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.

Pastor Jared DeBlieckWelcome! I’m Pastor Jared DeBlieck. At Trinity Lutheran Ministries, Jesus is at the center of everything we do. What a joy it would be to meet you and to have you join us where our Lord calls us together. My prayer is to see you at worship where we receive the promises of Jesus—His Word of mercy and Grace. “Oh, magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together!” Ps. 34:3.
