Rev. Lori Carey

Pastor Carey came to Trinity as Lead Pastor in April of 2000 after serving as Co-Pastor of Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Portage, Michigan for ten years and as Pastor at St. Paul's Lutheran in Vincennes, Indiana for four years. A graduate of Berea College in Berea, Kentucky, she recieved her Master's of Divinity from the Lutheran Theological Seminary in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. She has served the larger church as a Stewardship Resource person, an ecumenical dialog participant, and as Co-chair and participant on Synodical and Regional Worship Committees.

A strong desire to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with others is what drew Pastor Carey into ordained ministry. She enjoys a love for worship and music of various styles. She is very interested in the life stories that others share. At the center of her work as a pastor is the belief that God calls diverse people into congregations at specific points in history for a purpose. "The job of the congregation, then, is to discern our various gifts and discover how God would work through the unique people of God in this place."
