Interim Director of Elementary Ministry
Hi! My name is Katy Rowan, and I was blessed to grow up here at Trinity. I fell in love with Youth Group and was an active member throughout my time in junior and senior high. I’m excited to jump into elementary education and work with all of the kiddos at Trinity. I love hanging with friends and family, exercising, working the crossword, traveling, and spending time with my sweet dog, Remi. I’ve always wanted to be involved in the church as an adult, and I’m honored to take on this role under one of my absolute favorite people – Tami Voyles. I look forward to serving Trinity and hope to provide the same wonderful experience I had growing up here.
