I’m a native of Kansas City, went to grade school at Hale Cook and graduated from Southwest High School. From there, I attended Baker University for two years and graduated from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas with a degree in Public Finance and Administration. After graduation, I started working in commercial real estate and sold, developed and managed apartment properties in Missouri and Kansas.
My first class at Saint Paul School of Theology was taught by Dr. Jim Simpson, our District Superintendent. I’m grateful to those who felt I could bring something unique to Trinity with my work background and theological training. I believe that learning is a lifelong experience, especially holy learning which keeps you young at heart and happier in spirit.
My door is always open. Come have a sit and talk. I look forward to meeting you.
Alicia has been at Trinity since May 2004. She is married to Chalmer “Chief” Alcorn, and they have two daughters, Cassidy and Destiny. She is a wannabe urban homesteader and in her spare time enjoys canning and trying new recipes.
Vocal Music Director
Becky has a degree in Music Education and Music Therapy. She went to undergraduate school at Augustana College in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and attended KU for graduate studies.
She began as the vocal music director in the fall of 1998 and loves the opportunity to work with many talented church members in the choir and through special music. She works to bring a variety of music to the worship service.
Upon arriving in KC, she and her husband Jeff started looking for a church that would fit their views on inclusivity. They were excited to find Trinity UMC where they felt the people were warm, welcoming, and genuinely interested in making all people feel at home in the church.
