BUILDING A COMMUNITY OF GOD-SEEKERS
We are a God-Seeking, Christ-Centered, Spirit-Filled Church.
OUR FOUNDING PASTORS
Pastors Joe and Nancy are passionate about reaching Dallas. Their love for people and ministry led them to launch Trinity Dallas in 1995. Prior to launching this church, they served on the staff of Sojourn Church in Carrolton.
Their God-given mission is to build a community for God-Seekers. They are driven by a hope to see people live to their fullest potential and believe authenticity and transparency are vital to a strong and vibrant spiritual family. Making disciples, raising up spiritual sons and daughters, and training leaders are the focus of their strategy as they are committed to building and growing a healthy, happy church that impacts the city of Dallas and reflects Heaven here on Earth.
They are proud parents of two married children who have blessed them with seven precious granddaughters and one grandson.
Pastor Robert and Carla met right after college while they were both evangelists on college campuses. They married in 1984 and began pastoring a small church in Dallas. Their journey includes moving to Arizona to pastor a second church, moving back to Dallas where Robert worked at Weir’s Furniture Village and then became a sales manager at a furniture store in Mississippi. In 2000, Robert joined a ministry to athletes in Austin and became an associate pastor there. Carla homeschooled their four children for 12 years. She then served as church secretary and did individual ministry in Austin. Robert joined the staff of Trinity Dallas in 2009 as Associate Pastor. Both minister in individual, pre-marriage, and marriage counseling. They have four grown children, four grandchildren and a cat.
UPTOWN CAMPUS PASTORS
Pastor Matthew and Jane joined Trinity Church in 1999 and became members of our staff in March of 2001.
Matthew and Jane met at Youth With A Mission in Tyler, Texas in 1993 when they were teenagers. Married in 1995, they served in missions for 4 years then came to Dallas to receive further training at Christ For The Nations and Matthew later graduated from Dallas Baptist University with a degree in business administration. With hearts passionate for Jesus they felt called to serve in the local church. Matthew and Jane have served in children’s ministry, marriage ministry and pastoral care. Matthew has served on the executive team for many of his years at Trinity. He currently serves as an elder and campus pastor at Trinity Church.
Matthew and Jane have ten children, they have homeschooled all of them and live on a little piece of heaven in South Dallas that they affectionately call “The Rowland Ranch.” They believe that raising their big family and pointing them to Jesus is their first calling. Second to that is their calling to love people and help others grow in their relationships with Jesus at Trinity Church. It is a joy and honor for them to serve as campus pastors at our Uptown Campus.

OUR BOARD MEMBERS
Trinity Dallas began as a church plant in 1995 when Pastors Terry and Susan Moore sent Joe and Nancy from Sojourn Church in Carrollton. They continue to be mentors and a source of support for our pastors and church.
Our first service was held in the ballroom of the Stoneleigh Hotel in Uptown Dallas on January 22, 1995. After our church outgrew several venues across the city, God created an opportunity for us here on Cole Avenue. Since purchasing this property in 1998, we have joined the C3 movement of churches who are pursuing the vision and mission of the church on a global scale.
Trinity Dallas has become a place for families and friends to experience and celebrate the goodness of God. If you are searching for more of God and are looking for a place where people authentically love one another and love God, then this church is for you! Our hope is that the Holy Spirit would add you to our community and that you would become a vital part of our spiritual family. We have prayed and prepared for you.
The Bible: Our Foundation
We believe that the Bible is the inspired, infallible, uniquely authoritative Word of God (2 Tim 3:16; 2 Pet 1:21; Rom 15:4; 1 Cor 2:13).
God: Our Creator
We believe in one eternal, almighty, and perfect God, who eternally exists in three divine persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, who created all that exists for the purpose of revealing his glory (Matt 28:18-19; Mk 12:29; Jn 1:14; Heb 1:1-3; Acts 5:3-4).
Jesus: Our Rescuer
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious death on behalf of sinful people to atone for sin through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory (Jn 1:1; Matt 1:23; Heb 4:14-15; Acts 13:26-34; Jn 3:16; 1 Pet 2:24; Phil 2:9-11).
The Holy Spirit: Our Passion
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. The baptism in the Holy Spirit releases the fullness of the Spirit and is evidenced by the fruits and gifts of the Holy Spirit (Jn 14:16-17, 16:7-15; 1 Cor 12:8-10; Eph 4:7-13; Rom 12:3-8; Acts 1:4-5, 2:4).
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is essential (Titus 3:5; Jn 6:63; 2 Cor 3:6, 18; Rom 5:1; 1 Jn 5:11-12).
Unity in Christ: Our Birthright
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (1 Cor 12:12-27; Eph 4:3-10; Col 3:14-15).
Together, we affirm the ancient beliefs of the church fathers as outlined in the Apostles’ Creed and Nicene Creed.
Resurrection: Our Future Hope
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of condemnation (1 Cor 15:51-52; 1 Thess 4:13-18; 2 Thess 1:7-9).
