A Welcome from Our Staff

Pastor ShankGreetings to you on behalf of Trinity Lutheran Ministries. My name is Pastor John Shank.  It is our sincere desire to welcome you here among us.  We have this desire because we ourselves have been welcomed by our Lord, Jesus Christ. Yes, no matter who we are or what we have done, our Lord welcomes us with forgiveness.  I pray that you will be gathered with us, not only on our website, but also in our church.
