Rev. Jack Gillam (Senior Pastor)





It is a great joy to be part of the Mission and Ministry Team of Trinity Lutheran Church and School. “Connecting People to Jesus ~ Building Homes of Faith” is my mission focus and I invite you partner with me in this mission of serving Christ.

I was born and raised a Cornhusker in Scottsbluff, Nebraska, then attended college at St. John’s College in Winfield, Kansas and Concordia University in Seward, Nebraska graduating with a degree in Elementary Education. I served as a DCE in Houston and Austin, Texas and in Birmingham, Alabama prior to entering the seminary in St. Louis. After graduating from Concordia Seminary, I served as pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church in Amherst, Nebraska and then Senior Pastor of St. John’s Lutheran Church and School in Stuttgart, Arkansas. I serve as a member of the Executive Board of Pastoral Leadership Institute – International responsible for leadership training of pastors in Tanzania, West Africa.

My wife, Lin, is a teacher – now teaching first grade in Grand Island Public Schools. We have three sons and daughter-in-laws and one grandchild.





Rev. Adam Snoberger




I was born and raised in Lincoln Nebraska.

I Love being at Trinity because God’s people at this vibrant congregation know their Savior and have a zest for serving the people he’s put around them.

My family includes Jess, my beautiful and intelligent wife, whose passions are teaching, technology, and teaching technology. She brings the joy of spontaneity to our life. My bubbly daughter who jibber-jabbers from the time she wakes up to the time she falls asleep. Twin boys whose idea of fun is to spit their food right back out at mommy and daddy. A puggle that figures she can do whatever she wants since she’s the queen of the world.

Other than hanging out with my family, I enjoy running, grilling, and screaming at the TV during pretty much any Husker sporting event.

A Bible verse on my mind as of late – “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light” (1 Peter 2:9). How’s that for an identity! Pretty great (and undeserving!) for someone as messed up as me.






Mrs. Eunice McCarty (Director of Family Life Ministry)


I am blessed to serve as Director of Family Life Ministry at Trinity as I “Walk Hand in Hand with Christ in His Mission”. This ministry encompasses birth through death, focusing on Christian education, children’s ministry, parenting, GriefShare, family events, and outreach into the community

Both singles and family units will find Trinity cares about them as individuals. We welcome people from all walks of life into our church family as we offer spiritual, educational, and social opportunities for all ages throughout the week.

My husband, Leonard, and I have lived in Grand Island for 36 years. We enjoy spending time with our three children and three grandchildren along with traveling throughout the United States.










Rachel Richardson (Office Manager)


Rachel is the Office Manager at Trinity Lutheran Church. She has worked at Trinity for four years.

Rachel was born and raised in Fairbury, NE. She moved to Grand Island with her husband David and their first child in 2001. Since then they have had two more children and all three attend Trinity Lutheran School. Her family is her biggest joy.

David works for Equitable Bank as their Community Bank President/Chief Lending Officer and puts all of his free time into making memories with Rachel and the kids.

They have been blessed and are very grateful to be considered a part of Trinity’s family.











Mrs. Natalie Nielsen (Business Manager)


It is a pleasure to be a part of Trinity Lutheran Church and School. I have been a member since 2009 and became the Business Manager in 2014.

I was born and raised in Grand Island. I attended the University of Nebraska – Lincoln. Soon afterward, I met my husband, Brandon. He is the Hay Tools Manager and Case IH. Together we have three beautiful and crazy daughters, Neleigh, Alexa, and Charlie. In my spare time, I love to watch and play volleyball and my husband and I like to run races together.















David Lindeman (DCE)


David Lindeman is our Director of Christian Education. He is responsible for youth and young adult ministries. David graduated from Concordia University in Seward majoring in Elementary Education and Christian Education Leadership (also known as DCE). He also had a minor in psychology. He is married to Carli who also attended Concordia University. Carli majored in Exercise Science hoping to pursue a career in either Occupational Therapy or Physical Therapy. She is the head coach of HLHS’s Volley team. In addition she’ll be serving as a kindergarten aid at Trinity Lutheran School this year. David was born and raised in Arvada, Colorado. He grew up in a church working household. His dad, Tim, was a DCE for most of David’s life and now is a pastor.
