Secretary

CHRISTY SANTOSUOSSO

I am the secretary at Trinity and have been involved in various ministries over the past twenty-five years, including youth ministry, VBS, and worship.

Youth & Family

SHAWN & KRISTY BATES

RICK HOBSON

I am seventy-one years old and have been married to my wife, Vickie, for forty-six years. I was baptized into Christ on July 1, 2007. I am continuing in my never-ending spiritual journey.

My parents began attending Trinity before I was born, and I was the first baby in the nursery 39 years ago when we moved into our current location. I accepted Christ after a Sunday evening service when I was 6 years old. After marrying the girl of my dreams in 2002, we stayed in the area and have been raising our growing family and working at Harvey Cedars Bible Conference. I have a passion for foster care/adoption, the outdoors, cooking,…

Currently, he is challenged and rewarded by digging into the Word of God and discovering more facets of the Savior. The role of Elder…
