Our Team

Autumn and Robbie Parks

Autumn and Robbie, planters of Vineyard Trailblazers Church of State College

Autumn and Robbie have been married since 2016 and have travelled the world together, living in Arizona, South Carolina, Utah, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and South Africa. They joined the Vineyard shortly before their marriage and have thrived in its balanced environment of solid biblical teaching, passionate worship, and experience of the Holy Spirit. Among their many interests, Autumn loves creativity, exercise, cooking, and dog training, while Robbie is into D&D, politics, theology, and music. Autumn is working on writing and illustrating a children’s book and webcomic, and Robbie recently finished his Master of Divinity degree through Liberty University. This is their first official church plant, but they have started or been active in three other new churches together.

Sarah DeSmet

Sarah, founding member of Vineyard Trailblazers Church of State College

Sarah and her family moved to State College right around the same time as Robbie and Autumn, and they ended up neighbors. Sarah and Autumn became fast friends, and together they enjoy playing with their children and reaching people for Jesus. When Robbie and Autumn decided to start Trailblazers, Sarah was right there, ready to go from the beginning, a constant support who has consistently given her time and effort to help make ministry happen.
