Meet the Team at Holy Trinity Church
The church, according to the biblical analogy, is a like a human body made up of various parts. Each one of these parts has a role to play in Jesus’s work in the world and in the church. The Holy Spirit works all this out, calling individuals to various ministries and distributing gifts as he deems best. Each of these body parts need the other in order for the whole body to work well in service to God. This explains the church staff.
We are those called to serve the whole community of Holy Trinity and its work in the world. But everyone at Holy Trinity gets to play in the game. Deacons, priests, bishops, teachers and church council members have important roles to play, but not the sole or main roles. Everyone in the body is made significant by the Holy Spirit and are deserving of dignity and honor. It is our delight and privilege to serve you and you in turn serve others.
