Rev. Dr. Ted Harrison

Ted Harrison,  Minister of Word, Sacrament, and Pastoral Care

 

Who is Ted?

Ted was ordained in the year 2000, when he began serving churches in northern Ontario. He’s since earned his Doctor of Ministry degree. He’s deeply involved with Manitou Conference (the wider court of the United Church in north-eastern Ontario) serving as its President from 2011 through 2013. Ted has real passion for Christian worship, with a focus on relevant and dynamic preaching that draws on scripture, humour, and music. Ted is also a trained spiritual director.

Ted reads a lot. He loves canoeing, cross-country skiing, and he plays cowbell in a rock band.( No, really!)

Ted has two daughters, Eve and Erin, who he thinks are exceptionally brilliant children! Ted is married to Caroline, a hospital physiotherapist and part-time sermon critic.

 About Ted’s Work:

Ted’s ministry focuses on worship leadership (including weddings and funerals), pastoral care (visiting and counselling), and the typical day-to-day operations of our big and busy church. Ted keeps Trinity focussed on who we are and why we’re here. He makes sure we keep a sense of humour while staying faithful to our mission!

A Word From Ted:

“The Bible makes some really exclusive statements about Jesus—like nobody gets to God except through Jesus. And I believe that’s true—true, that is, for me. The story of Jesus is for me the most profound revelation of the love of God. At the same time, I have learned tremendously from people and  insights of other faiths and traditions– they help make me a better Christian!

At Trinity, you will find people with an open-minded faith. Faith that’s marked by humility and sincere questions, rather than by harsh judgements or close-mindedness.”
