STAFF   Here to help and serve you however we can

  • steve voelker     Lead Pastor

    I've been serving at Trinity since February of 2017 after pastoring the previous 10 in Western Michigan. After graduating from Indiana University and Concordia Theological Seminary, my wife Linda (see below!) and I have been blessed to raise three adult children who've given us seven grandchildren. Now that we're empty nesters, Linda and I have a little more time to hike the  trails, though our first love is serving our Trinity family and sharing God's amazing message of salvation with the community.


  • tamra schaaf     music director

    Tammy has been the organist at Trinity for twelve years and also leads the adult choir and handbell group. She received a bachelors degree in music education from Ball State University. She has one daughter and one son and enjoys spending time with her grandchildren in Fort Wayne.


  • cristel boedecker     secretary

    I last served as a church secretary in 2011 at the Lutheran Church of Guam and I am glad to be working in the church again. My husband, Ben, our son Barnabas, and I are members of Suburban Bethlehem Lutheran Church. Barnabas is homeschooled, so if you visit the church office during the week, you might hear him practicing organ or see him helping Marilyn in the thrift store.

  • carla davis     business director

    After 33 years as the Business Office Director for Concordia Lutheran High School, I finally decided to retire to spend more with with my church family and my husband, Doug. We have two children and two grandsons who lives in Virginia. Fairly regularly I answer the calls made by the beaches on the gulf coast of Florida, but I always come back to my Lutheran friends and family here in Fort Wayne. And because I don't want to retire retire, I enjoy doing the same things for Trinity as I did for Concordia those many years.
