Autumn and Robbie, planters of Vineyard Trailblazers Church of State College

Hi, I'm Robbie, and this is Autumn, and we're so glad you're here. We are the co-senior pastors of Vineyard Trailblazers Church of State College. You can read our story of how God led us to plant this church back in the midst of the pandemic of 2020.

Autumna and I have been married for seven years and we love to travel the world together. We've lived in six different states and countries, from Pennsylvania to South Africa. We joined the Vineyard right before we got married and we've been blessed by its balanced approach to biblical teaching, worship, and the Holy Spirit. We have a lot of hobbies and interests, like art, exercise, cooking, dog training, board games, D&D, politics, theology, and music. Autumn's working on a children's book and a webcomic, and I recently earned my Master of Divinity degree from Liberty University. We would be delighted to meet you. We love making new friends. Come on out to our church or one of our midweek groups, and let's get to know each other!

Sarah, founding member

Hi, I'm Sarah and I'm so happy to be part of Trailblazers. I moved to State College around the same time as Robbie and Autumn, and we became neighbors and best friends. We love to hang out with our kids and share the love of Jesus with others. When Robbie and Autumn told me they were starting a new church, I was all in. I wanted to support them and help them make ministry happen. Autumn showed me how to make Jesus the center of my life, and now I'm all in, all the time. This is my church, and I hope you join us!
