Pastor's Biography

Rev. Mariah Hayden is an outside-the-box curator, lover of dissonance, and energetic minister who enjoys helping people connect their gifts and interests with the needs of others. Before moving to Ohio, she served urban churches in Denver, Colorado with the United Methodist Church and focused her ministry on serving those at the margins of society--especially the homeless, addicted/in recovery, those struggling with mental illness, prisoners re-entering the neighborhood, and the GLBT community. In addition to her ministry with Trinity, she runs an urban farm (UpCycle Farm) on Cleveland’s west side where she raises chickens, keeps bees, and grows a wide range of produce for sale to the surrounding community. Pr. Mariah lives in Cleveland with her twin 9 year olds, her partner, a black lab, a grumpy old cat, and a dozen (or more) baby chicks in the basement. In her free time, she enjoys quilting, reading, baking, and riding her bike.
