May Fellowship Member of the Month Trenton Teegarden serves as Minister of Contemporary Music and Worship Arts at Pulaski Heights United Methodist Church in Little Rock, AR, where he plans and leads two modern-style services on Sunday mornings followed by Sunday evening youth worship.
He joined The Fellowship because he wanted to collaborate with other people who share his call and cites relationships facilitating shared joys and challenges of worship arts ministry as the greatest benefit of membership. Trenton credits the collegiality and encouragement of The Fellowship's diverse and creative membership for inspiring his growth as a worship leader. As an emerging worship professional, he values mentorship opportunities with "more seasoned" members.
A man of diverse interests, Trenton's hobbies include golf, European football (soccer), and cooking.
Since his arrival at Pulaski Heights UMC in January 2016, Trenton has introduced the congregation to sung communion responses, a new monthly practice for them.
Trenton's favorite worship resources include:
- SongSelect by CCLI
- United Methodist Hymnal / Book of Worship and supplements
We celebrate Trenton as a Member of the Month who embodies the essence of the Fellowship spirit: diversity, creativity, relationship, mutual support, and collaboration.
