Leadership at Trinity

We thrive on our leadership team.

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 is an elder in the United Methodist Church and is our senior pastor.  He is pastor at both Trinity United Methodist Church and Junction City United Methodist Church.


Our Music Minister

Christine McKenney is our Music Minister, and we are so blessed by her gifts. She is a talented singer, and plays piano and guitar. 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.  Her daughter Sierra Pagan also sings for our services.
