Pastor Jeff M. Otterman just celebrated seventeen years in the ministry. He is a collector of rare books, fossils, and other strange antiquities. He has and continues to learn from our youngest students who often have the most keen insights on who God is. He works with youth of all ages and the families they come from. He loves to laugh and have fun while also creating positive memories for all of those who know him. Please feel welcome to stop in and say hello anytime his door is open!

Education Director

Pam Brockberg

Together with the Board of Education, I plan, organize and carry out the educational ministries at Trinity.  We have Sunday school at 9:30 am Sundays for 3 year olds and up.  We have Confirmation, Spark and re:form on Wednesdays at 6:30 pm for students in Kindergarten through 9th grade.  We celebrate many milestones in our students lives from baptism to graduation through our Milestone Ministry program.  We arrange for the children's Christmas program, Vacation Bible School, acolytes and many other fun celebrations throughout the year with our families.  We also plan adult educational opportunities.  Please visit with me or a member of the board with suggestions or ideas or to volunteer to help.
