Christel Buck

Children and Youth Minister

Email Christel

Christel became involved with Trinity in 2004. After connecting with the congregation and teaching Sunday School, she answered the call to become the Children’s Ministries Director in 2007. Since then, the Children and Youth Ministries have joined, changing her title to Children and Youth Minister. Christel finds great joy in watching Trinity’s children grow into teens. She says she is blessed by the support of amazing volunteers who are called to bring the love of Jesus Christ into the lives of these children and youth.

“I believe all children should know the power of God’s love,”Christel says. This belief led her team to start Trinity’s OPEN DOOR program. OPEN DOOR is the philosophy that ALL children, no matter their level of learning or physical ability, should be welcome to experience our children and youth programs. It follows the command of Jesus in Matthew 19:14: “Let the children come to me. Do not hinder them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.”

Christel and her husband Scott enjoy kayaking, fishing, and all sorts of outdoor activities.  They are proud parents of Torrin, Kiley, Amanda, Kelsie, and Evan.  They also enjoy spending time spoiling their baby grand-daughter, Braelyn.
