Missions and Evangelism

Trinity actively supports mission and evangelism projects around the United States and around the world. Specifically we partner with LCMS World Mission and the Lutheran Heritage Foundation to connect with missionaries and mission projects. 

Our congregation has had the opportunity to meet with missionaries to Ethiopia, Eastern Europe, and Southeast Asia and have supported the translation of Luther's Small Catechism into other languages all around the world. Currently we are continuing to Rev. Eric Stinnett and his family as they serve in Ethiopia. 


Pastor Stinnett 

We were blessed to have Pastor Stinnett visit our school in August.  He shared with the students what it is like to do ministry in Ethiopia and how the Christian faith is growing!

About the Stinnetts

Rev. Eric and Johanna Stinnett serve the Lord as career missionaries through The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) in Ethiopia. Eric accepted the call from the LCMS’ Office of International Mission (OIM) to teach at Mekane Yesus Seminary in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. This seminary is dedicated to training faithful Lutheran pastors and other church workers to serve in Ethiopia.

Please pray for Eric, Johanna and their children as they serve in Ethiopia. Pray God gives their entire family strength and peace as they transition to life overseas, learning the culture and the language. Please pray for the church in Ethiopia and for the students attending Mekane Yesus Seminary. Ask God to give Eric His wisdom and guidance as he teaches these students and helps them prepare to become faithful Lutheran pastors, lay evangelists and other professional church workers. Let us give thanks to God that Eric, Johanna and their family have answered the call to serve His people in Ethiopia
