The Rev. Pam Driesell became the fourth Senior Pastor of Trinity Presbyterian Church, Atlanta, in October 2010.

She led the congregation to a successful chartering with 115 members after two years in the field.
Pam has served on numerous councils and commissions and currently serves as the moderator of the Tri-Presbytery New Church Development Commission and as an advisory council member of the Princeton Institute for Youth Ministry.
Pam earned her Master of Divinity degree from Princeton Theological Seminary, where she was awarded the James T. Galloway Prize in Expository Preaching. She holds a master of liberal studies degree from Hollins University and a bachelor of science with academic honors from James Madison University.
Pam has two sons, Ty and Walker.
