Leadership at Trinity

We thrive on your leadership.

Trinity United Methodist Church is primarily a volunteer led church. Much of the work of the church is directed by our church council, a group of volunteer leaders and our pastor.

Our Pastor

The Rev. Dr. Scott Allen (as of July 2021) comes to Trinity UMC from Kuna United Methodist Church in Kuna, Idaho, where he was serving as senior pastor.

Our Music Minister

Christine McKenney is our Music Minister, and we are so blessed by her gifts. She is a talented singer, and plays guitar too. Chris has long history of teaching music and sharing her passion with students. Chris has degrees in Music Education and Secondary Education from the Oregon College of Education. She has also completed coursework at Portland State University in music. Chris has worked for Lincoln County Schools in the past and currently operates her own music studio, Mckenney Music Studio in Newport, OR.
