Adapted from an article by the Rev. H. “Laurie” Thompson on Trinity School for Ministry’s website:
Named after the Rev. Dr. Peter Moore, one of Trinity’s founders and the fourth dean/president, this new merit scholarship is awarded to outstanding pastoral leaders who exemplify the values of Trinity School for Ministry in their contexts of ministry: evangelical Anglican identity, three-stream graciousness, servant heartedness, excellence in scholarship, community concern, a passion for discipleship, dedication to lifelong learning, and faithfulness to the provision of God. Peter Moore Scholars are expected to have a Master of Divinity degree prior to appointment, and a track record for being a leader who plants, renews, and grows churches that make disciples of Jesus Christ.
The Rev. David Drake is the rector of the Church of the Resurrection in Lutherville, Maryland, one of the fastest-growing parishes in the Anglican Diocese of the Mid-Atlantic. The parish has a robust program of evangelism and discipleship, drawing in and touching the lives of a multigenerational group of families in the wider Baltimore area. The church began worship as a plant in the former home of General Douglas MacArthur, and has grown to a size where it is currently starting a capital campaign to build a new worship space and accompanying parish complex.
The Rev. Jeffrey Scott Miller is the rector of St. Helena’s parish church in Beaufort, South Carolina. St. Helena’s was established in 1712 as a colonial parish of the Church of England. The church was built in 1724 and is one of the oldest active churches in North America. The vision at St. Helena’s is to be like the Church at Antioch, where the disciples were first called Christians; Antioch was a culturally, ethnically, and socio-economically diverse church where all were welcome to seek the Lord. They encapsulate their vision in the words “Proclaim, Equip, Pray, Send & Go.”
