Brad Banks, Pastor
Brad is just beginning his ministry as pastor of Trinity Bible Church, officially starting in November, 2022.

He's a graduate of Miami University and Dallas Theological Seminary. Brad and his wife Bree have two teenage sons.
(We'll add more to this once Brad gets settled in.)
Tom Brown, Elder
Tom has been at Trinity since 1998, landing here upon “returning home” to his New Hampshire roots following a number of years in Virginia. After college and a short stint in the teaching field, he has spent the rest of his professional career in the world of computers, working currently as the IT manager of a locally based e-commerce firm. His primary ministry at Trinity beyond the leadership team has been in the area of music and worship.
Tom lives with his family in the community of Andover, where he and his wife enjoy the life of “small town America.” Tom enjoys bike riding, working in the yard and getting out with his family whenever possible.
Not many people know... Tom enjoys cooking, but only when there’s a grill involved.
Philip Sprunger, Elder
Phil came to Trinity in 2004, moving north from Charleston, South Carolina. He and his wife Sarah quickly became involved in leading the young adult ministry and helping with the nursery. Philip also joined in singing on the Praise & Worship team. In 2008, Philip had the opportunity to serve as one of three physicians on a short-term medical mission trip to Haiti.
Philip enjoys playing a mediocre game of basketball, working on home improvement projects, and spending time with his wife and three young children.
Not many people know... Philip grew up in Puerto Rico as a missionary kid before migrating north. This could help explain why he loves lobster, coconut flan, and barbecue.
Trinity's leadership also includes a team of deacons, who manage the church's facilities and oversee a number of our ministries of mercy.
