Timothy herndon


Tim was born into a Christian home in Illinois—but as the son of a military family, home was moveable and varied before settling into life in Georgia during elementary school. Leaving Georgia for college at Princeton University (AB, 1989), Tim met and married Debbie also in 1989. After a few years working in the financial world, he moved to Dallas to study at Dallas Theological Seminary (ThM, 1997). After 15 years of ministry at a church in Vermont, Tim was called to help launch Providence Presbyterian Church in 2013. Tim and Debbie have four young adult children and a dog.

Isaac Trudeau

Ruling Elder (Moderator)

Isaac and his wife Becky live in Lebanon, NH with their three sons.  They love to explore the great outdoors by hiking, camping, mountain biking, and skiing.  Isaac and Becky met in Maryland, where they married and lived for 10 years.  Isaac longed to return to the open spaces, snowy winters, and mountains where he grew up, so in 2017 they packed up and started a fresh adventure in NH!  Isaac works as a manufacturing engineer in the Upper Valley; Becky homeschools their boys and occasionally does freelance writing.  They have a passion for outreach in Lebanon and beyond, and are excited to be a part of this work at Providence OPC! 

Eric Streit

Ruling Elder (Clerk)

Eric was blessed to be raised in a family that feared God and hoped in the saving work of Jesus Christ.  Eric moved with his family to New Hampshire in 2013 to work as a mechanical engineer for a local manufacturing company and has been a member at Providence Presbyterian Church since 2016 while it was still a mission work of the OPC.  Eric and his wife Jessica have 4 daughters and enjoy spending time with them playing games, reading together, eating good food, and being outdoors.  Eric was ordained as an elder at Providence Church in August 2020.
