Jeremy Jackson

Born and educated in England, Jeremy Jackson has co-pastored Trinity Fellowship since its foundation in 1978. He is ordained in the Conservative Congregational Christian Conference. His most formal training was at L’Abri, Switzerland, as an assistant to the late Francis Schaeffer for whom he later acted as an editor and historical advisor. Before entering upon pastoral ministry, he taught European history at the College of William and Mary and at Syracuse University, having completed his Ph.D. at the University of Pennsylvania. He is the author of No Other Foundation: The Church across Twenty Centuries (1980). He and his wife Lucinda are the parents of twelve children.

Nathaniel Jackson

Nathaniel is a native of Syracuse and grew up attending Trinity Fellowship. He obtained a degree in history from Colgate University, where he captained the soccer team. He spent a year working at His Mansion Ministries before pursuing teaching. He has an M.A. in History and NYS Certification in High School Social Studies. In 2008, he traveled to England to study at Cornhill Training Course in London. Completing the course in one year, Nathaniel spent a second year working at a London-area church, Christ Church Bromley, before returning to the US. Nathaniel was ordained an elder in Trinity Fellowship in 2011. He is married to Abigail and they have a daughter Florence. Abi served as the church administrator at Christ Church Bromley, in England, and is now full-time homemaker.

Stefan Matzal

Stefan has been blessed to be the husband of Sarah for more than twenty years. The Lord has entrusted them with four children: Lydia, Charlotte, Hans, and Susannah. Stefan was raised in New Jersey and moved to Syracuse to take a position as high school Bible teacher and chaplain at a Christian school where he served for eight years. He has been one of the pastors in Trinity Fellowship since 2001. His philosophy of pastoral ministry emphasizes, among other things, the authority and relevance of Scripture, and the importance of love and prayer for the congregation. Stefan is a graduate of Bucknell University and Baptist Bible Seminary, Clarks Summit, PA. In addition to his normal pastoral responsibilities, he has a particular interest in Hebrew language and in the literary features of Old Testament narrative. He has published two brief articles, one on 2 Samuel 4 and another on Ezra 4-6, in the academic journal Vetus Testamentum.
