Rev. Tex Sample, Ph.D., Interim Pastor

Email:  texsample@cox.net

Tex Sample is the interim pastor at Trinity United Methodist Church while Patrick is away on a deployment to Djibouti, Africa.  Here's a bit from Tex:  I take this occasion to greet you and express my genuine delight in being appointed the interim pastor here at Trinity United Methodist Church. I have long admired this congregation, its commitments, and it’s important convictions at this time in the life of the wider church.  It is my hope that we can continue the strong ministry that the Rev. Patrick Moore already has in place and that we can continue to strengthen that so that upon his return he can step right back into this congregation and its vital mission.

  

 


 

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.
