PASTOR - Reverend Monica J. Hall
Reverend Hall is a native Texan who landed in Utah and fell hopelessly in love with the Wasatch Mountains. She received her Bachelors of Art in Vocal Performance from Wayland Baptist University in Plainview, Texas and finished her Masters of Divinity in 2008 from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary. Monica was ordained in 2009 and continued her pastoral education pursuing a Board Certification in Chaplaincy while working as a Hospice Chaplain in Ogden, Utah before taking a full-time call to Trinity Presbyterian Church in March of 2013. In January 2019, Monica will receive her Peer Preaching Coach Certification from the David E. Buttrick Peer Preaching Program at Vanderbilt Divinity School.
Monica is active in the Ogden community serving through many local organizations that work to empower the poor and homeless in Utah as well as working to champion LGBTQI rights and equality.
She is currently serving on the Council and the Committee on Ministry for the Utah Presbytery, and was elected as a Teaching Elder Commissioner to the 221st General Assembly in Detroit where she served as a Vice-Moderator for the Board of Pensions, PILP, Presbyterian Foundation, and Presbyterian Publishing Company.
In addition to serving Trinity, Monica enjoys getting out into the mountains of the Wasatch with her hiking buddies the Trinity Trailblazers. She also enjoys the daily outings of "park time aka PT" with her very scheduled and orderly Border Collie - Lebowski.
Monica is married to John Worthington, a native Californian, and they share a full life of church vocation, music endeavors, and are surrounded by a church family that is near and dear to them both. Monica is in her 8th year of serving Trinity and finds great hope in the church on the hill that is digging deep into Making God's Love Visible.
One responsibility of membership in the church is the election of officers who are ordained to fulfill particular functions. These officers include the Session and Deacons. The Session is the governing board of the local church consisting of ordained Ruling Elders elected by the congregation. Deacons are elected and ordained to minister to those who are in need, to the sick, to the friendless, and to any who may be in distress both within and beyond the community of faith.
