A joyful people daring to live God's inclusive vision!


Rev. Dr. Patrick Moore, Senior Pastor     

I have served as the pastor of Trinity United Methodist Church since 2010.  I love Trinity and all its strengths and quirkiness.  My professional passion is helping people build personal capacity for spiritual transformation.  

I recently returned from my fifth military deployment.  I spent most of 2014 in Djibouti in the Horn of Africa. I serve as a Chaplain in the Missouri Army National Guard. 

I am married to Rev. Stephanie Moore and we are blended family with three wonderful children: Drake, Keely, and Cole. 

My other passions include Trinitarian theology, lowering institutional and personal anxiety, the Kansas City Royals, and the Baylor Bears.



Pastor Kelly Hansen
I began serving as Associate Pastor of Trinity UMC in March 2015.  I have grown to love the church from its stone walls to all of the people within!  I love the open welcoming nature of the community that has so generously offered me a place within their midst. 
I am currently studying at Saint Paul School of Theology planning to graduate in May 2016 with a Master of Divinity and seeking ordination in the United Methodist Church as elder.  My undergraduate degree is from Montana State University Bozeman, Montana in Business Management with emphasis in Economics and French.  I also hold an Associate of Applied Arts in Culinary Arts from College of Southern Nevada in Las Vegas where I worked in the food service industry. 
I moved to Kansas City in 2004 where I love spending time with my spouse Mark, my sister and her family, and my greyhound Bear.


Becky Stevens, Director of Vocal Music, 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.

Becky 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.




Robert H. Rowlett, Director of Instrumental Music, earned his Bachelor's degree in organ performance and sacred music at the University of South Dakota. He holds a Master's Degree encompassing organ and voice performance, and music pedagogy from the University of Missouri, Kansas City.  We celebrated Robert's 25 years of service at Trinity in the fall of 2012.

Robert serves as Director of Instrumental Music and Organist at Trinity. While at Trinity, Robert works from his studio instructing students in piano, voice and organ. Currently he serves on the staff at the Community of Christ world headquarters in Independence, Missouri presenting organ recitals and playing for services year round. Robert also serves as the choral accompanist for the Turner Unified School Districts high school and middle school.
