“We value our historic affiliation with the Methodist church and I am pleased to welcome Bishop Trimble to the University of Evansville’s Board of Trustees and to the Indiana Area,” said University President, Thomas A. Kazee.
At the conclusion of the day’s work, which included a lunch with the UE Alumni Board, Bishop Trimble was joined for dinner at the Rolling Hills Country Club in Newburgh by the Rev. Dr. Philip A. Amerson and spouse, Elaine; and University Chaplain the Rev. Dr. Tamara K. Gieselman, and spouse, Rev. Mitch Gieselman. Dr. Amerson served as the Edgar M. KcKown keynote speaker as part of the University’s 163rd Founders Day observance on Sunday, providing a compelling address, Truth on the Scaffold: Living Toward an Ecology of Hope.
Following the Founders Day service, at which Bishop Trimble brought episcopal greetings, he was joined at a popular Evansville barbecue restaurant by Southwest District Superintendent Steve Beutler and his wife Jayna, along with other UM clergy.
Bishop Trimble clearly will not be a stranger at UE, and that it will be his ongoing desire to maintain and strengthen the relationship between the University and the Indiana Conference of The United Methodist Church.
