We Are
Servant-Leaders

We Make It Our Mission to Serve Our
Lord & Savior by Serving the Community

What’s a
Servant-Leader?

Defining Purpose—God’s Work, Our Hands

A servant-leader focuses primarily on the growth and well-being of people and the communities to which they belong. While traditional leadership generally involves the accumulation & exercise of power by one at the “top of the pyramid.” Servant-leadership is different. The servant-leader shares power, puts the needs of others first and helps people develop and perform as highly as possible.

We believe that Jesus of Nazareth was the full embodiment of what it means to be a servant-leader.

At Holy Trinity, we live out these values not only in the way we interact with each other, but also by what we do. After all, this is where the rubber hits the road and we can make a difference in the surrounding community.

You can too.

When you visit, you can expect Pastor Rebecca and the entire congregation to embrace you. We have opportunities for Bible study, community service, support and plenty of time for social interactions with others. What’s more, you’ll feel you’re making a difference in the world.

Visit our outreach, education, and community groups pages to see where God is calling you to fit in. Better yet . . . want something you don’t see? Start a group and gather—Holy Trinity is always open to grow and change!

Jesus didn’t turn anyone away. Neither do we.

What People Are Saying About Holy Trinity in Bellerose

Holy Trinity immediately felt like family when we were looking for a church. Being new to the area we checked several churches but felt so comfortable at Holy Trinity we decided to make it home.

I think God took me by the hand and led me here.

We’ve raised 3 kids here and have made wonderful friends in the congregation. We could not have asked for a better church
— Carol Albasini
Initially I was looking for a faith based community for me and my children that focused on outreach. Did I hit the jackpot! Holy Trinity has fulfilled all my expectations of what a Church should be and more!

My children and I participate in so many ways to serve our neighbors near and far! My faith has grown beyond measure through the various Christian educational resources offered.

I am grateful for my “extended family” which is the congregation. I am blessed to be a member of Holy Trinity,
— Linda Lago
 
 
Couldn’t think of a nicer group of people who, along with me, call Holy Trinity their church home. Glad to be part of this family since 2001.
— Herb Guschkat
