Trish Winters

Senior Pastor
E-mail Trish Winters

Rev. Trish, a 2002 graduate from Lexington Theological Seminary, has had the opportunity to explore several types of ministry during her 18 year tenure, from Regional work in Arizona, to youth ministry in the Episcopal Church! Before her call to First CC though, she has been serving churches in the Kansas City metro as an Interim, helping churches manage transformation and transition. During that time, she witnessed the inspirational courage and strength of the Christian community, as people of deep faith, dared to forge into an unknown future. Energetic, hope-filled, and deeply spiritual, Rev. Trish looks forward to encouraging the community of FCC, as they look toward their own future and wonder, with God, how they will grow spiritually, express their love of Christ, serve their neighborhood and her people, and worship with gladness!

Rev. Trish is married to Rev. Brett Winters (Senior Minister of Raymore Christian Church), and together, they have one silly dog . They both love to travel (national parks are their favorite!), play board games, read, and explore Kansas City.
