Our Eldership

At Trinity Church, we believe in servant leadership. We have a team of Elders who, with help from other members, lead the church.

Pastor Jim Nolson

Jim and Sharon Nolson have been attending and serving at Trinity Church since 2017.


After years of pastoral ministry in the Newmarket area, they founded Water's Edge Ministries here in Owen Sound where they offer pastoral care and biblical counselling. 

Jim is an avid golfer as well as teaches pro, and Sharon works part-time as a  Massage Therapist. Together, they enjoy hosting and meeting people from around the world in their B&B, The Doctors Inn.

Jim and Sharon love spending time with their growing family; Holly (Scott), Jenna (Jesse), and Gracie (Luke). Of course, being Nana and Papa to 3yr old, Macy, and their new granddaughter coming in May 2021 is their favourite role ever!

Richard Petan

Richard and Carolyn Petan have been part of Trinity Church for many years with Richard serving as an Elder for several years.

Richard works full-time and Carolyn is a full-time mom to their four boys.
