Priests Serving Trinity

The Rev. Johnnette Shane, Vicar

Johnnette grew up in the Diocese of Kentucky and was baptized as a toddler in another Episcopal
Church with red doors. She was ordained in the Diocese of California and served a church in
Fremont, California prior to joining Trinity as Vicar. During and after seminary, she served
as a chaplain at two community hospitals and a psychiatric hospital. Prior to seminary,
she practiced law for many years in New Mexico. Having worked in public interest law and
in nonprofit agencies over the years, she is committed to social justice ministry and the
inclusion of all in God's Church.

She went to college in Tennessee, law school in Minnesota and New Mexico, and seminary at
Church Divinity School of the Pacific in Berkeley, California. She still has family in Kentucky
and Tennessee. If you don't find her working at Trinity, you might find her walking with
my dog, Harvey, around Kirksville, hiking, fishing or perusing the farmers' market on a

The Rev. Carrol Davenport, Priest Associate

I grew up in Norfolk, Virginia and as an active participant in a large Southern Baptist Church that sat on the edge of an affluent white neighborhood on one side and a small African American neighborhood on the other. As public schools were forced to integrate I watched those issues play out in the institutional church. Those early church experiences as well as my parents’ acceptance of all people helped to shape my own commitment to the inclusion of all people in the life of the Church

In 1993 I was ordained to ministry in the Southern Baptist Church of my childhood.  Opportunities for ministry as a woman were not abundant in Baptist churches, and as the theology of the Southern Baptists moved to the right I found myself moving to the left and eventually pursued ordination in The Episcopal Church. I was ordained to the priesthood in 2006.

My full-time work since 2006 has been as chaplain and bereavement coordinator for Hospice of Northeast Missouri. We serve 11 rural counties. When I am not working I enjoy spending time with family as well as reading and writing and taking photographs.
