Meet Our Servants Team
Founder & CEO
Trent founded Servants in May of 2000. Trent had been working as a CPA in Baltimore, MD when he heard God’s call to start an organization that would help connect people in need with people that want to serve. Trent has led over 40 mission trips to Guatemala as well as teams to India, Haiti and in the Gulf Coast of the USA. Trent is passionate about seeing others serve and especially enjoys seeing people fall in love with missions for the first time.
Chief Program Officer
Lisa joined Servants in January of 2018 after experiencing her first mission trip to Guatemala in the summer of 2016. God has given her an intense passion for social justice and poverty alleviation. She relies on over twenty years of experience in non-profit leadership to help coordinate Servants’ ever-evolving ministries locally and around the world. Lisa has earned a PhD in Organizational Leadership and is a Training Facilitator for the Trauma Healing Institute of the American Bible Society.
Director of Outreach
Keith began working at Servants in September of 2017 after working as a full-time youth pastor in the York area for over 10 years. He had volunteered with Servants in the past, and when he saw the opportunity to serve full-time God said “Go.” Keith felt called to this work, but it is wholly the work of the Holy Spirit that has qualified him. Keith loves to see others experience moments where God equips them to do work that would not be possible without Him.
Director of Volunteer Engagement
John began working for Servants in February of 2019. Prior to joining Servants, he worked in the Mental Health field for 4.5 years. When God opened a door and provided an opportunity to join the Servants team, John graciously accepted. John is passionate about building relationships & connecting with others. In his role as the Director of Volunteer Engagement, he strives to make everyone feel welcome and safe as they serve with us.
Director of Operations
In the spring of 2018, Ron became very frustrated with his employer, feeling like he did not have a purpose. He began a job search and found Servant’s advertisement. After meeting with Trent and Steve and experiencing a Home Helps Work camp he happily accepted a position with Servants, utilizing his vast background in home repair & construction. Ron feels God lead him to Servants to help others and grow his own personal faith.
Director of Development
Joe began working at Servants in September 2023. As the Director of Development, Joe is responsible for the oversight, planning, and execution of a fundraising program that positions Servants for future success, growth, and sustainability. After many years in sales and marketing, Joe heard God’s call to use his experience and talents in the service of others, and Servants was the perfect place to do that. Joe loves connecting with people, and he looks forward to developing relationships with our donors, volunteers, and homeowners.
Todd began working for Servants in April 2022 as a project manager for the Adams County Healthy Homes Initiative, but his connection to the ministry goes all the way back to 2003 when he joined Servants on a mission trip to Guatemala. In 2007, he went on our first disaster recovery trip to Mississippi. Todd is very familiar with our mission and vision and will be instrumental in sharing that with volunteers and homeowners in Adams County.
Todd Smith joined the Servants staff in December of 2022 as a project manager for the Lancaster County Healthy Homes Initiative. Todd spent 30 years as an electrician, but wasn't feeling fulfilled in his purpose. Servants' mission of building relationships really connected with him, and he looks forward to meeting people and utilizing his experience to fulfill God's purpose and plan for his life.
Diana joined the Servants staff as an Operations Coordinator in July of 2022, but she had been volunteering since 2014! Through her faithful dedication, she has fed hundreds of people while serving as the meal coordinator of our Faith Beyond the Pews workcamp.
She brings that same dedication to this new role as she coordinates multiple aspects of our Healthy Homes Initiative.
Sara joined the Servants’ team in April of 2022. She initially learned about Servants as the waitress for our York Tuesday Team as they gathered to eat breakfast before traveling to their jobs each week. She built excellent rapport with the volunteers, and was excited to join the staff and finds joy in having a job where she gets to serve God and others.
