Meet Our Pastor

Pastor Charles J. Kanefke

Before moving to the Sunshine State, Pastor Kanefke spent the first part of his life in the Garden State, just a few miles west of New York City, where he was a member of Our Savior Lutheran Church in Fair Lawn, NJ.  For twenty years he worked in the computer industry specializing in mainframe systems administration, disaster planning, capacity & performance management, and project management.  Eventually God motivated him to attend Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, MO where he graduated with a Master of Divinity degree.  Pastor Kanefke has been serving at Trinity since 2007.  He is an Eagle Scout, and has served our community as a member of the American Red Cross and as a Guardian ad Litem.  He has been married to Kimberly for over 20 years and together they have four sons.  He enjoys traveling, a variety of music (he plays guitar in our praise band), Jersey style chili dogs and awesome barbecue.
