Interim Senior Pastor, Peter Trzinski
Pastor Peter and his wife Saundra were first called by the Lord to serve as a pastoral couple, and it began our 38-year odyssey of service to the Lord and His people to this day. Whereas they both had been working as Civil Engineers, they gladly abandoned their secular careers to work where the Lord had called them. Building bridges to God for people is far more exceedingly joyful work than building bridges for the traveling public.
Pastor Peter is a huge sports fan and was a fan of NFL football where he grew up in the Vince Lombardi era of Wisconsin football, IE, the Green Bay Packers. One of Pastor Peter’s favorite Lombardi quotes is, “People who work together will win, whether it be against complex football defenses, or the problems of modern society.” This quote reminds him of what Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 12:12-31 and Ephesians 4:1-8, in regard to unity and organizational success in Christ’s church.
His wife Saundra loves her crafts (beading professional and has been published) and her grandbabies. They are blessed with eight (8) grandbabies and three (3) great-grandchildren.
