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