ministry opportunities

For us at Trinity, our beliefs are more than our words; our most important expression of our beliefs comes in our service to others. Our campus is a busy and active place every day of the week.

We serve one other within our own Trinity community through our Pastoral Care Ministries. Whether the situation is one of crisis, illness, sadness or great joy, our volunteers are there with a meal, an encouraging word, prayers or regular, one-on-one meetings.

We feel a strong commitment to serve the community around us as well, which we do through our many Outreach Ministries. And our outreach goes well beyond the community we live in. Every summer, members of the Trinity community spread out across the nation to serve others who are in need.

We believe that our faith is strengthened when we are together, and we have many Fellowship Ministries where groups gather around a common interest.

We strive to be faithful servants, and we believe that you will be able to find the ministry in which you can serve and strengthen your relationship with God.
