Rev. Randolf Richardson, Minister

After high school, I attended Potomac State College and WVU where I received an A.A. and B.A. in biology and a B.A. in psychology.  After several years working as a preschool teacher and an aftercare worker in a community mental health facility in Fairmont, WV, I returned to WVU and earned a J.D.  For the next 22 years I practiced law and we raised our family in Wheeling, WV.  In 2002, I entered Trinity Lutheran Seminary in Columbus, Ohio, and received my M.Div. in 2006.  I spent a brief time ministering at Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Farnham, NY, just south of Buffalo.  In October of 2006, I accepted a call to the Bittinger Lutheran Parish in Garrett County, MD, where I served for six years.  On December 1, 2012, I was installed as the pastor at Trinity.  Cindy and I have been married for more than forty years.  We have four children and four grandchildren.

Chuck Jones, Organist

Growing up in a small town in central North Carolina, Chuck had never even seen a Lutheran church until a school trip at the age of 9. "Lutherans keep silence in church," Chuck's third-grade teacher told the students she was taking to an organ concert at a Lutheran church in another town. It was true, he observed, and the time the Lutherans dedicated to silence for intimate communication with the Holy Spirit made a deep and lasting impression. The experience must have been powerful because, when he was later in graduate school, Chuck visited a Lutheran church again and took the adult catechetics class, soon being confirmed.
