Dr. Zach Edwards
Zach Edwards answered God's call to be the new senior
pastor of Trinity, beginning in November 2019. Zach had
previously served as a church planting catalyst in
Wyoming for the North American Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention since 2015. He and his wife, Amber, have a daughter, Taryn, and a son, Ryan. Zach is a life-long Southern Baptist, having grown up
as a “pastor’s kid” (PK) in Mansfield, Texas. He made a profession of faith in Christ in March 1986 and surrendered to fulltime Christian ministry in January 1999. Pastor Zach firmly believes that "The local church belongs to Jesus (Matt. 16:18) and
exists for His glory (Eph. 3:21) as He accomplishes His redemptive mission on earth through her (Acts 1:8, 2:46-47, 11:19-26)."
Vicki Knapp serves as Trinity’s office manager. She has served in
several positions at Trinity in her more than 30 years as a member,
including youth worker, VBS director, Bible study teacher and part time office staff. In 1997, she accepted the full-time position as office
manager. She and her husband, Gerry, raised five children at Trinity
and three of the five met their spouses at the church. Vicki says the
best part of her life is watching grandchildren grow up in church.

In his free time, he enjoys studying God's Word and playing video games.
