Elder and Deacon Nominations

Sunday, February 11th, Trinity has our Annual Meeting. Here, the Trinity Nominating Team will bring the following nominees to the congregation for election as Deacon and Elders at Trinity.

Elders exercise leadership, government, spiritual discernment, and together (as a Session) have responsibilities for the life of the congregation. The office of Deacon is set forth in Scripture as one of compassion and prayer, witness and service after the example of Jesus Christ.

Mike and his wife Holli have attended Trinity since 2004. They have four kids. Mike has been involved in various committees and volunteered in Sunday school for many years.

"We came to Trinity because we heard that there was this church nearby where the people were actually "real." That shared value of authenticity is why we stayed. My prayer to God is often that I can be useful to His Kingdom. My hope is that I can be of use to the Trinity community as a Deacon."
