Rev. Jim Folk

Senior Pastor

Pastor Jim Folk & Family

I grew up in Media, PA (the home of Wawa!) and was raised in the United Methodist Church. After attending Penncrest High School, I went to The College of Wooster where I majored in Mathematics and was active in the Fighting Scot Marching Band, as well as InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. I taught High School math in Copley Ohio (just outside Akron) from 1995-1998 and was involved in Valleyview Chapel, a local church plant.  I was called by God into ministry in the spring of 1998 and attended Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, IL.  I initially served in Big Rapids, Michigan for four years, at Trinity Fellowship EFC, and the last ten years at Christ Community Church in Ocala, FL.  I am ordained with the Evangelical Free Church of America. We are excited to start this new season in Cary with Trinity Community Church.  (Emily, Corinne, Muriel, Jim)

Emily is from the Dayton OH area, and we were married in 1998.  Our two daughters are Muriel, and Corinne.  We also have two relatively well-behaved dogs named Russell & Ginger.  I enjoy swimming, golf, guitar, hiking & kayaking, and watching sports of almost any kind.
