Pastor Zach Holdorf, Senior Pastor

Pastor Zach Holdorf and his wife Katrina came to Trinity in 2012. At Trinity, his position is to serve as coordinator of all ministries at Trinity Lutheran Church. With a love for the Scriptures and a heart for the lost, this role suits his gifting and passion. If you ever want to chat a while, his door is open.

Pastor Zach is originally from Springfield, Nebraska. He continued his college education in his home state, graduating in 2008 from Concordia University in Seward, NE with a B.A. in history. He then attended Concordia Seminary in St. Louis where he completed his ministerial formation in 2012. Pastor Zach was ordained into the Office of the Pastoral Ministry on May 24th, 2012 and was installed at Trinity on June 8th, 2012.

After getting to know Pastor Zach, you will quickly find he enjoys sports of all kinds. His interests include playing softball, golf, basketball, ping pong, bowling, and tennis. Come fall, he will be glued to the television as he cheers on the Nebraska Corn Huskers. Go Big Red! During the summer months, he will be keeping his eye on Cubs baseball and will fish as often as he can. He is truly blessed to be serving at Trinity and looks forward to the journey ahead.

Pastor Timothy Smith, Associate Pastor

Pastor Tim Smith accepted God’s call to be the Associate Pastor at Trinity in May of 2019, and was ordained and installed later that year on July 28. He is always excited to preach and teach God’s Word, for that is where the saving grace that God has promised can be found.

Pastor Smith hails from Sterling Heights, Michigan, which is just north of Detroit. He graduated from Concordia Wisconsin in 2015 where he majored in History. He then attended Concordia Seminary in St. Louis where he graduated in 2019.

A fan of all things Star Wars, Pastor Smith greatly enjoys reading, going to the movies, and board games. If he isn’t at home or Trinity, then he is probably at the library or Barnes and Noble, browsing for the next book to read. Pastor Smith is thrilled to be a part of Trinity, and eager to see where the Lord will lead His people.

Tina Dickens, Parish Administrator

Tina serves Trinity as the Parish Administrator and has responsibility for the finances, human resources, the church administrative staff and facility management. She joined Trinity in August of 2015.

Tina is a native of Alabama and has worked in various administrative positions in the health care industry. She is an avid supporter of the Alabama Crimson Tide. She is married to James and they have four children.

Rick Stengl, DCE Minister of Youth & Children

Rick Stengl accepted God’s call for him to be Minister of Youth and Children in May of 2003 and was installed as Director of Christian Education (DCE) in September of 2011. He is responsible for all aspects of Trinity’s Youth Ministries.

Before accepting his position he was a volunteer leader for the Senior High Ministries for two years. He then headed up the Junior High Ministry for three years before taking the responsibility of temporarily overseeing all Youth Ministries in August of 2002 with the departure of our full-time Youth Minister.

Rick has been a member of Trinity all his life. He grew up in Wausau and graduated from Northcentral Technical College with an Associate Degree in Marketing. Before coming to Trinity he managed a movie theater for six years and later was employed by Wausau/Liberty Insurance for three years and Endries International for two years. In 2010 he earned an Associate Degree and a BA in business management from Concordia Wisconsin and in July of 2011 he received certification as a DCE from Concordia University, St. Paul.

He is married to his wife Faith who works full-time and together they have two young children. Rick enjoys basketball, golfing, soccer, any Wisconsin sports team and anything electronic.

Dennis Pegorsch, Pastor Emeritus

Pastor Dennis Pegorsch accepted the call to the pastoral position at Trinity Lutheran Church and School in March of 1996. He “repositioned” in April of 2007 but plans to continue to be involved with ministry at Trinity in the areas of Older Adult Ministry, Wausau Christian Outreach Center for the Blind, Home Visitation and Family Camping.

He was born in Shawano, Wisconsin and grew up in Manawa, Wisconsin. He attended Concordia College in Milwaukee, Concordia Senior College in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri (graduating in 1967). He later received a Master’s degree in Social Work from the University of WI-Milwaukee (1971) and the Doctor of Ministry degree from Concordia Seminary, St. Louis (1994).

The Lord has blessed Pastor Pegorsch with four children: David, Christine and Kim (twins) and Jeffrey and numerous grandchildren. Pastor Pegorsch enjoys gardening, camping, reading, hiking, and spending time with his family.
