Rev. Sue Trigger
Rev. Sue Trigger is excited to serve as Mt. Tabor’s pastor as the congregation seeks God’s guidance in service and discipleship. Sue has served congregations in Iowa, Arkansas, Kentucky, Indiana, New York, New Jersey and Kansas as both a church educator and pastor. She is committed to blurring the lines between education, worship, and service so that faith formation happens whenever and wherever people gather. Her greatest joy in ministry comes when people, of all ages, encounter God and experience Christ’s life changing transformation. Her mission is to create space for those encounters.
Sue is dedicated to service in the Presbyterian Church (USA) and currently serves on the Advisory Committee on Social Witness Policy where she contributes to bringing scholarly information and policy recommendations to the General Assembly of the PC(USA). Sue has also served as an Evangelism coach for the PC(USA), on the board of the North East Association of Presbyterian Church Educators, moderated and served on Presbytery education and mission committees and Permanent Judicial Commissions.
Sue received her MDiv from Louisville Presbyterian Seminary. Her continued academic work includes Interim Ministry training, certification work at Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary, Union Theological Seminary and Dubuque Theological Seminary as well as educator certification courses through the PCUSA.
Sue’s husband, Mitch, is also an ordained pastor and their daughter, Kate Duffert, is the Director of General Assembly Planning in the Office of the General Assembly PC(USA). Their son, Charles, is working on his college degree and pursuing wood working, metal working, and historical acting.
Sue loves creating fabric art, knitting, crocheting and cross stitch and just about any craft project.
