Danny Trapp

Pastor

Rev. Danny Trapp joined Robinson Presbyterian Church as our full-time pastor on March 1st, 2021, after serving us as a supply pastor a few Sundays in January and February. Danny is a native of Sumter SC and a graduate of Wofford College and Union Presbyterian Seminary at Charlotte. He has been married to Scottie for 36 years and they are parents to adult daughters Simmons Purdy, 31 and Catherine Trapp, 28. They have lived in Charlotte for 35 years, the last 33 of them in the Cotswold neighborhood.

 

Danny took a circuitous route to ministry. After college graduation he became a management trainee at NCNB (Bank of America) and worked in various finance and banking positions in Columbia and Charlotte for 25 years. Life-long Presbyterians, Danny and Scottie joined Myers Park Presbyterian church in 1989 and immediately became involved in the life of the church. Danny began feeling a pull toward ministry in the mid-1990’s and, by his own account, “fought the call for 10 years” before enrolling in seminary in 2007. This move coincided with a vocational shift and he left the corporate world to manage a non-profit program that worked with the court system on alternative sentencing for felony offenders and later ran the case management team for the county pretrial release program.

 
While in seminary Danny was a popular supply preacher in the area and served for over a year as the stated supply for Star Presbyterian Church in Montgomery County. Since his graduation in 2013 Danny has served as the Executive Director of the interfaith group Mecklenburg Ministries, Designated Pastor of First Presbyterian Church in Lincolnton NC and Interim Pastor for Philadelphia Presbyterian Church in Mint Hill. A member of the Presbytery of Charlotte, Danny currently serves on the Committee for Preparation for Ministry (CPM).
 
When not working in or for the church, Danny enjoys spending time with Scottie, his children and the triplets as well as reading mystery and thriller novels, visiting breweries and attending live baseball games and music events. Litchfield Beach SC is a favorite place of respite for the Trapp family.
