Our Rector

The Reverend Ifeoluwa (Ife) Ojetayo has been the rector at Church of the Holy Trinity since July 2021. Ife is passionate about the word of God as the means by which God transforms people's lives. It has the power to bring the dead to life, for we “have been born again, not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the living and abiding word of God” (1 Peter 1:23). He believes that the Word and the Sacraments, with prayer, are the means of grace by which God grows his church.

Ife is married to Lisa and they are the proud parents of four boys. They love the opportunity to minister to the members of the Church of the Holy Trinity and to share the Gospel of our Lord to the greater Syracuse region.

Bishop David Bena

Bishop David Bena

Holy Trinity Church has the honor of having Bishop David Bena as a member of our congregation!

Bishop Dave Bena lives in Syracuse so he and his wife Mary Ellen can be close to family. Although he is retired, he can still be seen behind the altar at various times throughout the year, singing with the worship team, and out visiting parishioners in their homes. 

We are truly blessed and thankful for both his wisdom and ministry in our church, including several times as interim rector.
