Pastor Maggie has been on staff at Trinity since 1997 and has been our Pastor since February 2019. At the 2019 Annual Congregational Meeting on February 3rd Trinity extended a contract call to Maggie to Trinity Lutheran Church Brooks and she accepted that call. Maggie's role at Trinity previously was as Youth and Family Minister. Maggie has over 30 years experience working with youth and families in local congregations and across the wider church in the capacity of Leadership training and development. She has had the privilege of serving as Key Note Speaker at Camps, Youth Gatherings, Women's events and Clergy gatherings.
Maggie has 5 children who each have families of their own adding the blessing of 15 grandchildren so far! Time spent with them is always pure gift and Bear Lake, Utah a Holy place for her! Time spent daily with husband John and with Lady London Blue, her Great Dane, brings renewal and joy.
Maggie takes great joy in writing worship resources and bible studies for youth and adults, being a kid at Vacation Bible School, storytelling ANYTIME, leading worship and preaching the Word of God when so called. Hanging out with young people is truly a privilege and the best moments of walking the journey of faith with them come when the light-bulb goes on and they grow in knowing the love of Jesus and His call in their life to Follow Him! She has been blessed to go on several mission trips to Mexico, Belize, Jamaica and Costa Rica.
In the last few years she has been able to realize a few life dreams - riding a camel and whale watching on the Pacific Northwest coastline. Maggie first dreamed of being a pastor at around 5 years of age, that dream has come true by the grace of God and she wonders what holy surprises God has in store for the coming years!
