Meet The

Staff

Trevor Hughes

Lead Pastor

Pastor Trevor has been married to his “Sweet Stephanie” since May 2nd, 2015. They have been blessed to raise two young and vivacious boys: Levi, 3.5 years old and Ruach 1.5 years old. Together they joined the Good Shepherd family on December 15th, 2019. Pastor Trevor comes from a civil engineering background where he did water and sanitation work globally. He began his “church” ministries in 2013 as a Youth Pastor at Redeemer Lutheran Church in Maryland. Over the years he grew into many different areas and responsibilities including an international, national and local Mission’s Director, Young Adult Director, Missional Discipleship Pastor, an Associate Pastor with special focus on young families and Interim Lead Pastor. He is looking forward to what God has for us in the next 2 years of this intentional Interim Lead Pastor call. May God’s kingdom advance! One of his favorite scripture passages is, “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of God.”  (Matthew 5:3) and “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” (Matthew 25:40)
