The Rev. Matt Burnett
Most importantly I am married to Lauren, (since 1983) and am father to 3 sons: Chris (born 1991), Jeremy (born 1993), and Alex (born 1998). I am originally from Dallas, Texas and attended Texas A&M University where I played soccer and received undergraduate and graduate degrees (whoop!) in Health Education focused on International Health and then Urban and Regional Planning specializing in Health and Health Care Systems in Developing Countries. After graduate school I went to work for Compassion International. Lauren and I lived in the Dominican Republic; then we and 2 of the boys lived in Australia. I am deeply grateful and humbled to have also worked with amazing colleagues in another 16 countries. Continuing the trend, Lauren currently works at Compassion. She also raised 3 boys and remodeled a 100+ year-old Victorian in Pittsburgh, amongst other things. Just sayin’.
After sneaking 95% of a M.Ed., I later founded and was Owner/President of Knowledge Builders Inc., a small training and consulting company that designed or developed or implemented technical documentation and training, including stand-up instruction, web- and DVD-based instruction, and live simulation instruction amongst other types for companies such as IBM and The National Forest Service, US West Communications, MCI and British Telecom, Oracle, The South American Missionary Society, and Trinity School for Ministry.
I am doing doctoral work on how imagination can reinvigorate theology and renew Faith. I am honored to support the Diocese of the Rocky Mountains as the Canon to the Ordinary, and my dream job is my current one - Senior Pastor of Holy Trinity Anglican Church.

The Rev. Jim Dorman
Jim grew up in the coastal areas of the Gulf of Mexico in southern Alabama and Louisiana. He is a 1977 graduate of the “Olde War Skule” at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, after which he spent over 26 years on active duty as a commissioned officer in the US Air Force. Jim came to faith in Christ in his late teens in the early 1970s. He and Susanne (a fourth generation Californian from Sacramento) have been married over 37 years and are the parents of three children and the proud grandparents of four eminently bright, talented and good looking grandchildren. Jim and Susanne spent most of their adult / child rearing years as charismatic – pentecostal – evangelical Christians. Since 2009 they have responded to the Lord’s call to become Anglican Christians, living out the Christian life on the Canterbury Trail. Jim holds graduate degrees in both Physics (University of California – Davis) and Theology (Oxford University), and has a keen interest in the intersection of science, theology and philosophy. Ordained to the Diaconate in October 2015, he currently leads a small group for men on Friday mornings and serves at liturgical services as often as possible.
