Born a Waukegan native raised in Waukegan IL, grew up learning about God. As a young boy the call of God had already been seen over his life but it wasn't until he went away to college that God changed him. After being Baptized and filled with the Holy Spirit he began to learn more about the ways of the God and started to go after the heart of God. In 2001 he graduated from SIU with a Bachelor’s Degree majoring in Radiological Sciences and in December 2015 he completed his Masters in Marriage and Family Counseling from Capella University. Pastor Trenton has been married to his wife for 14 years and they have two beautiful daughters. EPIC Ministries is Pastored by Apostle Daryl O'Neil of Ruach Covenant Church in Chicago, IL.
