Trinity Announces Changes to Development Staff
Trinity School for Ministry is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Gerald E. Mote as Director of Development. “Jerry” is a Certified Fund Raising Executive with more than 25 years of development experience. He has worked for Allegheny General Hospital, the Western Pennsylvania Hospital Foundation, and most recently the Bradley Center for abused children. In his career Jerry has overseen all aspects of the development process including annual campaigns, grant writing, major gift efforts, and comprehensive capital campaigns.
In a recent interview, Mr Mote said, “I think the opportunity to use my talents to support the spreading of God’s word and to see that grow through the nations is why I’m here. The way I see it, for every student that comes out of this seminary, you can expand God’s kingdom a million fold!”
Jerry has been aware of Trinity for years because of his association with the ministry of The Rev. John Guest, one of the founders of the school. Jerry applied for the position at Trinity because it promised him the opportunity to exercise his profession in an explicitly Christian setting. Trinity is pleased to welcome this accomplished development professional to its staff. Mr Mote will begin work on January 2, 2012.
Trinity School for Ministry is also pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. John K. (Jack) Walsh as Director of Planned Giving at Trinity School for Ministry. Jack is an experienced financial services professional with an M.S. in management from Purdue University and more than thirty years of banking experience. He has worked for both Mellon Bank and Edward Jones Financial Services. In 2008 Jack retired from financial services in order to devote his energies to full time Christian service and advancing the mission of Trinity School for Ministry. He first worked in support of the Extension Ministries Department, and most recently served as the Interim Director of Development. Jack is looking forward to the opportunity to work more directly with Trinity’s donors, helping them to achieve their philanthropy goals.
