Spirit-led and Elder-governed

Trinity is a church that is governed by the oversight of elders. Elders are chosen based on the criteria of I Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:5-9 and rely on the Holy Spirit to lead them as they advise church staff as well as guide the vision and mission of Trinity.

New elders are vetted by the Elder Board and then presented to the church for congregational input. After receiving input, the Elder Board determines whether to move forward with a candidate and confirm that candidate as an elder. Elders serve for three-year terms that can be extended to four years by mutual agreement between the elder and the board. Elders meet twice monthly to pray over and discuss the work of Trinity Church. Below you will see our current elders as well as any elders currently up for nomination. 



Elder Nominees

Trinity is a church that is governed by the oversight of elders. Elders are chosen based on the criteria of 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:5-9. Each year we have new elders roll onto the board while others roll off. 

Currently, two elders are up for nomination in the church and we present them here before they are confirmed to give you an opportunity to raise any questions or concerns you may have with their nomination. Our current nominees are John Kastener and Jake McFerren.
