I love my church. I love how Trinity does everything with the highest levels of Integrity.
Let me list for you the ways:
- We are one of the only churches in Lubbock that submits to extensive financial auditing by an outside financial agency. I’m not kidding. Every year we open the books, provide office space, and let the auditors share our work space to make sure that we are continuing to operate in a responsible and legal way.
- We are fully accredited by the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA), and publicly make all relevant financial data available for members and the Lubbock community.
- We hold every individual ministry responsible to a stringent set of values, and yearly goals. I’ve never heard of a church that spends such massive amounts of time making sure that we are continuing to stay relevant to our community and church members. We critique, praise, change, and evaluate all areas of ministries yearly. We are committed to make the best use of our time, and make sure that we are doing all things to fit the Vision, Mission, and Values of our church.
- We give pastors and senior leaders in our church sabbatical at specific intervals of their employment time. It’s built into the employee handbook!
Probably the most important part of our church culture maintaining a high level of Integrity is attributed to our Senior Pastor, Carl Toti. Pastor Toti has a unbelievably high level of integrity, and provides my family with a great shelter of protection from all that would seek to destroy the work of the Lord that we are doing here in Lubbock. In his 10 years at Trinity, he as guided this church to new levels and is continuing to push us to new and exciting places for the future. There are few men in this world more worthy of being followed than my Pastor. Most of our integrity as a church begins and ends with this man and his family; and he has proven to be a steady hand to lead us forward.
