Shawn lives on Thorndike Street in East Cambridge with his wife, Hanna, and his three daughters, Inae, Inji, and Ina. Shawn earned his B.A. in Classics and History from Williams College in Williamstown, MA, and his Master of Divinity from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in South Hamilton, MA. He has served in various ministries over the last 10 years, including as the Regional Liaison for North America for the Lausanne Movement, Research Intern for the Center for the Study of Global Christianity, and Volunteer Staff Worker for InterVarsity. However, his primary passion has always been the local church. Shawn served on the Pastoral Staff of King of Grace Church in Haverhill, MA from 2011-2015, and was sent out to start Trinity Cambridge Church. He is a board game enthusiast and an ardent Patriots fan.
Paul lives in Haverhill, MA, and serves as the Lead Pastor of King of Grace Church, the church that sent Shawn out with a team to plant Trinity Cambridge Church. He has been happily married to Peggy for 33 years. They have four adult children, Daniel, Caleb (married to Hannah), John, and Mary, and two granddaughters, Elizabeth (Ellie) and Suzannah (Suzie). Paul and Peggy grew up in the Boston area, and, after living out of state for 8 years, returned to New England to plant King of Grace Church in 2002. Paul obtained his Doctorate in Materials Science from Johns Hopkins University and is a graduate of the Sovereign Grace Pastors College. He is one of the “borrowed” elders of Trinity until we have our own plurality of local elders, and he also serves as the Director of The Gospel Coalition’s New England Chapter. Years ago, he worked at Oxford Pickle Company in S. Deerfield, Ma where he was the fastest pickle packer on the fastest pickle production line in the country. There’s a tongue twister in there somewhere.
