Please Welcome Our Interim Pastor, Reverend Bernie Schey



He and his wife Ingeborg moved to Temple, Texas with their black lab dog „Nisse“ last year at the end of June after having served Trinity Lutheran church of Copperas Cove, Texas for over 16 years. Prior to his time in Copperas Cove, Pastor Schey has serviced parishes in Lake Charles and New Orleans, Louisiana and Schulenburg, Texas. A large part of his work during those years was serving military families. Pastor and Ingeborg have three grown children: Rebecca, who lives with her husband Tim in Los Angeles, Katie, who lives in Lakeway, Texas, with her husband John and twin daughters Liv and Elin; and Bjorn, who lives in Austin, Texas.

Grateful for this opportunity to serve the people of Trinity in Frankfurt a second time this year, Pastor Schey is looking forward to getting to visit with more of you in the next couple of months.
