The Reverend Timothy Weisman is a musician, teacher, community organizer, and a Lutheran pastor.
Pastor Weisman began a call serving as pastor of The Evangelical Lutheran Church of the Holy Trinity in March 2020, days before the city largely shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. His passions for ministry include preaching, music, caffeinated beverages, and helping congregations tell their stories and connect with their neighborhoods. His first year at Holy Trinity has been focused on helping the congregation share the Gospel digitally, especially during these days when the church isn't able to fully gather in its building.
Prior to coming Holy Trinity, Pastor Weisman served as pastor of Zion Lutheran Church in Pittsfield, Massachusetts; their work together included Jazz Vespers, which blends centuries-old evening prayer with jazz, blues, and Gospel; Laundry Love, which helps dozens of people wash and dry their laundry for free each month at a local laundromat; and Summer Eats at the Pittsfield Farmers Market, which is the only USDA Summer Eats meal site on Saturdays in Berkshire County. Common Room, which welcomes thousands of artists, musicians, farmers, and community members into the church each year, was the result of care-filled congregational visioning, fundraising, and implementation led by Pastor Weisman.
As a tried-and-true midwesterner, Pastor Weisman hails from Indiana corn and basketball country. He completed a Bachelor of Music degree at the University of Evansville with a major in organ and sacred music. He earned both the Master of Music (organ) and Master of Divinity degrees at Yale University, where he was awarded prizes in organ performance, organ accompanying, and church music.
