At Trinity, we have a rich history of faithful leaders who have helped build who Trinity Church is today. We are extremely grateful for God's faithfulness, blessing, and provision throughout the decades.
1960 - Homer Sheats established Trinity Church as Highland Assembly of God.
1963 - His son, Morris Sheats, became the Pastor. Under his leadership, the name was changed to Trinity Church and was moved to the current location.
1970 - Trinity experienced a three-week revival during which the membership tripled. This growth resulted in the 1977 construction of the Sanctuary that we still worship in today.
1977 - Joyce Herron started Trinity Christian School as a ministry of Trinity Church. Dr. Sheats served as the Senior Pastor for 14 years, resigning in 1978.
1979 - Berl Pember led the Church while the search for a new Senior Pastor continued.
1980 - Ron Wahlrobe became the Senior Pastor. Under his leadership, the construction of the Education 1 building began. Pastor Ron was tragically killed in a plane crash in 1984. The Trinity members and leaders joined together to seek God’s face and persevere through this challenging time. The construction was completed during a difficult season without a pastor.
1985 - Randall Ross became the Senior Pastor. Pastor Ross led the church through a time of great growth. Facilities and ministries were expanded. Pastor Ross resigned in 1997.
1995 - We purchased the University property and opened Heartline, now known as For Her, Trinity's pregnancy resource ministry.
1998 - Gary Kirksey became the Senior Pastor in June and resigned in August 2000. This season was a difficult one and the leadership of Trinity once again sought the Lord for wisdom in selecting a Senior Pastor at this critical time in the life of Trinity.
2001 - The Lord answered those prayers and brought Carl Toti to be the Senior Pastor. His leadership has restored Trinity to a very healthy and vibrant Church in Lubbock. He is now the most tenured Senior Pastor of Trinity, and the consistency of his leadership is creating a place for amazing ministry and impact to happen.
2014 - Central, Kidsplace, and the Chapel were opened to facilitate new ministries.
2017 - The Sanctuary was remodeled and expanded.
2021 - Heartline was rebranded and renamed to For Her.
