Our Story

Our Pastor

Ben and Cynthia are thrilled to be in Lake Nona. Cynthia is a Florida girl who grew up in Winter Park and graduated from UCF with a degree in elementary education who loves all things teaching, singing, and running. Ben is a Southern boy from Atlanta who loves all things teaching, reading, and golfing, who swept Cynthia off her feet—as he tells the story—when he came down to attend seminary at RTS Orlando in 2004, and they were married in February 2007. After nine years away, pursuing Ben’s PhD at Southern Seminary and pastoring churches in Kentucky and Alabama, they came back to sunny Central Florida to plant their lives and Trinity Church here in Lake Nona. 

Our City: Lake Nona

Lake Nona is a unique place. It is an ambitious, master-planned community that seeks to be the home of world-class medical education, state-of-the-art biotech research, and professional athletic training centers. It is a community dedicated to sustainable design and healthy living, with ambitious aspirations and an exciting future. Trinity Church of Lake Nona exists to help turn those horizontal aspirations vertical.


Our Logo

Looking at the Lake Nona logo you will notice that the waves are all horizontal. Trinity’s logo takes those waves and turns them vertical because, as Saint Augustine prayed 1,600 hundred years ago, “Our hearts are restless until they rest in God.” We also believe our affections and aspirations are misdirected until they point to Him.
