Trent Casto serves as Senior Pastor at Covenant Church of Naples PCA. He is passionate about communicating God’s Word with Biblical integrity, building up the church to be fully devoted followers of Christ, and promoting discipleship in the family, community, and world.
After earning a degree in finance at West Virginia University, God called Trent and his wife, Emily, to vocational ministry. They began this journey of faith as missionaries in the Czech Republic and were subsequently called to pastoral ministry in St. Louis, Missouri, Dallas, Texas, and Naples, Florida.
Trent earned a Master of Divinity degree from Covenant Theological Seminary and a doctorate from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, where his thesis explored the impact of wealth on spiritual formation. Trent is a lifelong distance runner who, since moving to Florida with Emily and their three children, also enjoys golf and tennis.
In January 2017, Todd joined the staff of Covenant as our Grow Pastor, a new title designation that is part of our overall strategy of Worship, Grow, Serve and Go as the next steps in living out the mission and vision of Covenant. Todd leads Covenant in the creation and execution of a discipleship plan that effectively develops and deploys disciples of all ages at Covenant Church of Naples to make disciples in their family, community, and world.
Pastor Todd is passionate about seeing a multiplying discipleship movement that dramatically impacts families and the local community, ultimately impacting the world by the power of the Holy Spirit working through changed lives. Todd and his wife, Cindy, along with children, Eleah, Katie and Miguel, come to us from College Church in Wheaton, Illinois.
