Greetings! My name is Judy Oguich (pronounced O-gish) and I am currently in my 20th year here at Trinity. My membership in the Virginia Annual Conference is as an ordained deacon and as a certified Director of Christian Education. I am originally from Ohio, and still have family members in Columbus. I received a Bachelor of Arts from Mary Baldwin College in Staunton, Virginia and a Masters of Religious Education from The Divinity School at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina.
The greatest blessing of my vocation is that I work with persons of all ages – children, youth, and adults – enabling them to live out their Christian discipleship.
I welcome any and all ideas concerning Christian education and programming here at Trinity. I’m excited that we are now able to offer two schedules of Sunday School – 9:30 and 10:45 a.m. Our mission here at Trinity is to “be and make disciples of Jesus Christ.” We do this as we connect, grow, and serve and we invite you to be a part of our journey!
Jen Williams joined Trinity’s staff in July 2019 as the kids director! Jen grew up in Pittsburgh, PA and loves snow and Pittsburgh sports teams! Jen attended Grove City College, a private Christian college north of Pittsburgh, and graduated with degrees in early childhood and elementary education. She relocated to the Richmond, VA area for a teaching position in Hanover County, where she was a 5th grade teacher for 6 years.
Jen also spent 11 years as a youth director in Mechanicsville, VA. It was her previous experiences in teaching and youth ministry that led to Jen’s interest in working in the kids ministry at Trinity!
Jen enjoys teaching kids about Jesus through fun and engaging activities and environments, equipping volunteers to build relationships with the kids they are leading (and share their faith with them), and partnering with parents to help their kids develop an authentic faith in God! She believes every kid should have a tribe of 5 adults who are investing them and a church community where they belong and are known.
Bryce Miller is excited to be back for his 3rd production at Trinity United Methodist Church as the Director of Student Ministry. Arriving in January 2017, Bryce continues to make a welcoming space for youth so that they can learn about the Lord and the church among their peers at weekly meetings and by giving back to their community through service and mission. You might have seen him as the bass player in Modern: the 9:30 Service. Other roles he has played include the head chef in Vacation Bible School: Babylon, an understudy for the role of worship leader. When asked what he looks forward to most this year, he responded, “I look forward to singing along to all the show tunes with the rest of the kids.” He also wanted to plug a new musical he is co-writing with John Gildenstein, a former student of the great Andrew Lloyd Webber (not the one you’re thinking of). When asked to comment, Gildenstein explained the concept, “It’s about this guy who lives on the orlop deck of a pirate ship, and through song, dance, and a little bit of fun helps the captain realize that his true passion is growing pumpkins on a remote island in the Caribbean.”
Raised in Roanoke Virginia, Bryce attended Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry and specialized in divination, before attending Campbell University graduating with a bachelor’s of arts degree in Christian Ministry. When he isn’t working, Bryce enjoys listening to and playing music, watching soccer when he isn’t playing in the game itself, and hanging out with friends, as well as telling people they have bad taste in music (☹). He likes meeting new people and cannot wait to meet you, so feel free to introduce yourself whenever you see him. He is also not good with names so forgive him, but has an awesome talent for creating nicknames for his students!

Dr. Charles Staples has been Director of Music Ministries at Trinity since 1991 and has led its choirs and ensembles in worship and in concerts for nearly 3 decades. Aside from its yearly services of Lessons and Carols, the choir has performed numerous major choral works and has even participated in a concert in Carnegie Hall under John Rutter.
With his doctorate in piano performance, his playing has been described in the Richmond Times-Dispatch as “forceful…but unforced, as natural as breathing.” A native of Alabama and honors graduate of the Alabama School of Fine Arts, Staples won the Van Cliburn full tuition scholarship to the Cincinnati College-Conservatory and completed his graduate work at Stony Brook University, training under David Bar-Illan, Martin Canin and Bernard Greenhouse. Aside from solo and chamber performances too numerous to count, Staples has been soloist in concertos with the Richmond Symphony as well as the CCM Concert Orchestra, the Congress of Strings, the North Carolina Symphony and University of Richmond Orchestra. He recently made his 6th appearance with the Richmond Philharmonic playing the Rachmaninoff 2nd concerto. He has also performed recitals in New York’s Town Hall, Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall and in live broadcasts and concerts on WGUC (Cincinnati), WQXR (NYC) and VPM in Richmond.
He teaches on the piano faculties of VCU and the Greenspring International Academy of Music. [He] “proved yesterday to be fully up to the technical and expressive demands of the Rachmaninoff concerto … the pianist lifted more than 300 listeners out of their seats in a cheering ovation after a performance that was both bravura and lyrically sensitized.”
