Trinity Church is a Spirit-filled, non-denominational Church made up of people from many different backgrounds. It is our desire to minister to others through encouragement and love, through inspiring and relevant Bible teaching. In 1960 Homer Sheats opened the doors of Trinity Church under the name of Highland Assembly of God Church. In 1963 it became an independent church known as Trinity Church and moved to our present location. In 1963, Pastor Morris Sheats, Homer Sheats’ son, became the Senior Pastor and served in that role for 14 years. He resigned in 1978. In the early 1970’s, a three-week revival caused membership to triple and by 1976 three services were held in a 600 seat Sanctuary. This influx of new members prompted the building of our present Sanctuary that was opened in 1977. Following the resignation of Pastor Morris Sheats in 1978, Burl Pember served as Senior Pastor in 1979. In 1980, Ron Wahlrobe assumed the Senior Pastorate and served until 1984 when he was killed in a tragic plane crash. September 1985 brought Randal Ross to Trinity Church. It was during Pastor Ross’ tenure that the Sanctuary was remodeled. Remodeling was completed in 1992. Randal Ross resigned as Senior Pastor of Trinity Church in September 1997. Gary Kirksey became Senior Pastor of Trinity Church in June 1998 and resigned in August 2000. The leadership of Trinity Church again sought the Lord for His man to lead us. In August 2001, the Lord answered those prayers and Carl Toti accepted the call to become Senior Pastor of Trinity Church. Under the leadership of Pastor Carl Toti, Trinity Church continues to serve the community of Lubbock, providing essential services through our Trinity Outreach Center, Heartline Women’s Clinic, and Trinity Christian School in addition to our Weekend and Mid-week Services.
This is a new season for Trinity. This September we will be relaunching Trinity Young Adults (TYA) ministry. This season is not something new for Trinity, but it is a beginning for Trinity. We believe that there is a place to belong for everyone. The history is in the making for TYA and you are part of it.
