Rev. Trimble, above all else, is a minister called by God to serve his people and bring his message of joy and salvation to those who believe. He recently retired after serving for 12 years as the Pastor of the Mount Hope Baptist Church, and he remains an active member of Yakima’s greater Faith Community. He is deeply involved and committed to his prison ministries.
Prior to his formal Ministry, Rev. Trimble enjoyed a career of service as a professional educator, teaching in the Yakima School District, and teaching and mentoring in the OIC of Washington alternative school system, where he enabled many high school students who thought they couldn’t, accomplish high school completion and acquire that valuable diploma or GED.
Community-wise, Rev. Trimble’s Civic and Community Service has been outstanding. He has been a strong “soldier” in the struggle for Peace, Justice and Equality for all citizens. For over ten years he worked with the late Rev. Joe T. Denman to get recognition for Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. that resulted in the re-naming of Yakima’s Washington Park to the Martin Luther King, Jr. Park; He later led the movement to name a street in Dr. King’s Honor that resulted in the Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard where the Annual MLK, JR. Peace and Justice March takes place during Dr. King’s Birthday Celebration. He continues to be active in his quest to ensure that all Americans enjoy the ability to achieve and reach their personal dreams and enjoy those inalienable rights guaranteed by the United States Constitution.
