Trendell Clark goes by TC. He was born in Virginia and has lived here most of his life, except for earning his Master’s in Sport Psychology at West Virginia University. He met his wonderful wife, Laurie, in West Virginia, although she is quick to point out that she is a native of New York. They have been married for almost 18 years and are foster parents seeking to adopt from the foster care system.

TC has been a counselor and social worker for over 17 years and has served kids from hard places in several different capacities during that time. He is looking forward to returning to school next year to pursue a degree in counseling that focuses on helping children and youth that are victims of trauma.

TC and his wife have been coming to Hope Church for 10 years. He is grateful for how God has worked to carry them through some difficult times, with love and support from the small groups they have joined. TC has been a Christian for over 30 years and still recognizes that, although God has brought him a long way, God’s not finished with him yet. He is glad to get the privilege of walking with Jesus on this journey.
