We recently introduced Trent Senske as our new Pastoral Resident at Trinity City Church. The residency is designed to give Trent more pastoral experience as he continues to work towards planting Immanuel Fellowship in south Minneapolis.
If you missed the introduction, then listen to the audio below.
Also check out this video Trent did with Pastor Bryan for his latest update.
Finally, here is a short bio of Trent from his website:
Early on, I sensed a calling to spiritual leadership, and so for seven years I learned the ropes of discipleship, preaching, and leadership by ministering to college students. For the past several years, I worked for Coram Deo Church in Omaha, NE, as a pastoral assistant, in the privileged role of serving and shadowing Pastor Bob Thune. [...]
Last year, God called me to start a church in Minneapolis — or perhaps more accurately — the Spirit unfolded how Jesus had been hinting at it for years.
In college, I voiced interest in church planting to my pastor, mostly because I thought it was cool. But after college, I became convinced it was crazy. I loved the thought of [church] planting, but I was reluctant about the work. Nevertheless, one morning while walking and praying in Memphis I sensed the Lord saying, “Give your life to preaching the gospel, planting urban churches, and training leaders for my Kingdom.” In August, we moved to Minneapolis to get assessed as potential planters and begin that work.
