The Lord Christ Jesus is the Bridegroom and Head of the Church - Her Redeemer, Chief Shepherd, and King. In the wisdom and providence of God, He chose to establish local shepherds (we call them elders or pastors) to serve Him in the local gatherings of His people. These men are called to faithfully teach the Word, be dedicated in prayer, protect the doctrine of the church, lead the congregation, care for the flock, and equip the saints for the work of ministry according to the authority of Scripture. The elders of Trinity gather on the first Sunday of every month at 7:00pm for an open meeting, during which members of Trinity are invited to bring forward any possible ministry opportunities; requests; concerns necessitating church discipline; or questions regarding doctrine, church practice, and vision for ministry.
The Lord also established servants in each local church to minister to the physical and practical needs of the congregation. These men are called deacons, and we set them apart to care for the practical needs of the body at Trinity.
