Meet Our Pastor
Pastor Lynn Wilson “my goal is to serve God in the way and where God leads“
In September of 2005, Lynn was appointed to serve Trinity in Frederick, MD, as a half-time Associate Pastor. She grew up in a small mountain community called Chestnut Hill which is located across the river and up the mountain from Harpers Ferry, WV. She was born into the Chestnut Hill United Methodist church where she was an active member of the Sunday school and youth group. At the age of 15 she was asked to be the youth representative to the Administrative Council and this is where she started her life’s journey of working in the church. As an adult she held the positions of Youth Group Leader, Coordinator of Youth, Senior High Sunday School teacher, Director of Christmas Programs, Lay Leader and Lay Member to the Annual Conference.
Lynn has been married to her husband Bill for 41 years. They are both lifelong residents of Jefferson County, WV. Bill is retired and works as a volunteer part-time pastor for a small independent Baptist church. They are the proud parents of 3 children, Tai, Lea and Matthew, and equally proud grandparents of eight wonderful grandchildren ranging in age from 5-24 years of age.
Before answering God’s call to serve in ministry, Lynn’s life experience taught her much about loving and caring for others. Various employments range from nursing assistant in an elder care facility to an administrative assistant in Loudoun Hospital Center.
Lynn is a licensed local pastor in the Baltimore Washington Conference and completed her Course of Study requirements at Wesley Seminary. Lynn has been an active member of the Frederick District Lay Servant Committee for almost 20 years, and has served as the Baltimore Washington Conference local pastor representative to the National Fellowship of Associate Members and Local Pastors Association. She is also continuing to work on an Associate Degree with the emphasis of her study being done in the areas of psychology, sociology and social work. Prior to serving at Trinity, Lynn was the pastor at Flint Hill United Methodist Church for just over a year.
Lynn says that her goal is to serve God in the way and where God leads her. One of her favorite Bible verses is from 1 Timothy 6:6, “There is great gain in godliness combined with contentment.” Being content in the Lord is what makes her smile.
