Rev. Cameron Trimble
Rev. Cameron Trimble is a serial entrepreneur committed to the triple bottom line – a concern for people, profit and the planet. Driven by an adventurous spirit, she co-founded and serves as the CEO of Convergence, an international church consultancy. She serves as a senior consultant, a frequent speaker on national speaking circuits, is a pilot and an author.
Cameron is particularly focused on human transformation and leadership. Her coaching clients are primarily executive leaders going through dynamic culture transformations. Diversity, she believes, is the source of lasting innovation and the driver of fair profit.
As a pilot, Cameron learns many of her leadership lessons through the adventures of the cockpit of her airplane. Her most recent book, published in 2019 is called “Piloting Church: Helping Your Congregation Take Flight.” She has also enjoyed a career as an ordained pastor in the United Church of Christ, serving as the pastor of four congregations in the Atlanta area. Hers has been an eclectic career path – undoubtedly with more adventures to come – and she welcomes the wisdom she gains each day on the way.
