My name is Michael Au and I’ve been coming to Trinity Church since November 2006.The first day I came, I felt God’s love through the people at Trinity. My definition of love is being cared for, being valued and being accepted. From God’s love, I surrendered my heart to Jesus as Lord and Savior three months after my first visit to Trinity. Since then life has not been the same.

Hey all! My name is Jeffrey Cao and I am the administrative assistant here at Trinity. What exactly do I do? It’s kind of hard to explain. One of the things I do is support our ministries and volunteer with our youth at the church. Whether it’s with set up, prep work, even getting all our bulletins and programs printed out, I’m the guy they go to. Plus, every now and then there’s some IT needs and I lend a hand. I am a kind of a “hands-on” person, if you will.

George started coming to Trinity when he was in junior high in 1955 when a friend brought him to service. During that time, he was looking for a church to attend. He has been with Trinity since and in 1967, a friend brought Gracie to Trinity. They met, fell in love and got married the following year. They have been attending Trinity since then.
