The Reverend Horace Tipton serves as rector of Trinity in the Fields. Prior to coming to Trinity, Horace and his wife Anne and their children Horace, Jr. and Mary Shea were missionaries to the Anglican Church of Kenya where they lived from 2005 to 2012. He and Anne founded Planting Faith Ministries in 2004, and Horace served as its executive director while serving in Kenya. Its mission was to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ by working with subsistence farmers in Africa.
