This week as part of our Transformational Presence month, we will hear from Noah Baskett.
Noah serves as the Senior Director for Community Engagement for the Tacoma Rescue Mission. In this role, Noah oversees and implements the Mission's work in extending its reach into the local Tacoma/Pierce County community. This includes all development, volunteering and outreach activities. Noah is motivated by a heart for those on the margins in the city and a belief that relational leadership development is what leads to real and sustained change in urban communities.
Committed to extending educational opportunities to underserved groups and individuals, Noah is an alumnus of the University of Puget Sound, receiving his bachelors’ degree in history in 2005 and holds a master’s degree in Transformational Leadership from Seattle University in 2013.
Since October of 2011, the term “Transformational Presence” has been a guiding term for Trinity’s ministry posture here in the Bryant Neighborhood. Trinity strives to be an authentic faith community whose presence not only brings relief and compassion to those in crisis, but hope through our efforts around education, advocacy, and authentic relationships with our neighbors. In all that we do as a community, as we learn from one another and step into each others’ lives, our prayer is that mutual transformation takes place among us all. During the month of October, we focus on our commitment here at Trinity to live out this calling ... here in this place ... together.
