Connecting, Supporting, Exploring Faith Together


Elder Richard Clark, Pastor
“Someday, after we have mastered the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love.  For the second time in the history of the world, we have discovered fire.”  So wrote one of Richard's favorite Christian theologians, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin.  Reading the gospels and other sources convinced Richard that we worship a God of love instead of wrath, and all we have to do is to embrace that love.

As pastor of the SPC Richard's vision is openness, new ideas, social justice and getting back to the real message of Jesus instead of doctrines about him.  To follow Jesus means more than worshiping him; it means following what he taught. That is being a true disciple (Matthew 28:19).

Trina Brown, Choir Director and Congregational Music Leader
Trina and her husband Wendell began attending Salem Presbyterian in November 2007. They immediately felt at home upon their first visit, and directly after the worship service Trina was recruited to sing in the choir.
Following the departure of long-time Choir Director Doug McKinley, Trina was found to be an excellent match for the church's needs. She was offered the position and started her service in that role in September 2013. Trina is overjoyed to be a part of Salem Presbyterian and even more so to be a part of the choir. Trina feels that music is a critical part of worship, that it should inspire and engage, and she is honored to lead the congregation in song.
Please see our Music Ministry page for more about our music program at Salem Presbyterian Church, and our Choir page for more about our choir.
