Holy Trinity Lutheran Church believes that Jesus Christ has called his people to serve the international community in his name. Holy Trinity gives ongoing monthly support to international ministries that share the love of Jesus with other people. The church also travels abroad to work with these international mission partners. Designated individuals on the Board of Elders are responsible for overseeing this area of ministry.
