Our Pastors

Pr. Robert G. Schallhorn Jr.

Senior Pastor

Pr. Schallhorn was installed as Pastor of Trinity on February 9, 1986. He came from Messiah Lutheran Church in Chicago, IL, where he served for 6 years. He and his wife, Fran, have 5 children, 4 girls and 1 boy. He presently serves Trinity as the senior pastor, responsible for the administrative oversight of Trinity’s mission and ministry, working closely with the Church Council, Pastor Mielke and Sandra Price. He enjoys preaching and teaching, along with biking, hiking, backpacking, downhill skiing, and gardening. He loves time spent with his family and good friends.

Pr. Spencer Mielke

Associate Pastor

Pastor Mielke came to Trinity in 1998 with his wife, Shelley. Since then the Lord has blessed them with 5 children. He leads the church staff and, besides preaching and teaching, he especially loves working with his teammates on Trinity's ministry to children, youth, families, and marriages. He enjoys vacations with his family (especially to remote and scenic places), exercising, sushi, great conversation, good coffee, and is a bit nostalgic for old school rap (circa 1980's).

Pr. Christopher Davis

Associate Pastor and Director of Youth and Young Adult Discipleship

Pr. Davis moved to Trinity with his wife Rachel and their son in the summer of 2012. Since then, his family has grown to six! He is blessed to serve as Associate Pastor and Chaplain of the school as he leads regular chapel and ministers to the students and families of Trinity. Along with this, he leads youth activities for the middle school and high school youth. He enjoys anything sports related, spending time playing with his children and wife, and taking adventures whenever the opportunity arises.
