SUMMARY: 

 

The Director of Children’s Ministry will have an emphasis on discipleship for young children and their families.  The overall job purpose is to provide a safe and loving environment for children, parents, and volunteer leaders to work together to know God's love, learn God's Word and have fellowship with God's people.

 

Trinity is not your typical Reformed Church.  Trinity is made up of people from varied backgrounds: Lutheran, Catholic, Methodist, Baptists, and some from the Jewish faith to name a few.  Some came here from no church background at all, but have found God here.  Some people of Trinity make their homes here in Brown Deer, but many live in the adjacent communities.  Our vision calls for us to reach our families, our friends, and our neighbors, and to bring them into a relationship with Jesus.
