Pastors & Staff

REV. DR. BRYAN ECKELMANN

Lead Pastor

Bryan was found by Christ at an early age, but God’s call to ministry came in college. Passionate about inviting and encouraging people to walk with Christ, Bryan served congregations for over 30 years before joining Trinity this year. Thrilled to teach and preach at almost any time or occasion, he also loves writing, shaping worship experiences, and meeting new people. 

Bryan and his wife, Timberly, have two children – Bryan J and his wife live in San Antonio, TX with their six-year-old daughter who wants to be a princess and President of the United States. Along with a new grandson, Susi and her husband, Randy, live in Los Angeles (just close enough to be routinely bothered by their parents!). 

When Bryan’s not at church or learning something new, photography, golf, cooking, cycling, and taking long walks with Timberly fill Bryan’s time. He also loves to sing, play guitar and piano, and occasionally compose or arrange music.

Rev. Dr. Steven Miller

Steve grew up in Palos Verdes in a church-going family. After coming to Christ in high school, Steve said yes to the Lord’s leading which took him to ministry in the Sierra mountains, New Jersey and the USSR. Steve graduated from Cal Poly Pomona with a B.S.; Princeton Seminary with an M.Div.; and Fuller Seminary with his D. Min. Steve is happily married to Mende and is excited about his two wonderful kids, Joshua and Hannah Rae, as they spring board from college at Whitworth.
