I knew that I was a believer and in God’s family.
My family used to live in Georgia and when we moved to Texas, my grandparents invited us to Christ Chapel. We decided to give it a try and quickly fell in love with Ted’s teaching and the church and how welcoming it was. We ended up moving out further towards Aledo and tried out the West Campus in the first couple months that it was started. Having been involved at the West Campus, I was approached a couple months ago with possibly becoming an intern by David Coutts. It was at a time when I was really confused with what in the world God was doing with my life. I’d feel like I had a major direction and then it would just disappear — so I had been praying a lot that God would open doors and close doors, and that it would be obvious to me. This was one of those doors that felt like it had been opened and important to not pass up.
I love doing pretty much anything outdoors. In fact, it’s probably my biggest passion – fishing, hunting, I’ll even combine the two with bow fishing. I love hanging out with people and I love being able to teach things to others. I feel completely approachable, in the sense of being an open book, so if anyone wants to talk to me – parents, students, etc. – I’m here.
