Trinity Christian School is proud to announce and welcome Tim Hurt as the school’s new performing arts director. Hurt will assume a teaching role as band director and a leadership role with oversight of the performing arts including band, choir, orchestra, and theater.
Hurt studied Music Education at the highly acclaimed Frost School of Music at the University of Miami in Florida, where his primary instrument was the alto saxophone. His musicianship also extends to the clarinet, flute, guitar, and piano.
While at college he became involved with campus ministry and subsequently the local church. It was during this time that he had his first experience leading worship and realized he was being called to music ministry. Hurt has spent the last 19 years as a worship pastor in Florida and North Carolina and this experience afforded him many opportunities to both teach and lead instrumental and vocal groups. He also has many years of experience teaching private music lessons.
Although new to the Trinity faculty, Hurt’s family has been involved with the school since 2015 when he and wife Charlotte enrolled their three children, who are currently in the fifth, eighth, and tenth grades respectively. In 2016, Charlotte joined the Trinity family as the Elementary Guidance Counselor.
“We love Trinity,” says Hurt. “We eat, sleep, and breathe everything purple and black.” Hurt is excited about what he sees as immense potential in the student community at Trinity. “I’m looking forward to encouraging students to pursue the performing arts. I want to see them dream, explore, and create. I’m also looking forward to engaging with Trinity parents as they encourage their children’s unique creative gifts.”
Mark Anthony, Head of School, is equally excited about Hurt’s addition to the Trinity faculty. “Trinity Christian School is committed to nurturing an environment where the arts can thrive and our administration and board have been praying for a person like Mr. Tim Hurt to come along. Not only does he possess the experience and talent to lead our program, but he embodies a passion for students and a heart for God that will compel our students forward in their giftedness.”
