Trinity Organization

Spiritual leadership is provided to worshipers by an ordained pastor from The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS).  Since August 2015 Trinity has a Director of Christian Education (DCE) Intern who works with youth and children as well as our education programs. Trinity also has a part-time church secretary and a director of music who serve as members of the staff.

Trinity is governed by a church council elected annually from congregation volunteers. Besides the governing officers, the council is made up of elected deacons ministering to programs in Christian Life, Youth and Education, Worship and Music, Inreach, Outreach, Stewardship, Property, and Communications.

Trinity is not affiliated with any German church body and receives no regular funding from the German church tax. However, Trinity members eligible for the church tax can request that those funds be redirected to Trinity. Please contact Church Office for details.
